Ontario’s Sex Ed Curriculum

The gnashing of teeth is as furious now in Ontario as it was 3 years ago when the province rolled out its updated sex ed curriculum.

Mon, Jul 30, 2018

The Ontario’s Health and Physical Education curriculum was released in 2015 to a storm of criticism. Forget the fact the curriculum hadn’t been updated in almost 20 years when it was brought in. So whats changed since 1998 and 2015? The smart phone, sexting, online bullying all in the future.

The Ontario election is less than two weeks away and an issue that was in the review mirror is once again closer than the image appears. Ontario PC leader Doug Ford is trying to appease the social conservatives in the party that if he wins the election he’ll repeal the curriculum and ask for more parent consultation.

But after almost three years what happens to those students who received a bit of that curriculum but then the tap was shut off? It’s one of the questions we’ll try to solve here.
