Parents rebel over lessons on sex for pupils aged four and plans to teach homosexuality to six-year-olds
Disgusted parents threaten to pull children out of classes
‘My boy still believes in Father Christmas – he doesn’t need to be told about these things,’ said one mother

A primary school is facing a parents’ revolt over the content of sex education classes for children as young as four.
Up to 20 families are said to be prepared to withdraw youngsters from the lessons because of concerns they are being sexualised too soon with discussions about homosexuality, masturbation and orgasms.
Under the plans, those aged six could be taught about same-sex relationships and the difference between ‘good and bad touching’. Topics for ten-year-olds include orgasm and masturbation.
Grenoside Primary already offers sex education to pupils in the two oldest year groups, but is now seeking to extend its programme to the younger children. (Posed by models)
Grenoside Community Primary in Sheffield already offers sex education to pupils in the two oldest year groups, but is planning to extend it to the younger ones as well.
Some parents have been shocked by details of the lessons revealed in consultation meetings.

Headmaster Colin Fleetwood insists the material is not explicit and is in line with national curriculum guidelines. But parents including Louise Leahy – who has four children aged five to ten at the 319-pupil school – are furious.
‘There is a great deal of material in there which children don’t need to know at such a young age,’ the 41-year-old said. ‘It’s almost like the lessons and videos shown are saying, “Put all your toys in the bin, now it’s time to grow up”.’

She said some of the vocabulary used for the first two year groups is inappropriate, and objected to a DVD for older children showing a man lying on top of a woman.
Videos about people touching themselves encourage children ‘to think in a sexual way’, she said, adding: ‘One governor told me her child needs to know this stuff because she watches Emmerdale and EastEnders, but mine don’t and I don’t want them to.’
Katie Burrell, 26, whose six-year-old son Redd is at the school, agreed, saying: ‘My boy still believes in Father Christmas, he doesn’t need to be told these things.
‘The lessons for six- and seven-year-olds are far too explicit. I think a lot of parents will take their children out of these classes.
‘I am by no means a prude, but some of this is beyond stupidity.’
Mr Fleetwood said governors will decide what can taught following the consultation. He added: ‘We want this to be a positive learning experience which will help our children make sensible and responsible decisions as they grow up.’
His view was echoed by Dr Sonia Sharp, executive director for children, young people and families at Sheffield City Council, who said the lessons are widely taught at other primary schools in the city.
More than a fifth of UK primaries offer sex education, the content of which is decided by governors. It is compulsory only at secondaries.
Labour planned to make the subject compulsory from age five. Yesterday, the Department for Education said it is reviewing the subject.
FABIAN PERVERTS IN WESTMINSTER!
NEED TO KNOW IS THE BEST POLICY- WHEN KIDS ASK- ANSWER THE QUESTION ASKED WITH COMPLETE HONESTY- LEAVE IT UNTIL THE CHILD ASKS THE NEXT QUESTION- BEIT A YEAR LATER.
Sixty years ago when I started school we had no sex education, we learned from our friends and what we overheard from adults. The birth rate for teenagers was very low. Children only need limited sex education. Teach them to read and write instead. That’s where schools are failing. Teachers of today have been indoctrinated by know-all know-nothing PC zealots.

Children dont need to be taught about homosexuals and masturbation they are constant bombarded by it on the TV they do however need to know how to protect themselves against predatory adults this should be done by the parents but I dont think all parents know how and when to do this so maybe a book about that would be helpful to some

PARENTS HAD THE CHILD – YES?
My 10 year old daughter know basically how babies are made – I found a fantastic book to share with her which gives just enough information but not too much. She was happy with that as she’d started to ask questions and I wanted to answer them honestly but in a limited way. I would certainly take her out of lessons that I felt were inappropriate for her age and level of understanding – I will decide when to enhance her knowledge. I don’t believe sex education belongs in school, it should be taught within the security of family relationships with people she trusts.

This will have a lot of uninetended consequences. My son is 6 and there is no way I would want his innocent mind “polluted ” with this. Good and bad touching? They don’t even have the mental capacity to fully understand this so will just get confused. As for teaching homosexuality…. teaching them that people are different is enough without getting to that level. Let kids be kids

NOT UNINTENDED AT ALL!!
When I was a kid over 50 years ago we were told not to talk to strange men. However, now that we know about paedos, children should be gently told that inappropriate touching should be reported at once to their parents. Sex education, and teaching about homosexuality however is quite different and young children should not need to know about this until later.on. I managed to download that appalling film on C4 from youtube to see what it was all about and sent it to all and sundry. It was awful that this so called sex education was being shown to infants. It has since been taken off of Youtube, but its too late. The film clip has now gone worldwide.

