There is way too much focus on Indigenous Issues in schools now. Grade 9 Art classes in some schools have been converted to
teaching ONLY Native art. Is other art not worthy of study anymore?!Canada and World Studies courses seem to be being
converted to Native Studies departments! History should teach how the modern state of Canada was founded (Early settlers).
Indigenous issues should be taught in an objective way! Not a 100% victimization way which is the impression I'm getting!There
needs to be a balance. The pendulum has swung too far!Residential schools seems to be taught at every grade now!

I think that repealing the updated sex ed curriculum was short-sighted and dangerous. Diversity is a reality in Ontario schools and
ANY curriculum that does not acknowledge this is doing our children and families a disservice. Please reinstate the updated sex ed
curriculum and stop wasting time with this farce of a consultation.

It is important to me that my child be taught sex Ed and Health curriculum that is inclusive of LGBTQ2S sexualities and inclusive

I'm concerned that in September my children will be learning curriculum that is 20 years out of date. You can call it the 2014
curriculum all you want, but it was written in 1998. The old HPE curriculum does not address the realities of today's children.I want
my kids to learn about Gender Identity, Tolerance, Acceptance, Respect. Silencing the voices of the LGBTQ students and community
will only cause more harm.I request that my children school be directed to teach the updated 2015 curriculum.

I am very concerned about the outdated 90s sex ed curriculum still being taught in schools. This curriculum does not address the
realities our children face today. I grew up in the 90s and I know it was a very different time. I also know that I am not an expert
on current best practices and research around teaching sexual health, STDs, the internet and many other issues our kids already
deal with every day. I need these issues to be addressed in the classroom using a current well-researched curriculum such as the
one developed in 2015 by the Liberal government. I believe information will prevent our children from being victims and victimizing
each other. I do not believe a small minority of parents who do not agree with the new curriculum should be in control simply
because the PCs won less than 40% of the popular vote. Those parents who object for religious or other reasons have the option to
pull their kids from the classes. Those of us who understand our kids' new reality because we hear about these issues from them
can have their real lives addressed in the classroom as they should be.

I am disappointed and appalled that Premier Ford's government has decided not to implement the new sex-education curriculum.
The new sex-education curriculum was developed over many years with input from all stakeholders and is essential for our children
to safely navigate the challenges facing children today. It provides them the tools they need to address situations of sexual assault
or abuse. In addition, the new curriculum acknowledges and supports the LGBTQ people in our community and helps our children
be comfortable with who they are. Going back to the old curriculum not only makes our children less safe by withholding tools that
help protect them from from sexual predators, but it also excludes people who are an important part of our community. It is a
disservice to our children to allow them to leave school without the tools they need to have safe and fulfilling sexual lives. I strongly
support implementing the new sex-education curriculum, and I hope the Ontario Ministry of Education will put all the time and
money spent on this project to good use by implementing the up-to-date, evidence-based, thoughtful sex-education curriculum
they have prepared.

My concern is that the government wants to send our kids back 20 years in regards to their health education. I want my child
learning a modern health curriculum that includes consent, diversity sexualities, diverse gender identities, diverse families. My
children need to learn about safety on the internet and the dangers that can come with texting and social media. To go back 20
years and teach a curriculum that was written before social media and that includes nothing about gender identities is reckless and
dangerous. We need the current 2015 curriculum taught in schools.

The 2015 Heatth and Physical education curriculum was far overdue and in some cases does not not go far enough due to concerns
of “teaching too much too soon”. If it is rolled back, it puts students at risk for years to come. Teachers deserve a robust evidence
based curriculum, such as the 2015 curriculum.The schools should incorporate more learning about Indigenous peoples at each
level. The consultations would have helped with that.

My concern with the current curriculum is that there is no "current" curriculum. It is my understanding that in just two weeks,
teachers on Ontario will be expected to teach from a outdated curriculum that was first released i 1998--TWENTY years ago. Topics
missing from this archaic document include acceptance, gender bias, social media and the consequences of technology and
information over saturation, and same sex relationships. I am appalled that the Ontario government would bow to pressure from
socially conservative right wing groups and rescind the 2015 curriculum which, despite fear mongering and lies from a handful of
extremists, has garnered widespread praise from most Ontarians, including parents and educators. The fact that teachers unions
and school boards have come forward to condemn this regressive move, the Ontario government blindly moves forward in order to
pander to these right wing special interest groups. When will the curriculum actually be designed to benefit the students it teaches
rather than soothe the far right base of an ill suited Premier of Ontario? Changing this curriculum will be costly, and damaging to
students. I am disgusted that a "conservative" government would make this move, as it is not at all conservative...it is fiscally and
morally reprehensible.

There is not enough being done to ensure the smooth transition for students from high school to college and university. Students
are not prepared adequately enough for the demands that will be placed on them when they reach secondary education - the need
to submit assignments on time and essentially having until the last day of the term or the year, the proper attitudes, the lack of
having your parents involvement, not wanting to fail students, etc. Students think this same approach will be acceptable at college.
And then they have a rude awakening and fail! Imagine that. More needs to be done during the high school years to show them
what it is really like and to prepare them for the 'real world.' .

What is considered the current curriculum? There is no curriculum currently being taught, since it's summer. The Regressive
Conservative government have already said they're rolling back to the 1998 curriculum and won't teach the 2015 curriculum.So,
my problems with the 1998 curriculum are, it's 20 years old and deals with none of the issues that were addressed with the
updated 2015 curriculum---which was extensively consulted on by experts and parents alike. Your government has already made it
clear they're happy to lie about what was said during the campaign (does the Ontario Basic Income Pilot come to mind?). You
should do something decent "for the people" for once and make your claims about repealing the 2015 curriculum a lie as well.

