Poster in a Kansas Middle School
A sex ed poster hung on a classroom door in a Kansas middle school asks, ‘How do people express their sexual feelings?’ It then lists ‘anal sex, sexual fantasy, vaginal intercourse,’ and ‘touching each other’s genitals.’ It upset at least one parent but some are just fine with it.
“I got furious,” Mark Ellis, of Shawnee, Kansas, told Fox 4 news, “And I’m still worked up about it.”
Ellis’ daughter is an eighth grade student at Hocker Grove Middle School in the Shawnee Mission School District. Last week, she came home from school and showed her parents a photograph she had taken of a poster on a classroom door.
Mr. Ellis thought it was a prank. He went to see the Principal who defended it. He then called the local Fox station.
The school’s spokesperson, Leigh Ann Neal, said it is part of the abstinence-based health curriculum.
This is about abstinence?
“The curriculum it is a part of, it aligns with national standards around those topics, and it’s part of our curriculum in the school district,” she told Fox 4 News.
Well, as long as it’s Common Core- aligned!
Mr. Ellis said they don’t even ask for parental permission to teach the sex ed classes any longer.
This should be the province of parents. The standards need some adjustments if this is how they can be interpreted.
