National Sexuality Education Standards

The National Sexuality Education Standards are NOT a part of Common Core.  However, if you take the view that Common Core is a framework to introduce a series of nationalized standards,  then these national sexuality standards should be considered when examining the fundamental transformation of what our children learn at school.

The National Sexuality Education Standards are “A Special Publication of the Journal of School Health,” If you go to page 6 it says, “The National Sexuality Education Standards were further informed by the work of the CDC’s Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT)3; existing state and international education standards that include sexual health content; the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education: Kindergarten – 12th Grade; and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, recently adopted by most states.”  Is this curriculum intended to be incorporated into the English language arts reading assignments?  Unclear…

On page 6, “Specifically, the National Sexuality Education Standards were developed to address the inconsistent implementation of sexuality education nationwide and the limited time allocated to teaching the topic.” The whole idea behind Common Core is to create universal standards.

The Chicago Public schools have already adopted these standards:  See CPS document HERE.

In Illinois, if you do not want your child to participate in the Sexuality education, you may opt your child out.

    I live in Illinois. My son will not be attending school where common core is allowed. I will not have him raised to be as corrupt and as immoral as most of the population of Illinois is currently, nor will I have him taught about sex by strangers. Common core is the worst thing I have ever seen out of any education department ever, and that is from someone who was a teacher for over ten years. It allows kids who are lazy to keep up without doing anything, while allowing children who are gifted to be held back and never reach their potential. Until Illinois gets their heads out of their rear ends and realizes that children who are gifted need to be rewarded, not punished because their peers might be self-conscience about the fact that others are smarter than they are, my children will never attend school here. Life is full of competition and teaching these kids that everyone is equal does not teach them how to deal with competition. What are they going to do when they can’t get a job because they can barely read, while kids who are home-schooled are getting jobs left and right? There is no one to cry to when you are an adult and don’t get your way and its a sad fact that Illinois is promoting the bad behavior as well as immoral behavior through this coddling program called common core.