I am concerned that things like sexual consent, healthy relationship (gay and straight), diverse kinds of families, and gender
identity and expression are not being taught in school. These are important issues, and lives are at stake. I would like more
comprehensive material on drug use and associated dangers that respects the reality of teens. More information on online issues
kids face, like bullying, or have access to, like pornography.I would like to see a Indigenous history taught, from the settler and
indigenous perspective. I would like more emphasis on citizenship and social responsibility taught in middle and high school. Teach
empathy at all grade levels.I would like social science and science that is tied to real issues like climate change.I would like to see
practical skills taught, like how to make and fix things, how to garden, build, sew, cook, handle finances. All things practical!

the entire curriculum or only the health portion? I do NOT have concerns with the curriculum that was introduced in 2015. I do
have concerns that the Ontario government is reverting to a curriculum that is 20 years old to appease some ultra conservative
people who want their children to be ignorant. Those people ALWAYS had the opportunity to opt out of the health curriculum if they
did not want their children to attend, now all kids are not allowed to learn about these very important topics. For all those parents
who say "it should be taught at home" well the simple fact is - it is not. My daughter was in class when they were discussing body
parts. When the words penis and vagina were mentioned, the other students erupted into laughter. She couldn't figure out what
was so funny - to her (because we DO teach at home) it was the same as saying "arm". Obviously the other kids were not taught at
home. I was happy that my school board consulted with local religious groups - Christian, Muslim etc - who may have had an issue
and after reading the curriculum they realized that it IS appropriate. They put their support behind the school board. You are
wasting time and money and I notice that they way you have phrased THIS feedback form, you are trying to only obtain NEGATIVE
feedback. Bring back the 2015 curriculum!!!

Sex ed curriculum as created and instituted by the previous governement was age appropriate and the result of much consultation
with knowledgable people. I value the inclusion of education about consent, diverse families, gender diversity and all other sections
included in the new curriculum, and I support continuing to use all parts of the 2015 curriculum in the classroom as it stands. I am
grateful that my son and his peers will learn this vocabulary in the classroom AS WELL AS at home, as a complement to what we
are doing as his parents.

Please continue to teach the sex and health education curriculum that the Liberal government updated in 2015. I have grave
concerns that the curriculum from 1998 will NOT adequately teach children about how to be safe online, gender identity, sexuality,
and tolerance for others. Going back to the 1998 curriculum is unnecessary, and harmful to our kids. It is a political move by the
new premier, who has clearly never read what the curriculum actually teaches, nor does he know what Ontarians want for their
children.

I am deeply concerned that the Government of Ontario is endangering my children as well as putting the safety of others in
jeopardy by revoking the evidence based and heavily consulted 2015 Health curriculum. This ideological move ignores evidence and
is meant to pander to social extremists rather than create a safe environment for all of Ontario's children.The Premier says he will
not tolerate anyone using Ontario's children as pawns in political games. That is exactly what he and the minister of education are
doing. If they had a shred of decency they would change course and support the 2015 curriculum, and then resign for putting our
children at risk.Simply put: turning back the clock to the 1990s is a dangerous move. It is based in harmful ideology. Ontario can
be better than the hateful misinformation spread by the premier and minister.

I want my child and all of his peers to so wholly understand consent that rape just doesn’t happen. I want inclusivity for every
single person, because WTF. I want my child to make healthy, informed decisions about sex with a consenting partner who is also
healthy and informed. I want my child to be safe online and to understand what online bullying and luring are and how to avoid
these things. ALL OF THIS should be taught within a curriculum that is created by experts, not by aging parents who grew up in a

children on human rights and technological risks, and all the other inclusions in the 2015 Health & Physical Education curriculum.
There has already been enough money spent on consultation and implementation; further expense regarding this is a terrible

Please! Teach the new sex ed curriculum. Children need to know about consent. Both boys and girls need to learn how to respect
ALL people and relationships regardless or gender, race religion, etc. And that it is ok to be different. These children are our future.
What they learn now ie respect and acceptance, will help change the world for the better. we will ALL benefit from that. To go back
to old curriculum (who I'm afraid is preferred by homophobic, intolerant people) and others who feel for example that women do
not have the right to decide what to do with their own body) is a massive step backward. It is hard enought to be a child/teen is
today's society. We are responsible as parents and teachers to help give them the tools they need to grow up healthy, happy and a
good WORLD citizen. All humans deserve the right to be recognized as valid, important and worthy regardless of their differences.
Please help our children learn that. Sadly, not all children will learn that at home..

I have concerns with the current curriculum as there was nothing wrong with the newly implemented curriculum- it was well
researched, had relevant up-to-date content and was aimed at keeping my child informed and safe.There is a major focus on calling
it sex Ed, but it’s just actually physical health! Get over yourselves! It’s called a vagina, penis, rectum, anus. These are anatomical
words that our kids should know. They should also know about consent, diverse relationships, gender identity etc etc etc. What will
this information do but give them more power? I will continue to teach my children at home and continue to fight that this be
taught in my child’s education curriculum

I am concerned that the current government has repealed the sex ed curriculum. While my children are just starting their post
secondary education, if they had not been taught at school about definitions of online issue, consent/sexual assault or respect for
LGBT rights I do not think that they would be prepared for the world in which they live. As we have come to understand the degree
of sexual assault and sexual harassment that girls and women experience, it defies belief that we do not want to give them the
tools to protect themselves. Similarly, while I appreciate that all Ontarians do not support LGBTQ rights, the fact is they are legal
rights protected not only in the Human Rights Code but also, and more importantly in the Constitution. Regardless of your
views,there are LGBTQ children and youth in school and because of bullying and other factors they disproportionately commit
suicide in their young years. Again, the schools have a moral obligation to give these students the tools that will protect their lives

I am a teacher. I am concerned about the curriculum, namely returning to the 1998 HPE curriculum. The curriculum is out of date,
having been written before same-sex marriage, Google, sexting or cyberbullying. Moreover, I am concerned that, as a professional
who will be teaching in two weeks, there is no new curriculum to teach. Traditionally, curricula is published one year before
implementation. The fact that this was implemented in the summer and the 1998 curriculum is not even available online is, quite
frankly, irresponsible. The 2015 curriculum included feedback from a variety of stakeholders, from parents, to teachers, to students
to other NGOs and public health groups. It has gained praise from all over the world, including the WHO. So, my concern is that
instead of preparing student for the future, we are setting students back a generation.

