The New York Times pondered on social media this week over why parents in New York City would be upset that their young children are subjected to “pornography literacy classes” and “sex-positive education” at two elite private schools.
“Pornography literacy classes are supposed to teach students how to critically assess what they see on the screen. But when a sex-positive educator taught her curriculum at two elite New York City schools recently, some parents were outraged,” posted the newspaper on Twitter.
“The national standards are also used in public schools in New York City, where students in grades 6 through 12 take lessons on sexuality as part of their health education. Parents can opt out of certain aspects of the program,” adds the Times.
