Stop Graphic Revisions to Ontario’s Sex Education Curriculum
Premier Kathleen Wynne is preparing to reintroduce graphic changes to the sexual education curriculum in September, 2015.
Updates to Ontario’s sexual education curriculum have been dogged with controversy since they were last proposed back in 2010 when Kathleen Wynne was Education Minister under then-Premier Dalton McGuinty.
Parents objected to the young ages at which graphic content and morally contentious topics were being introduced.
Then, as now, Ontarians want to send the strongest possible message to stop the delivery of contentious and age-inappropriate material to our children at school. We urge concerned parents and grandparents, as well as other Ontario voters to petition the Liberal government to drop the proposed changes by adding their signatures to this petition.
Please also share this petition link widely on social media and by email!!
Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario,
Liz Sandals, Ontario Minister of Education
We, the undersigned, demand an end to plans announced by the Ministry of Education to update the sexual education curriculum with changes that parents oppose because they are graphic and age-inappropriate and don’t align with the principles of many religious and cultural groups.
We do not believe that pre-pubescent children should be overloaded with graphic information about sex. As parents, grandparents, or other concerned Ontario voters we want to preserve their innocence as long as possible.
In the realm of the formation of our children, parents are the first educators and have the greatest authority over how and when sensitive material is introduced to them. We expect the schools to support and not undermine parental authority.
