Las Vegas Kindergarten Sex Ed Class Teaches “Very Private Sexual Activity”

Clark County School District’s sexual education curriculum may soon be changing and local parents are not happy with the changes they’re hearing about. Currently, Clark County schools start their sexual education programs in the 5th grade and focus on just the basics while also promoting abstinence. The changes that the district is considering are found in the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education, but some of those changes are making many local parents very upset.

Some of the suggestions in the document have local parents upset.

“You read through it and you’re appalled by some of the stuff,” said parent Ronald Withaeger.

“I was sick to my stomach. My wife and I read it. We’re sick to think elementary age kids would be exposed to these types of things,” he said.

The document covers nearly every sex education topic imaginable, and its suggestions are intended for students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Topics include healthful dating, marriage, family values, reproduction and much more.

“‘Masturbation should be done in a private place.’ That’s kindergarten through third grade. You’ve got to be kidding me. There’s no need to know that at that age,” Withaeger said.

The county has not decided yet whether they will be implementing all, some or any of the proposed changes from the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education… but the very fact that they are even considering these changes makes one wonder how the school board members got elected in the first place.

Kindergarten is far too soon for public educators to be discussing or describing sexual activity with our children. Sexual education is the job and responsibility of parents – not the schools – especially when the child is 5 years old!
