Sex ED for kids

Chicago is set to introduce a new sex education programme for all schools, including pre-schools. The policy from the Chicago Board of Education makes it mandatory that sex education be given in all grades. The youngest children will learn about anatomy, reproduction, healthy relationships and personal safety. For the first time in Chicago, sex education will also cover sexual orientation and gender identity. It is hoped this will increase awareness, promote tolerance and prevent bullying, said the school board.
