Ontario Sex-Ed: What’s Going On & What I Can Do

peace engage imageNo matter where you go in the world, sexual health curriculum is changing.

Under the banner of Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE), sexual health instruction is changing from a focus on reproductive health to a focus on sexual activity.  This approach not only has an effect on the physical health of children and young adults, but on social, cultural, and spiritual values in society.

When it comes to the sex-ed situation in Ontario, P.E.A.C.E. is here to help guide you through the confusion.  The following steps are designed to help you

  • understand the situation
  • know what are the concerns shared by many faith communities, and
  • learn how to effectively respond so that the values of your home are respected and that you become a positive influence at your local school

For more than 20 years P.E.A.C.E. has been advocating for faith parents with children in public education. Our goal is to promote positive communication between parents and schools, and better learning environments for all children.