This website is unclear (as is your government) about just *what* the "current" curriculum will be in my child's school starting this
September. However, if you're asking me whether I have concerns about the 2015 health curriculum, I will say unequivocally that I
do not: despite what alarmists would like to believe, it is age-appropriate, current, and relevant, as well as evidence-based, fully
researched, and supported by health professionals and educators. Its development involved parental consultation. The 1998
curriculum is outdated and inadequate. To slide backward does a disservice to our children and our society, and to put money into
doing so is a waste.

First, the "Share your concerns about the current curriculum" page that led me to this form is so vague. Which part of the school
curriculum do you mean, exactly? Are you hiding behind language that hopefully will mean people won't know you're asking for
feedback specifically on the sexual health portion of the Health and Physical Education curriculum?Generally, I have been happy
with the curriculum taught at my daughter's school. I wish that there was still an emphasis on teaching children to spell, to
memorize math facts once they have the basic strategies in place, and to learn cursive writing. . Missing out on these kinds of
important learning opportunities and not being able to connect with important moments in history isn't acceptable.The biggest
concern I have right now is with the recent decision of the Conservative government to roll back the sexual health portion of the
Health and Physical Education curriculum. I have previously written to both Mr. Ford's office (for which I received no response) as
well as my local MPP (from whom I received a prompt and personalized response) to express these concerns.It is critical to teach
children openly and honestly about sexual health and the social issues related to it. I believe strongly that the 2015 curriculum
should be reinstated immediately. Shame on anyone working to block this important education from our province's children.Yes-
based consent will only begin to happen when we teach people how to do it, why it's important, and that it is expected in all sexual
relationships.Pornography must be discussed. Studies show that the average 10 year old has been exposed to it, often through
accidental web search results the first time and then through natural curiosity after that. Talking about what porn is, the dangers
related to watching it or relying on it solely as stimulation for masturbation, and other related issues is critical to sexual
empowerment.The impacts of sexting and sending nude photos must be discussed as early as possible. Studies show that girls as
young as 12 are being solicited for this kind of thing. Boys don't know it is wrong to ask and pressure each other into it. Girls don't
know it's wrong to do it and are sending them to fit in. Often with life-altering consequences. Teaching everyone in a class at the
same time levels the playing field and gives everyone the chance to not just change their own behavior but also call each other
out.Talking about gender, gender fluidity, and the gender spectrum is critical not just for students who identify outside of traditional
norms but also for their peers to understand that these differences are acceptable.Being inclusive of different kinds of relationships
other than heterosexual ones is critical for the mental health of students who are not heterosexual - to know that what they might
be feeling inside is normal and to be as equipped by school for safe, healthy and pleasurable sexual relationships as their
heterosexual counterparts are. For students who are heterosexual, having these conversations and normalizing these differences is
critical for their good participation in society.The 2015 curriculum was put together with input from educators, mental health and
sexual health professionals, parents, and a whole host of folks who needed to be involved. It was an important move in education
in Ontario and I am incredibly disgusted that the decision was made to roll back to a curriculum that was established a decade
before my daughter was even born. Stop wasting tax payer dollars on this nonsense, bring back the curriculum from 2015 and
move on towards more important issues.

The 2015 health curriculum went through multiple rounds of consultation with thousands of parents, educators, health professionals
and so forth. Due diligence has already been applied and the result is a modern health curriculum that addresses the needs of our
children in this day and age. It is a 21st century, fair, balanced, well researched and age appropriate health curriculum. If a person
withholds their child from health class because of their beliefs, that is their choice. However, those personal choices do not override
the rights of our daughter and the vast majority of children in this province to a health education that is appropriate for this day
and age. I suggest that you listen to voices of educators, who are urging you to keep the 2015 health curriculum in place while your
consultations take place. I encourage the Durham District School Board to continue with the 2015 curriculum in spite of Doug Ford's
ideological waste of taxpayer dollars to reinvent the wheel.

Our math curriculum needs to be updated and pushed forward. Students in grades 1-8 learn very few math concepts compared in
high school, where in grade 9 math slams them in the face. Math should be taught and mistakes should happen in the elementary

consent, how to care for yourself physically and emotionally. It also introduces issues that are prevalent in our society. Knowledge
is power and we need to do more to promote health and encourage young people to make good life decisions based on
understanding that is from reputable sources. I do not support the removal of the current curriculum and I feel the old curriculum
does not address the issues of young people in 2018. Times change, lets not go back into the stone age.

What our children NEED is to have easily accessible, safe and open education on issues of consent, LGTBQ issues, bodily autonomy,
and how to navigate sexual relationships in a digital age. My CONCERN is that the Conservative government is wasting taxpayer
money by returning to the outdated 1998 curriculum rather than taking the time to actually read the new curriculum, a curriculum
that was vetted by experts, parents, and educators.I will not be snitching on (and yes, this is a forum for snitching, no matter how
your government spins it) ANY of my children’s teachers who choose to uphold and continue to teach from the updated curriculum,
and in fact will actively solicit their agreement to do so and protest any disciplinary measures they receive as a consequence for
doing so. Teachers MUST have the ability to uphold a safe and inclusive space for their students, which necessitates the inclusion of
up to date material from the 2015 curriculum.

