The Washington State Senate passed a proposal Wednesday that will require all grades, including kindergarten, to learn about sex. . .
“By September 1, 2020,” the proposal reads. “Every public school must provide comprehensive sexual health education as an integral part of the curriculum that is evidence-informed, medically and scientifically accurate, age-appropriate and inclusive for all students regardless of their protected class status.”
The proposal doesn’t define what is “age-appropriate” for each grade, but it states that the “superintendent of public instruction, in consultation with the department of health, shall develop a list of comprehensive sexual health education curricula that are consistent with the 2005 guidelines for sexual health information and disease prevention, the Washington state health and physical education K–12 learning standards, and this section.” . . .
A sponsor of the proposal, Washington State Sen. Claire Wilson (D), said that the youngest students will learn lessons such as what constitutes as “good touch” and “bad touch.” The bill doesn’t mention this.
If parents wish to take their children out of the curriculum, the bill says that they can do so, “upon filing a written request with the school district board of directors or, or the principal of the school their child attends.” (Read more from “State Wants Sex Ed for Kindergarteners” HERE)
