No wonder home schooling is gaining adherents
This New York Post article on sex ed curriculum to be taught in New York City public schools is more than eyebrow raising. The topics are shocking — yet the courses will be mandatory in middle and high schools next year.
If that’s not bad enough, check out the asterisk* marked subjects that will be taught to 11 and 12-year-old children. The specifics are graphic enough that we’ll let you check out the topics of study yourselves. There are four short paragraphs marked in this manner. Whereas the first two will have you steamed, the last two are guaranteed to enrage.
Student field trips will include a visit to the local pharmacy, where they will compare and contrast condoms in terms of brand, price, and specific features. Others will research and map out a route from school to clinics providing birth control and STD tests. The children are also directed to Columbia University’s Go Ask Alice astoundingly graphic website.
Johnny might not be able to read, but he’ll soon find out that bestiality is not a course in grooming and obedience training for pooches at the neighborhood veterinarian’s office.
The proficiency percentages of New York City school children on National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) tests are unacceptably low. Just 22 percent of the city’s eighth graders and just 29 percent of the city’s fourth graders are reading at grade level.
Eighth-grade reading has shown no improvement since 2003. But even with “significant” fourth-grade gains, only 35 percent of city fourth-grade students are proficient in math, according to NAEP data.
Students won’t be prepared for the competitive international marketplace, but they’ll be able to price shop condoms and probably teach Bill Clinton a thing or two about….well, you know.
Here is the research report titled “Sex Ed in the NYC Public School System.” Prepared by the long-controversial SIECUS and NARAL Pro-Choice New York, it includes the Obama administration’s HHS Director Kathleen Sebelius’ stamp of approval. NARAL has gone through several incarnations since its 1969 inception — first as National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws. It then became the National Abortion Rights Action League and later National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League. Now it merely uses the less revealing acronym. But don’t be fooled. The objective is still to undermine family and religious values.
