Obama: Sex Ed for Kindergartners ‘Is the Right Thing to Do’
(CNSNews.com) – The Chicago Public Schools this year are mandating that the district’s kindergarten classes include sex education, fulfilling a proposal President Barack Obama supported in 2003 when he served in the Illinois state senate and later defended when he ran for president in the 2008 election cycle.
At a Planned Parenthood convention at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., on July 17, 2007, a teenage girl who said she worked as a sex-education “peer educator” in the D.C. public schools asked then-U.S. Sen. Obama what he would do to encourage the teaching of “medically accurate, age-appropriate, and responsible sex education.”
Obama first noted that he had worked with Planned Parenthood to push a sex education bill when he served in the Illinois state legislature.
‘Kids, don’t forget to make your gender choice’
California on edge of freeing students from their anatomy
Instead of only announcements about clubs, classes and curriculum to start a school day, students in California soon may be allowed to decide what gender they would like to be that day.
The California legislature has passed AB 1266 that would require all public schools to allow youths to choose whatever restrooms, locker rooms, sports teams, and other gender-based portions of the school in which they would like to participate.
Eighth grade teacher Valerie Vislay Jones said the bill sounds like a nightmare, especially for girls.
“Bathroom breaks are chaotic enough! This brings on a whole host of new discipline problems. And what about that time of the month? I can see boys using the girls’ restroom just to be funny, and then there would be no privacy for the girls. Adolescent boys do not understand the whole menstruation thing anyway, and adolescent girls do NOT want boys to know that they menstruate. Way to make adolescence even more confusing.”