As a parent of African Descent I am very concerned and outraged that SCDSB has yet to roll out any meaningful anti racism and
anti Black racism training or resources for staff on educating racialized children, particularly children of African Descent. Staff are
not equipped to educate or emotionally support my children when they are in their care. .....what else is happening during the day?
How often is my child and other racialized children being denigrated, treated as less than and ignored by staff and a curriculum that
renders them invisible and not as important. How can an education system educate children using a curriculum that does not
represent anything positive about their present or past? How are they supposed to thrive and be grest tudents when they are
taught daily that they are not worthy or valuable. The challenges with the curriculum is not just the health and physical education
components it's also the fact that it stills uphold a eurocentric lens and perspective of the world. It renders Indigenous racialized,
and non catholics invisible. If you are exerting all this time and money on reviewing the curriculum then ensure that you do so from
an inclusive lens. Doing so will not just work for some children it will work for all children!

The Sex Ed curriculum the Ontario PC government cancelled had input from hundreds of parents and experts. Lying to The People
you claim to represent and saying that no one was consulted doesn't make it any more true. People can die from the decision you
made to exclude bullying, gender discrimination, and the evolution of online social media. If even one person dies from your
changes you should all step down.

I am concerned that the new 2015 curriculum will be scrapped in favour of an outdated curriculum. The 2015 curriculum included
important information for modern children, such as LGBTQ health, online safety, and teaching inclusivity. These additions are
important to the health and safety of ALL of Ontario's children, and any amendments to the curriculum under the new gov't should
seek to preserve these necessary additions to sex ed. I do not want my child to have gaps in her education because of a gov't that
wants to take us back to the stone age.

First off, your request for feedback is inherently biased because you’re asking for what’s being “currently taught”, which pre-
supposes you’re only accepting comments about concerns of the current (updated) curriculum is. I have concerns about repealing
the updated 2015 curriculum. I have two children and I feel not teaching children concepts around cyber safety and consent - even
for this one year - is inherently dangerous. My children use the Internet regularly and while I use a smart router and continually
check on their internet usage, I still believe there’s room for educators to provide supplemental guidance. I never grew up with the
Internet when I was in school and so I don’t feel as well equipped to teach my children about internet safety as educational experts
are. As well, your announcement to repeal the updated curriculum -which deals with consent - comes on the heels of several
decades of covered up sexual abuse by people in authority. Children should be taught this concept in order to protect themselves
from being taken advantage of.

children at risk. It is not based on any evidence but politically motivated and should be stopped immediately. I also do not support

I am concerned that the government is reverting back to an outdated health curriculum that will leave today's children unprepared
for the current realities they face, including cyber bullying, sexting, etc. I am concerned that they will not be learning about diverse
families in early grades and gender expression and sexual orientation in the older grades. I am concerned that boys and girls will
not be taught about consent, a discussion that should begin even in the early grades. These are all realities of 2018 that MUST be
taught to our children. I have read the 2015 health curriculum and I find it to be acceptable, perhaps requiring only minor tweaks. I
would urge the government to maintain this curriculum to keep our children safe while the review and revisions are occurring.
Lastly I believe the current math curriculum should be reviewed to address poor math scores across the province.

I have serious concerns about the 1998 curriculum being taught again. I feel it’s important for health education to include
discussions about diversity in gender identity and sexuality, and discussions about risks and benefits associated with sexual activity.
It is also important to me that topics like consent, social media, and sexting are covered. While I believe that morals and values
regarding sexuality should be taught at home, most parents (myself included) do not have the knowledge and skills required to deal
with topics all the topics mentioned above, particularly those we’ve never personally experienced. Furthermore, health education,
including sex education, is a matter of public health - relying on parents to fill the gaps in the current (1998) curriculum puts all of
our youth at risk.

I'm incredibly concerned that the Ontario government has ceased teaching consent in the era of cell phones, the internet, and

old-boy rape myths from their families and may violate them either out of ignorance or by design. Further, the PC's close-minded
reactionary attitudes towards LGBT-inclusive materials are grossly outdated - LGBT children need to hear messages that there's
nothing wrong with them before they've internalized hatred, possibly to the point of suicide, and others need to learn that message
before they're hit with discriminatory lawsuits.

The sexual education curriculum from 2015 is the most up to date and appropriate curriculum to be teaching children. To eliminate
or remove it and replace it with an out dated curriculum from twenty years ago will set our children up for potential harm. I have
two young children in elementary school currently and both are growing up in a vastly different world than when I was a teenager.
There are a plethora of different issues and matters that they must learn about in a safe and trusting environment beyond the
home. No matter what some voters may say, the world is rapidly changing and so is sexual education, we cannot take a large step
backwards as it will have negative ramifications for years to come.Indigenous curriculum; why would this be eliminated? This
province has been inhabited by Indigenous people for over 10,000 years. To ignore that history, culture and influence on our
modern society is a slap in the face to all of us. To deny the history, the injustice, and the suffering of a people we share a home
with will lead to pure and simple ignorance and more anger. Why would the Ontario government support the perpetuation of more
ignorance? These are all subjects, while difficult to swallow, must be taught to our children so we can continue moving forward with
healing as a nation and province.Don't roll back the progress that's been made, you'll do more harm than good.