My daughter is 10. The last lot of sex ed lessons made her roll her eyes upwards and ask us why she needed to know about this stuff. I’d bought her a book about puberty, etc, so she could read it when she wanted to. Now she’s too embarrassed to look at it. I do think that kids self censor this stuff and only take on what they can handle, but I do wonder where and when we say enough with this kind of thing. Our kids already have a ludicrously short childhood thanks to this generations over sexualisation. It would be nice to let our kids be kids for as long as possible and for parents to decide, based on what their own kids are like, what they need to know and when.

Schools are not safe any more for children . Stay away!
INTENDED….MORALS OF THE WESTERN WORLD THROWN INTO THE GUTTER!
Are the inmates running the (public school) asylum?
Nearly every week, I come across an article where parents in some community are in an uproar over school districts promoting inappropriate sexual materials to our kids. Whether it’s related to homosexual behavior or other age-inappropriate sexual issues, there seem to be school districts across the land intent on sexualizing our kids.
Honestly, it’s as if there’s an orchestrated public school porn push taking place.
This week’s example can be found in a New York Post article concerning New York City schools. Under a mandatory “sex ed” curriculum, the department of education wants middle and high school students taught their version of the birds and the bees.
Sounds harmless enough, so what does that consist of? Let’s break it down.
First, the curriculum is rightly criticized by child psychiatrist Miriam Grossman for teaching kids that abstinence or using condoms both represent “responsible healthy choices.” I don’t know about your kids, but if I tell my kids to either abstain from something or go ahead and do it if they want to, they are not going to abstain.
Mixed messages don’t work with children. You have to be clear and let them know exactly what they can and cannot do. So let’s not kid ourselves that this is an abstinence message, it is not. Rather, it’s a green light to start having sex at 11 years of age.
And look at what else they want to teach our 11 and 12 year olds – the students will be given “risk cards” to rate the “safety” of several activities, which include intercourse with a condom, mutual masturbation, oral sex and anal sex. (Did I mention that this was for 11 and 12 year olds?)
What about teenagers in high school? It gets worse. They’ll be required to go to stores and study condoms – brands, prices and features. And they’ll be referred to wholesome resources like Columbia University’s Go Ask Alice web site, which includes discussions on different sexual positions, sadomasochism, phone sex, porn stars and bestiality. Not kidding.
The alleged “justification” for this porn push, I mean “sex ed,” is to curb unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Really? Since when does telling kids to have sex reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies and STDs?
In reality, it appears to be just another vehicle the government can use to sexualize our children.
And how are public schools doing with teaching our kids what we pay them to teach – “reading, writing, ‘rithmetic” – as they used to say? Not so good. We are near the bottom of the list of industrialized countries in performance in these and other important areas (which means our schools are spending valuable teacher time and scarce resources on sex lessons but our kids can’t read).
Are the inmates running the asylum or what?
PRE WW2 GERMANY HAD THE VERY SAME COMPLAINT!!

Well, maybe New York kids will know how to have sex with animals safely (what about the poor animal) and how to have anal sex, but can they write a complete sentence? Can they spell? Can they tell us the reasons for the American Revolution, and why our Constitution and Declaration of Independence are unique among the world’s governing documents? Do they know the reasons for World War I and WW II? And, can they compete in science and math with the rest of the world? That is what the schools need to be preaching and teaching?
NOPE AKIN TO BRITISH KIDS DUMBED DOWN!!

This very subject matter came up when my children were school age. Iattended a board meeting and posed the question: During fire safety week do you teach children how to make Molitov cocktails so they won’t make them? Do you teach them how to play with matches? Do you teach them how to light firecrackers, all in the name of teaching them how to responsibly engage in these activities?
We have OWS. Why don’t some parents organize PAPIS; Parents Against Porn In School? Or some such and organize mass truancy?

