Sex Ed for Dummies and 5 Year Olds
From the bill:
"Each class or course in comprehensive sex education offered in any of grades K through 12 shall include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread of HIV AIDS. Nothing in this Section prohibits instruction in sanitation, hygiene or traditional courses in biology."
Later, it says all instruction and content will be "age appropriate" and parents can opt their kids out of it.
OK, if "each class" in which comprehensive sex ed if offered -- that is, kindergarten through 12th --, "shall" include instruction," (not may, not can, not could - SHALL include instruction) on prevention of sexually transmitted infection, AIDS etc. will someone please show us how that will be made "age-appropriate" for 5 and 6-year-olds. Puppets? Cartoon characters?
UPDATE: Sure, Obama tried to characterize his support for this bill in the most innocuous way possible and he's certainly entitled to do so. But the bill says what it says. What Obama voted for was "comprehensive sex education" all the way down to kindergarteners. And his supporters are the ones who are obfuscating if they say that he didn't.