Rolling back the curriculum for sex education is an absolute disgrace. Perspectives on sexual health and identity has absolutely
changed from 20 years ago, especially in the areas of being open on discussion about ones identity. This current change will not
support students going through the Ontario education system in understanding those complexities of sexual identity, of sexual
consent, of sexual health and for the support of those who may be victimized due to their gender orientation or as a victim of
sexual assault. Rolling back the sexual education curriculum to essentially what was used 20 years ago is an abhorrent move by the
Ontario government and is not something that I support. Ontario needs to demonstrate to its citizens that it supports EVERYONE no
matter their gender or sexual identity. Ontario needs to demonstrate that it is forward thinking - and this move backward is in no
way forward thinking. Change it back! In this political climate from our neighbours to the south, I would have thought that Ontario
would have done everything in its capacity to improve rights for its citizens and support the continued development of
understandings in all areas to further develop healthy communities. It was so incredibly disappointing to me and so many others on
the announcement of the plan for a completely inept sexual health education that has no place in this current society and no
meaningful place in the current education system unless your goal is to actually perpetuate negative stereotypes and
misunderstandings around sexual health and gender identity.

This website is unclear (as is your government) about just *what* the "current" curriculum will be in my child's school starting this

do not: despite what alarmists would like to believe, it is age-appropriate, current, and relevant, as well as evidence-based, fully
researched, and supported by health professionals and educators. Its development involved parental consultation. The 1998
curriculum is outdated and inadequate. To slide backward does a disservice to our children and our society, and to put money into

I am gravely concerned about the province's directive to resort to an outdated sex-ed curriculum. Not only does the old curriculum
have nothing to say about matters that are urgently important for the safety of today's young people - social media, for example -
it fails to provide kids with basic biological information in a timely fashion. For instance, the old curriculum didn't address
menstruation until grade 5 - a point when up to half of girls have *already* had their first period. Girls and boys alike need to
understand puberty in advance - not just after the fact. This curriculum was inadequate even 30 years ago, when I myself was in
school. It's only gotten more out of date in the interim. Fact-based sex education keeps kids safe! Sticking to an outdated
curriculum puts kids in harm's way.

3rd of 3 submissions due to 1000 character count.I'm distressed that secondary teachers are expected to have a subjectexpertise
but that primary teachers are "generalists". I'm confidentthat all of our primary teachers are comfortable reading and writingand
would never communicate in any way (conscious or unconscious) thatthey're "bad at reading" or "don't enjoy reading". But when it
comesto math and the sciences, there are primary teachers who don't enjoythese subjects and it affects how they teach. By the
time studentsget to secondary school, the damage is done (at least when it comes tomath).I'd be interested in seeing Ontario's
math & science teacher trainingmove in the direction of (what I understand of) Quebec's model inwhich teachers have regular
content-based freshening-ups and studentsare taught both discovery-based math/science at the same time ashaving a solid
foundation of basic skills taught with a touch ofdrilling (as needed).

TRANSPARENCY REQUESTED ON TEACHER ABSENTEEISM RATES I only know this because my son would tell me that these
teachers were absent a lot, and I started keeping track of them myself, asking him each day if these particular teachers had been
in or not that day. I have no idea of the absenteeism rate of his other teachers - the school management tells me they will not /
cannot release this data. The reasons for the absences are various - illness, school outings, family leave, staff meetings,
bereavement, school trips overseas, sports, administrative secondments The school principal told me “don’t worry, supply teachers
are qualified and provide the same level of education”. I think we can all agree, based on our own experience in high school, that
this is not the case. Supply teachers have no understanding of the class dynamics, invariably cannot impose discipline very
effectively – and if used repeatedly, result in a lack of teaching continuity – critical for many students struggling to follow the
program. I don’t care why a teacher is absent. But I do think that it’s important to me, as a parent, to have a good idea on the
absentee rate of my child’s teachers. If my child is showing no motivation for his math class, I’d like to know if this is because he’s
having difficulties understanding, if he’s bored, or if, due to frequent teacher absences, there is no continuity nor any discipline in
the classroom. Without that information, as a parent, I don’t have all the necessary information to understand the situation and do
what I can to help. I believe it is important that teacher absentee rates not be hidden from parents, who are, after all, the clients
being served by the school boards to which they pay taxes. I believe that report cards, which typically include the absentee rate of
students, also include the absentee rate of their teachers. If my son has a poor mark in math, and I see that his teacher was absent
for 40% of the classes, it will help me understand that the problem may lie not entirely with my son.

identity, and to learn respect for themselves and others at age appropriate stages.I would love to be part of a wider consultation.

Hi.Thanks for setting up this portal for parents to express their concerns. I have a big one about the change in sex education and
health education. My son went through the program in grade 9 last year. It was excellent. It taught him about cannabis and other
drugs, the nasty effects of drug use on each part of the body and supplied him with actual scripts to use in turning down drug use.
It also did a wonderful job of discouraging teenage sex thanks to the detailed descriptions of STDs. Scripts were also taught to help
teens avoid being pressured into sex. We will be using our older son's health class notes from last year to educate our younger son
as he obviously won't be getting that important, information in his class any time soon, if at all. This change was not the will of the
people. "We will not tolerate anybody using our children as pawns for grandstanding and political games." Will that be applied to
our elected officials as well?

I am concerned that my children will no longer be taught about inclusivity. That by following through with repealing the current
education program my children and many others will be in danger to losing touch with the modern world and how modern concepts
of sex and gender can be reflected in our communities. I am concerned that my children will learn answers to questions they dont
want to ask me from the internet, not a trusted advisor with a curriculum to follow and modern up-to-date information that the
ontario education board was just getting around to implementing. I am concerned that without inclusive and modern education our
children will be unsafe.

