    Default Sex Ed Teacher In Trouble For Answering Student Questions

    Teacher's sex-ed talk riles parents

    Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman, opened a bill file this week and said he will introduce legislation in January that would enforce criminal penalties on teachers who deviate from state law governing sex education, which requires that it focus on physical and emotional development of adolescents, healthy relationships and the threat and prevention of diseases. The law prohibits promoting or encouraging sexual behavior. His bill also would create a registry to record the names of teachers who violate the law.
    _____________

    Wimmer said he decided to act after hearing this week from parents about an incident at Fort Herriman Middle School. The Jordan School District is investigating allegations that a seventh- and eighth-grade health teacher violated the sex education statute by responding to questions from students about topics beyond the core curriculum, including homosexual sex, oral sex and masturbation.
    Here's the kicker, the good stuff, the oppression and the bullshit.

    Thursday morning, students put up signs at the school supporting the teacher that read, "We were the ones asking her questions."
    Sirois said he took down the signs because he does not want the matter to become divisive while it is still under investigation.
    "I'm really angry right now. I want someone to apologize to those kids and say 'I'm sorry this is not part of the curriculum,' " said Sara Dewitt, a parent who said she first heard about the teacher's comments from her child last Friday.
    Dewitt called other parents in the area to inform them what she had learned from her son and advised them to talk to their own children.
    ____
    "We are the parents. . . . We will require accountability on the part of the district," Smith said.
    Now if only the parents could be held accountable for not teaching their kids properly in the first place so Sex Ed wouldn't even be required to begin with.

    This doesn't make me unpissed or not angry or even incompletely outraged. Nope, not at all.

    ^Love the double negation there. I'm annoyed too.

    I don't care about parental responsibility (it's their own business) but their behavior here is just ridiculous.

    Sex, as an issue, is holistically a hot button issue among schools. Yet parents and school districts/policies insist on requiring sex education as part of the curriculum. But, to teach the subject, the school has to make sure not to get too graphic or technical to prevent upsetting the parents. It's such an annoying catch-22.

    Kids forced to endure this crap of a course end up getting an incomplete and obviously biased education on the subject.

    That's why you start to gradually throw the subject on them over the years, instead of overwhelming them at one moment.

    ^I'd rather have it done in one shot rather than have them waste many years. Means less time-wasting.

    I think you missed the point by miles. As in leaving Canada and passing through Mongolia on the way to Mexico.

    Most kids(you excluded) are a little smarter, than most adult's think. If you give them the low down about sex, their worst fears won't happen.

    Condoms save lives. Anal keeps you from getting knocked up.

    Yeah......ye had it fine
    Me. I had a nun for five outta six years of bio and humanities/religion.
    No choice of who to ask. She'd probably have died that bit sooner if we asked her the qs we asked the sixth year Canadian teach.
    That is retarded. Kids wanna ask questions. If they go out not knowing and get hurt/sick or hurt someone else is That somehow better?! I don't think so somehow.

    These genius government officials don't realize that TV and other media shit teach kids everything they need about sex. If they really want to depromote sex and "protect the children", they'd start censoring the media (and they would never dare do that right??? Lol).

    People are stuck on stupid when it comes to kids in general.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