Yes, Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, and those featured on Swamp People are eminently qualified to teach their children….
Return control of the Public Schools to the immediate public whose children are at those schools. That will essentially change the current government controlled schools into private-like schools. Ending the Federal Control of what should be controlled locally is the real answer.

Thanks for reminding me of a class I once had teaching 4.1/2 year olds to read, write and do simple
math. It was done in a matter of a few months ! Granted, I only had 4 students. Also I was 9 years
old at the time and my mother’s kitchen was not always available so school was not a daily affair.
As for taking the children out of the public school system – Yes ! That is a matter of saving their
minds. Good read: “Separating School and State” by Sheldon Richman.

The solution is NOT to “fix” the public schools.
The solution is to CLOSE THEM DOWN!
Sell off the property to the private sector. Let any public school teachers who are any good apply to teach in private schools, or tutor children in the home.

As a home-schooling, libertarian/conservative parent, I have just one question to ask of TH parents:
Why on earth are you STILL sending your precious kids to the government propaganda camps (sometimes quaintly called “public schools”)?
Take them OUT. Do it today!
Invest a few hundred bucks in some educational programs and a laptop computer (you’ve probably already got the latter).
GONE will be: peer pressure to have sex, to dress like skanks, to try drugs. GONE will be bullying. GONE will be the pressure to cheat on tests–homeschooled children learn very quickly that the only thing that matters is learning, NOT passing some officially-sanctioned test.

Public schools have been taken over by the socialist/communist left. The teacher’s colleges are teaching a raft of methods that don’t work and providing instruction on things that are not true.
One example is Gardiner’s 7 types of IQ. There is no scientific evidence these exist. It was just a hunch by Gardiner and he said so. That has not stopped the educational “leaders” from using it to draw equivalencies between geniuses at math and people that can dance pretty well. They are not insane, just Satanic.
WHY WOULD THE ADL ANTISEMITIC HUNTERS BE INVOLVED IN SEXUAL EDUCATION?
Same-sex marriage will be taught in public schools.
The California Department of Education’s website states: “According to Sex Education in California Public Schools,…96 percent of California school districts provide comprehensive sexual health education.”
California Education Code section 51933 dictates that any school district that provides comprehensive sexual health education must teach “respect for marriage and committed relationships”; that the instruction “shall be appropriate for use with pupils of all… sexual orientations”; and that the instruction “may not reflect or promote bias against any person on the basis of any category protected by Section 220” (which includes sexual orientation).
In addition, if the sponsors of the No on 8 campaign have their way, parents and children will be denied the protection of current California laws requiring prior parental notification of sex education content and the right to excuse children from offensive instruction. This has already happened in Massachusetts, where same-sex marriage was also imposed by a bare 4-3 majority of that state’s Supreme Court. Massachusetts parents recently sued when they were told that children as young as kindergarteners would be taught about same-sex marriage, and that parents would not be given prior notice of such instruction or the opportunity to excuse their children from it, despite a Massachusetts statute requiring notice and a right to opt out (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 71, § 32A).
Three of the biggest sponsor organizations of the No on 8 campaign – the Anti-Defamation League, the Human Rights Campaign, and the ACLU – filed briefs urging the court in Massachusetts to reject the parents’ claims and to deny their right to receive prior notice and to excuse their children from offensive instruction. The court ruled against the parents, as it was urged to do by those organizations. Those same organizations are now helping pay for deceptive advertisements assuring parents that legalized same-sex marriage will not result in their children being taught about same-sex marriage in the public schools (read more).
Another sponsor of the No on 8 campaign has advised California school districts that parents do not have a right to receive prior notice of instruction regarding same-sex marriage or to opt their children out of such instruction. The National Center for Lesbian Rights has published a document entitled LGBT Legal Issues for School Attorneys. This document argues that classroom instruction that covers same-sex marriage without explicitly discussing “human reproductive organs and their functions” is not subject to California’s parental notice and opt-out laws.
Unless Proposition 8 passes, almost all California schools will be legally required to teach same-sex marriage on an equal footing with traditional marriage. Once same-sex marriage is incorporated into the public school curriculum, organizations now opposing Proposition 8 will argue that parents have no right to receive prior notice of, or to opt their children out of, that instruction.
Vote YES on Proposition 8 to protect children from indoctrination and to preserve parents’ right to direct the moral upbringing of their children.
My school district will teach gay marriage and Jack O’Connell knows it!