Unlike what has reported, I think parents DO want a curriculum that includes things like cyber bullying. HOWEVER... the previous
government was irresponsibly teaching gender theories (the unicorn etc) that are ideologically based, and have no basis in science.
This was an attempt to brainwash children and it is an affront on the idea of the family being a man and a woman with norman
sexual tendencies. While it is true that homosexuality exists, it does not need to be pushed on the kids as part of a larger unhealthy
social agenda that is anti-family. There is too much leftist activism animating teachers to get ahead of their skis and that is what
has to stop.

The current health curriculum from 2015 is what our students need in today’s society. Going back to the 1998 curriculum is
dangerous for my students. The ridiculous part is that we didn’t let the 2015 curriculum run its course long enough to see any
improvements. Ironic that you don’t want people using students as pawns when you infact are doing exactly that.

I am surprised and disappointed that the Ford government has rescinded the very well researched and vetted physical and health
education curriculum, and even more disappointed that updating the curriculum on history of mistreatment of the Indigenous
peoples of Canada has been side-lined. Deplorable decisions that need to be reversed! Before any more destructive decisions are
made the decision makers should be familiarized with all the research on these topics that have and are being incorporated in the

I have three children at different stages in their education at the TDSB (Grade 4, Grade 8, Grade 10). Overall, I feel strongly that
the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum is strong. I am particularly proud of the 2014 revised Health Curriculum and the
Ministry's movement towards including Truth and Reconciliation and Canadian First Nation education throughout the Social Studies
curriculum in particular. I strongly support the 2014 Health curriculum with its focus on respect for others, human rights, consent,
the changing family, social media, socio-emotional issues, mental health, and sexual health. I also applaud Ontario's efforts to
educate our children about Canada's treaties, residential schools, and all issues surrounding Truth and Reconciliation. I was deeply
upset to learn that Doug Ford has interfered in both of these areas and derailed implementation and further curriculum
development. I do feel that there is a lack of consistency across teachers and schools to truly understand and implement best
practice in assessment. Too many TDSB teachers across the grades are still focusing their assessments on knowledge and content
by asking my children to regurgitate facts onto tests and assignments that can be Googled. I want my children to be able to think
well, ask good questions, problem solve, have a growth mindset, take risks, have courage, be resilient, understand concepts
deeply, and be able to apply their learning to new situations. Generally, our teachers are not well equipped to foster these
attributes. Throughout my children's education, there has been little opportunity for them to be creative, explore their own interests
within the curriculum, and to have their curiosity nurtured. Most of the time, they are learning in a teacher-centered environment
where they are simply jumping through hoops placed by the teacher. Therefore, it is not the curriculum that I have an issue with
but rather how the curriculum is being implemented. I believe that the role of excellent teachers today is to pose good questions, to
guide the learning process, and to create inviting learning environments that motivate, engage, and stimulate curiosity. Our overall
goal should be to develop, within each student, an intrinsically motivated love of learning and a belief in themselves as a learners.
As said by Tony Wagner, who is a fellow at the Harvard Innovation Lab, "There is no competitive advantage today in knowing more
than the person next to you. The world doesn't care what you know. What the world cares about is what you can do with what you
know." I feel that Ontario is years behind in providing a more inquiry-based approach to learning that integrates subjects
authentically, while building strong communication skills. As student's enter the high school years, the situation becomes much
more dire with students learning the same way I did in Ontario 30 years ago - reading and regurgitating from a textbook! My oldest
child's highschool experience to date has been all about memorization of information across the academic subjects. This is simply
not good enough in 2018 and beyond when our digital and global world expects a much richer, innovative, and diverse skill set. I
would like to see Ontario look to other countries such as Sweden and Denmark, who have embraced a successful and more
progressive approach to education. School can be, and should be, both rigorous and joyful. Ontario, you have a long way to go.
Time to get moving. Our kids cant wait. Start by substantially increasing professional development opportunities for teachers,
particularly in areas such as Harvard's Project Zero, Reggio Emilia, Jo Boaler and Marion Small's approach to teaching Mathematics,
Lucy Calkins approach to teaching reading and writing, and our own CAFLN group to help teacher's with assessment. It is always
shocking to me when our teachers have not even heard of these mainstream experts. Bottomline - our kids deserve teachers who
have excellent training in teaching and learning. Very little will change until more of Ontario's funds are spent helping our teachers
to grow and develop. Ontario's curriculum is great. Let's stop fussing about the curriculum content and get moving on how to teach
the curriculum with 21st century excellence!

This question is badly worded to begin with as there is no 'currently' taught curriculum.However, IF you are referring to the
curriculum that was first created in 1998 and is now hopelessly and completely out of date, then yes my CONCERN is that the Ford
government will be forcing teachers to teach that garbage curriculum starting in Sept. My CONCERN is that you will not allow
teachers to talk about modern, incredibly important issues such as proper anatomical names for body parts, consent, cyberbullying,
consent (yes, this again!), different forms of families, non-heteronormative representation, i.e., things that children SHOULD know
to be educated, compassionate citizens in this world.My CONCERN is that the Ford government is being willfully regressive and
pandering to an overly conservative base without actually thinking about what children should be taught so they can be informed
about their bodies and their sexuality.

been saved over a decade of turmoil and self-consciousness if I had been taught the 2015 update. Please reconsider your actions.

The very question posed by this survey is biased: my problem is with the PC party's repeal of the 2015 curriculum, which is well-
researched and is the result of thousands of consultations. I entirely oppose the PC party's reversion to the outdated and dangerous
curriculum from the 1990s. The repeal of the 2015 curriculum stems from a way of thinking that is anti-science, anti-research, and
will set back the social progress made for LGBTQ children and those who do not fit into outdated and frankly bigoted norms that
preceded it. I sincerely hope every PC party member who has children in the "new old" system meet the sex and gender
expectations of their parents, because goodness help them if they fall outside the rubric.

