A 13-year-old girl snapped a picture inside her Kansas middle school of a poster on a classroom wall. She showed her dad, who (rightly) became extremely upset by what he saw. The poster asks, "How do people express their sexual feelings?" Some of the answers were:
Touching Each Others Genitals
Oddly, coupled with the graphic answers above were things like:
Saying "I Like You"
Thinking this must be a joke, the father contacted the school and was told that this was part of the approved sex-ed curriculum for the district, and that other schools were using it as well. A school district spokeswoman says the poster is intended to be "abstinence-based" and needs to be viewed in a larger context:
The poster that you reference is actually part of our middle school health and science materials, and so it is a part of our district approved curriculum. However, the item is meant to be part of a lesson, and so certainly as a stand-alone poster without the context of a teacher-led discussion, I could see that there might be some cause for concern.
The father plans on removing his daughter from the class if the curriculum is not changed.
