Sex Ed in Kindergarten
Would you allow your 5-year-old child to take a class on sex? Believe it or not, the Chicago Public School System recently passed a new policy that requires kindergarten teachers to spend a set amount of time covering the basics of sexual education and awareness. This curriculum includes basic anatomy and physiology, reproduction, healthy relationships and personal safety.
Dr. Stephanie Whyte, Chief Health Officer for Chicago Public Schools, joins the show via video to provide details on the new sex ed curriculum.
“What’s really important to remember here is that the school district, as the lead educational authority, is still in partnership with the parents on educating and empowering their students,” Dr. Whyte explains. “So, by all means, parents are going to be informed about what the approved lessons are. They’ll have that notice beforehand. They’ll get to review them. As well, they have the opportunity to opt out, should they decide that’s not the route they want to go.”
“Even if parents opt out, use those pamphlets as a foundation to know what to talk to your kids about,” pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears adds.