You seem to be confused. There is no 2014 curriculum, only a curriculum from 1998. I am concerned that denying children
education about boundaries and accurate names for their body parts, as you are insisting teachers do or risk so far undefined

I have a number of issues with how our educational system has evolved over time (the emphasis on memorization instead of
problem solving, the lack of teaching of basic literacy skills like spelling and grammar, the ridiculous requirement to "go beyond
expectations", etc) but this is not the proper format to collect meaningful and informed commentary.This survey is frankly an
embarrassment. The very language of the page is so clearly biasing. How can you have a balanced consultation where the only
thing that is requested is complaints about the status quo? What you've created, is nothing more than a complaint box.If I'm being
honest, my largest concern with our educational system is the potential damage that will be caused if you revert the sex education
changes to the curriculum. Times change, and we as a society must move forward with those changes. Attempting to hide our
children under a rock of naivety and shield them from better understanding the world around them is pure lunacy. In what world, is
providing less information about a potentially life altering subject an appropriate action of an educational institution. And don't tell
me these are conversations that should take place between parent and child. Parents are the last people that a child wants to talk
to when the subject matter is sex. In short:* A focus on problem solving (see Scandinavia) has been shown to be a far more
effective style of learning. There is much we can adopt from them. * This survey is a dumpster fire and a clear attempt at
generating self-selecting results; you should be ashamed.

I am deeply concerned about the intended abandonment of the recently implemented health and sexual education curriculum and
reversion to the previous curriculum. The new program covers many essential topics that the older one simply overlooked (gender
identity, sexual orientation, bodily autonomy and consent), as well as issues that have emerged due to technological advances
since the 1990s (cyber-bullying, sexting, misuse/coercion of explicit images etc.). As a parent of two; I support modern, evidence-
based health information being taught to my children and their classmates in a coordinated and age-targeted manner.I am also
deeply concerned that so close to the beginning of the school year, teachers have been instructed to teach the previous program
but reportedly have received no material support to do so. Preparation for any change is clearly lacking.

I think the change in the sex ed curriculum is dangerous, children are just figuring themselves out and having information given to
them at this age is crucial. Children should be taught decent human respect and that their peers are completely normal and valid
humans. Gender identity and consent should be taught in schools.

Good day,I'm very concerned about the outdated sex and health curriculum the government has instructed teachers use in this
upcoming year. I want the updated curriculum from 2015 to be taught which includes updated and age appropriate information
about LGBTQ people and familes, as well as critical information about consent and cyber and social media issues. I will be teaching
my daughter, but I expect our teachers to be armed with the most up-to-date and relevant information that reflects the current
landscape with so many advancements in technology and social media. It's disgraceful that the government has opted to waste
time, resources and taxpayer money to pander to religious types and put children at risk. I hope that within the next 2 weeks, the
government makes the right decision and moves forward with the 2015 curriculum.

I would like to express concern about the “current” (I.e. 1998) curriculum that, per our provincial government, will be taught in the
2018-2019 school year. As the parent I have already had to start conversations about consent, bodily autonomy, body changes,
bullying, internet safety, sexuality and gender identity with my son, based on what he’s observed in the world around him.
Curriculum lacking comprehensive coverage of these topics would be as negligent as teaching math without multiplication or
physics without gravity. It would be actively harmful.

I’m concerned that we are reverting to a health curriculum that is over 20 years old. I want a modern, comprehensive sex-ed in my
children and grandchildren’s curriculum. Children need to learn about their bodies, consent, diverse kinds of families, diverse sexual
orientations, and gender identity, at age appropriate stages. I am also concerned that by reverting to the old curriculum we are
putting LGBQT + children in danger. I am concerned about the resources we will be using to “justify” this travesty at the human
rights commission. I am appalled that the current government is pandering to fundamentalist groups and that even the wording of
this curriculum feedback form (“share your concerns”) suggests you are only looking for feedback from those who are against a
modern, unbiased curriculum. I understand that the Upper Grand District School Board has committed to continue with the current,
modern curriculum and have grave concerns that we now have a two-tiered curricula where the schools and school boards with
children that need access to this information the most, won’t have it. I am concerned we have to live with this government and this
way of shamelessly “consulting” with parents rather than trusting in the professionals and using evidence-based policy and program
development to form decision making for the next four years.

My concern is that we are walking back on the research and consultation process that developed a well-thought out and vital sex-ed
curriculum which taught concepts necessary to prevent child abuse and exploitation as well as to help kids make healthy choices for
their bodies before they are put into situations where they need the information. My kids are entering and I support them learning
about gender diversity, the spectrum of sexual orientations, consent, biology, basic respect, healthy relationships and so many
concepts that empower them to make healthy, smart and safe decisions for themselves. I do not support bringing 20 year old
curriculum taught when so much vital information is missing.

Liberal Gov’t did correctly and you took it away. I want my child as educated as possible on all sexual matters by responsible
adults. Taking away the 2015 curriculum will take our children back to the days where many children learn about sexual health

consent, sexual health, sexual abuse, relationship skills, pleasure, the spectrum of sexual orientation, and the multifaceted nature

I think the current (90s -2014) curriculum is absolutely outdated and for not teach accurate sex education in a modern world.
Children need to know about consent and sex education that is taught at age appropriate levels. As a person who was taught the
old curriculum in school, and as a person who has had many friends assaulted by others who didn’t know about consent, it is so
important that children are taught these things. It sounds good that it should be “up to the parents” to teach these things but
unfortunately many parents do not teach their children proper values in order to become functioning adults.

