Elementary school parents in Chicago were understandably horrified and appalled when they saw the sexual education materials their fourth and fifth graders would be learning, according to Inquisitr.
Andrew Jackson Language Academy hosted several parent workshops, RT reports, in which parents received binders explaining how to “use lots of lube” and “enter anus slowly.” Angela Bryant, chairwoman of the Local School Council and mother of two, said the materials were “appalling,” “obscene” and not age-appropriate. They were composed in “a manner that actually is piquing curiosity about sexual pleasure.”
Chicago Public Schools issued a response denying the inclusion of the materials and saying it was all just a big mistake. In other words, they got caught because some parents still pay close attention to what their children are learning in school and now they’re trying to cover it up.
The Chicago Public School system immediately issued a statement regarding the curriculum, saying that the inclusion of the overly-risque topics was a mistake. Spokesman for the Chicago Public Schools Bill McCaffrey wrote that the objectionable content discovered in the binders was not intended to be included in the latest topics for fourth graders.
The objectionable material presented at Andrew Jackson Language Academy this week is not and never was part of the student sexual education curriculum. It was mistakenly downloaded and included in the parent presentation, and we agree with parents it is not appropriate for elementary school students. As part of our sexual health education policy approved by the Board of Education in 2013, Chicago Public Schools offers a comprehensive sexual education curriculum that is designed to ensure age-appropriate material and minimum instructional minutes for every grade level, consisting of family and sexual health education topics for K-12 students.”
Matt Walsh’s response to sexual education sums up my thoughts exactly:
“I don’t think public schools should teach kids about abstinence. I don’t think they should teach kids about condoms. I don’t think they should teach kids about birth control pills, or virginity pledges, or sex before marriage, or sex after marriage. I don’t think they should teach kids about any of the things on this poster (from Hocker Grove Middle School):
“Oral sex, sexual fantasy, touching each other’s genitals, anal sex, vaginal intercourse, grinding, masturbation — those all appeared on “teaching material” for a sex-ed class at Hocker Grove Middle School in Kansas. They claim this was actually part of an abstinence program, and that the photo is taken out of context.
Personally, I don’t need context. I don’t think public schools should be teaching kids, one way or another, in any context at all, for any reason whatsoever, about any of those things.
“I don’t think government schools should teach kids about sex.
It’s really very simple. How much sexual guidance and instruction should the government offer our kids? None. What percentage of your child’s government education should be comprised of sexual enlightenment? Zero percent. How many times in a given school day should the phrase “genital touching” be uttered by a teacher to a classroom of students? Less than once. Actually, let’s be safe and say zero.
“This, my friends, is the Great Compromise. Instead of arguing about WHAT the schools should tell kids on the subject of sex, let’s contemplate the possibility that a collective, government-controlled, mass produced and disseminated ”curriculum” about sex and intimacy isn’t necessarily the best way to handle such a profound and personal subject.”
