My idea of sex-ed for elementary
March 2, 2013 at 8:15 AM
How about this:

Instead of the normal sex-ed where there's usually a powerpoint/lecture type seminar. We make it individual.

No group lecture. No girls class or boys class.
Individual.

Every student fills out an essay type quiz. Writing what they think they know about sex, reproduction, etc.
After the people running the program go through and then correct/inform each student on what they should know.

Obviously there will be an opt out.

    How would you standardize the grading; I mean, if a seven year old wrote an essay on S&M and another seven year old writes, "this is my pee pee." How in the world could you equate the two?

    How would you judge an eight year old that wants to organize a "pervert pride parade" where people could feel free to dress up as vampire to feed their sexual desire and get together with the Furry BDSM marching band, nothing like a guy that dresses up like a rat in leather stockings, playing "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," on the flute for the express public joy of showing pervert pride. With another eight year old girl who thinks that is totally nuts?

    I get your point.

    My question is how in the hell do you come up with your crap ... (I did laugh :/ )

    Once this is completed, what do you do then?  How are the individualized questions handled, the ideas that come from the children?

    Do you tailor the 'truth' to fit the individual or do you actually just go with basic facts?

    Yeah, because the public schools have enough resources to teach kids 1:1 for a class of 25-30 kids.  They sure don't in my town.

    There's sex ed in elementary? Not ours. I think the most important thing when teaching sex ed, is making sure the teacher knows what he/she is talking about. My son had to correct the teacher several times during their health/sex ed course in 7th.

    Realistically, the only people that would love this plan would be lawyers. Can you imagine the number of lawsuits that would result because an adult took an individual child into a special place to talk about individualize sexual education.

    My idea:  teach it at home so primary schools don't feel obligated to teach it.

    How do you get parents to teach their kids? A lot of parents don't. I don't know why, but they don't. Which is why the schools do. It's a public investment to counter ignorance and stupidity.
