Radical Sex Education Does Not Belong in Children's Classrooms!


February 16, 2021

Minnesota's students deserve better than "comprehensive" sex education (CSE) in their K-12 classrooms, and yet, there is once again a push to mandate it throughout the state. Representative Sydney Jordan recently introduced H.F. 358, a bill that would require the development and implementation of a CSE curriculum in K-12 schools. The bill is expected to pass the House Education Policy Committee during tomorrow's hearing, though there is a chance it could be tabled.

There isn't one set definition for CSE, but in general, CSE includes information and classroom discussion on gender identity, sexual expression, sex practices, and abortion access. Examples of CSE curriculum which have been proposed or adopted have included programs that begin sex-ed in kindergarten, lessons designed for middle-schoolers involving sexual role-playing, detailed descriptions of sexual acts, and a book called It's Perfectly Normal, with illustrations so explicit that they were censored by Facebook.

While Representative Jordan's bill does not stipulate the exact curriculum that would be used if state-wide mandate for CSE were adopted, It's Perfectly Normal is already being used in a number of MN schools. Furthermore, looking at the radical curriculum that has been adopted and proposed elsewhere in the country, there is good reason to be concerned about the explicit nature of CSE.
