Although most parents probably think their five-year-olds are learning the basics like phonics and how to count to 20 in kindergarten, the public school system in Chicago apparently believes ‘the basics’ also include sex education.
According to a local CBS affiliate, a new public school mandate will involve 300 minutes of sexual health education for kindergarteners:

Okay, so, I definitely agree that children should be educated regarding sex...
CPS insists the curriculum will use language children understand and focus on topics like bullying, correct names for external body parts and the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.
Parents are encouraged to review the curriculum. If they’re uncomfortable with any lesson, their child can opt out of that class.
There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children… Parents have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed. - See more at: www.thedailysheeple.com...
Still, Chicago’s sex ed plan sounds slightly more conservative than a universal lesson plan released by the United Nations Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) back in 2009. Apparently the U.N. recommended that even pre-Kindergarteners should learn about masturbation, concepts like “transphobia” should be introduced and kids as young as nine should be taught about legal abortions. UNESCO insisted the plan was “age-appropriate”. - See more at: www.thedailysheeple.com...

This is wrong.....I really just don't know what else to say. This is too close to Huxley's vision in A Brave New World and I am not okay with it.
Kids at that age should be playing with dolls, or gi joe's, not learning about sex ed. Kids should already have the knowledge of what their privates are called, nicknames, that no one should touch them there etc.... They most certainly shouldn't be thinking about each others privates at such a young age. Remember the giggles and whispers from eighth grade? These kids are less than half that age, really is it necessary........hell no!
