New sex education curriculum for Ontario announced

Ontario has unveiled its new, long-delayed updates to physical and health education, including sex education. This includes many of the changes in the ill-fated proposal from 2010, which HAT had supported but that the government withdrew under pressure from fundamentalist groups. It also includes some new topics.

A good summary of the changes from the Toronto Star is here.

If you want to exam the curriculum in all its detail, here are the pdf files from the Ministry of Education website. (Note that these are the full health/phys ed curriculum. Sex education requirements are part of the "healthy living" strand in each grade's curriculum.)

The curriculum for Grades 1-8: See pp. 92-95, 106-110, 120-124, 139-144, 155-160, 171-177, 194-201, 214-220 for Healthy Living strands.

The curriculum for Grades 9-12: See pp. 101-108, 120-126, 139-144, 154-160
