From Rayne Fisher-Quann, an Ontario citizen living in Toronto
Posted July 16th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Ontario recently announced plans to revert to a 20-year-old sex-ed curriculum, rather than continue with the current curriculum which covers issues like consent, online bullying and safety, and discussions around same-sex relationships.
Petition starter Rayne believes this move will set sex-ed back decades and put students at risk — if you agree, sign today.
Under the Conservatives’ new plan, this could all change. All of the topics I mentioned before will be either seriously revised or removed altogether. This will be catastrophic for the future of our province.
In more ways than one, I grew up with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). Both my parents are teachers, and I grew up hearing stories about his classroom.
The saddest of these stories were the ones he’d tell about girls at his school showing up pregnant to their grade six graduations. This happened multiple times before the curriculum change of 2015.
The fact is, our children need sex-ed and there’s nobody better to provide it than trained, educated professionals working with a curriculum created and intensely examined by experts.
Don’t let the conservative party take away the education that our province so badly needs. Please sign and share this petition.
