The discussion around updating sex-ed has been ongoing for years but now Premier Kathleen Wynne says the changes will be in place by September.In the new health and physical Education curriculum, grade 1 students will learn the proper names for body parts, by grade 3 kids will be taught about same sex relationships. Students in grade 4 to 6 will learn about online risks of posting or sharing sexual images or information and discussions about contraception, anal and oral sex, preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections will happen in grades 7 and 8.Education minister Liz Sandals says the revisions will bring Ontario in line with the rest of the country and that a lot of the information contained in the 240 page document is already in the curriculum now, it will just be taught at an earlier grade level. The liberals backed away from updating the sex ed curriculum in 2010 after protests from some religious groups.The opposition says there wasn’t enough parental consultation this time around but they still haven’t had a chance to review the document’s contents. While the province’s education minister says the old policy was badly out of date, not everyone is in agreement with the new one.
