Research

The sex-ed subject in Ontario has been a constant debate between the government, teachers, parents, and students. When Doug Ford became Ontario’s Premier, he reverted to the 1998 sex-ed curriculum. With lots of pushback from Canadians, Ford unveiled a new curriculum similar to the old Liberal curriculum introduced by Kathleen Wynne. All young Canadians should learn from a curriculum that is positive and inclusive. Although a new curriculum is in place, many topics are overlooked, introduced later in the primary grades, or not included at all.
