Roseanne Colletti, NBC Newschannel 4, filed this report about NYC’s new mandatory sexuality education curriculum in October 2011.
The news conference was organized by the NYC Parents Choice coalition which is advocating an alternative abstinence-centered sex education curriculum that emphasizes “risk-avoidance” and other strategies to reduce teen pregnancy and exposure to sexually transmitted infections in girls and boys as young as 11.
“Details about the new sex education curriculum in New York City public schools are out and some are concerned the lessons are too racy.
Middle school students will be assigned “risk cards” that rate the safety of different activities, the paper says, from French kissing to oral sex.
The workbooks for older students direct them to a website run by Columbia University, which explores topics such as sexual positions, porn stars, and bestiality.
The lessons explain risky sexual behavior and suggest students go to stores to jot condom brands and prices.
The classes will be coeducational and can be incorporated into existing health education courses.”
