Second grade sex education

By Chrissy Clark, the Daily Caller

A New Jersey public school district’s health curriculum forces second graders to learn about genitals and gender identity, according to the district’s guidelines obtained by a concerned parent organization.

Mahwah Township Public Schools proposed its new health curriculum, which includes teaching second-graders “how gender-role stereotypes may limit behavior,” according to the guidelines obtained by Parents Defending Education. Seven and eight-year-olds must be able to “list medically accurate names for body parts, including the genitals.”

The guidance pushes topics such as “gender identity” in the fifth and eighth grades as well.

Fifth-graders must be able to “differentiate between sexual orientation and gender identity,” according to the updated standards. The school defines “gender identity” for fifth-graders as a “person’s internal, deeply-held knowledge of their own gender.” The definition of “gender identity” expands in eighth grade. Students are told that “gender identity” is “a person’s internal, deeply held knowledge of their own gender, regardless of the gender they were assigned at birth.”
