Teaching comprehensive sex education, from kindergarten through high school
from Education Week
It may seem odd to talk about sex education and kindergarten in the same breath, but advocates of comprehensive sexuality education say that's when this instruction should start. At that age it's a discussion of empathy, personal space, and understanding emotions. As students get older, the curriculum grows more sophisticated, focusing on subjects such as anatomy, personal safety, contraception and sexually transmitted diseases. Groups that support comprehensive sexuality education have developed the National Sexuality Education Standards, which they say provide guidance for districts on essential content.