I have no concerns over the curriculum that is taught at my child's school. Our teachers and support staff are excellent. Curriculum
is not the most pressing issue in most elementary schools. Children can't learn if they are hungry. When they have little or no
support at home.. . When they are angry.. .When they are forced to be in a regular classroom that is not meeting their needs.
Other children can't learn when there are a number of children in their classroom that are in mental distress. Regular evacuations
and lockdowns are not the answer. Our school's need more support for children with special needs.

The 2015 physical and health education curriculum was designed and written by experts in child development, internet safety,
police, and social workers, in consultation with roughly 4,000 parents.It emphasizes much-needed lessons of consent, acceptance
for others and sexual health. In the age of Me Too, we can’t afford to stop teaching kids about consent and acceptance. Youth
deserve scientific facts and unbiased information when it comes to their health. It’s simple: society will suffer if we don’t educate
children in these topics.Opponents of the curriculum make up a small but vocal minority, come from the far-right and helped get
Ford elected. But despite what they argue, evidence from the UN shows that access to comprehensive sex-ed does not increase
sexual activity. It leads to well-informed decisions and reduces the risk of harmful sexual behaviour.The existing curriculum goes
far beyond providing age-appropriate information about sexual and reproductive health. It teaches personal safety, healthy
relationships based on mutual respect and consent, and is inclusive of all children and youth who call Ontario home.

I am extremely concerned about the curriculum being reverted to the 1998 version. The 2015 curriculum was excellent and well
written to reflect what students need to know in today’s world. Thankfully I will still teach my child consent, acceptance etc, but I

LEAVE THE CURRICULUM ALONE!!! Nobody wants their children learning from an antiquated perspective created in the 90's. By
excluding important topics like LGBTQ, gender identity, sexuality, consent, bullying, social media and more, you negate the
experiences that so many children are currently living in their own lives - themselves or within their own families. You invalidate
them as humans and teach others that they are not important or wrong - children like mine.SHAME. ON. YOU. ALL.

I am the mother of two children. It is vital to the health and well-being of my children that our family and families like ours are
reflected by the health curriculum. My son has already been exposed to a teacher who was arrested for sexual interference with a
minor. The affected student reported the incident immediately because she had the vocabulary and the understanding that what
happened to her was not okay. It is absolutely crucial that we continue to teach our children about their bodies and consent (as
reflected in the 2015 Health curriculum) for their safety. I strongly urge you to reinstate the 2015 Health curriculum for the health

I am in favour of what was to be the new curriculum for sex education in the classroom not what you are proposing to scrap and

all be a part of the curriculum in order to better serve our children as they mature and grow into young women and men. Failure to
educate our youth will see a rise in risky sexual behaviour, unplanned pregnancies and bullying. We can't allow intolerance and
prejudice to grow because we are afraid of talking about these facts of life. Schools are the front line and our best bet in educating

less adequate curriculum. It is irresponsible to go back to a 1998 lesson plan, as it does not even begin to relate to children's

good enough). So, thank you to the brave teachers who continue to put their students wellbeing first. I am proud of the work that

I strongly DISAGREE with the "Government for the People"'s decision to revoke the legislation enacted by the previous provincial
government in terms of PUBLIC education for youth which included addressing gender diversity and same-sex parenting, sexting
and bullying, among other issues about sexuality that affect youth today. We need to teach our youth "how to be in the world" -
and by shielding them from existing realities due to the agendas of conservative and narrow-minded prudes, we are leaving them
ill-equipped to cope in today's society, as well as discouraging diversity.Teaching about these realities is extremely important in
rural and remote areas, where there is limited diversity due to smaller populations - avoiding these topics will leave students not
only vulnerable to attacks, bullying and harm due to potential ignorance, but prone to perpetuating stereotypes and attitudes of
intolerance. Not all parents engage in necessary open conversation with their children, which is why it is so important for a PUBLIC
education system to empower youth by having professional educators equip them with knowledge about today's realities.
Purposeful avoidance does not equal ignorant bliss. Netflix and YouTube aren't good teachers either, although that's where kids will
turn to - and to other explicit online content - for answers in a void; this will not teach about responsibility and respect, let alone
love. Let us breed love and not intolerance. Let us empower and not shame. Let us publicly educate our children about the way the
world really is - not some post-Boomer old-school "idealistic" proxy based on rigid values of yesteryear.

I am very concerned about out of date curriculum being taught in my children’s classrooms. The 2014 health curriculum your
government refers to was written in 1998, before google, sexting, cyber bullying, legalized same sex marriage. It did not touch on
consent or gender issues. It is irresponsible to revert to this old curriculum and a huge waste of taxpayer resources as we a lready
have a perfectly good updated curriculum, which was created with experts and public consultation. Parents are not education
experts, they do not and should not write curriculum. A few parents that wish to keep their children in the dark should not be able
to dictate what the province teaches. The children of those parents are the ones that need this factual information most. The
majority of parents in this province want evidence-based, responsible, up to date health education. NOT the 1998 curriculum (there
is no 2014 curriculum, please stop misleading the public!)

Child should not be taught what homosexuality is, or what transgender is, until grade 8 or 9, when they are at the age of puberty
and beginning to have sexual desires and may wonder why they feel certains ways. An 8 year old should be coming home asking
their parents to explain what transgender is, because they couldn’t understand what the teacher said. Because an 8 year old is too
young to be able to understand when they are going through the messy phase of puberty.

Former student, graduated in 2012.Sexting was becoming a huge issue when I was in high school, one that I imagine has only
grown since I've graduated. Back in 2012, there was nothing taught to address this, as well the issue of consent. It would concern
me if the curriculum does not keep up with today's technological problems, which will leave our youth behind in direction on how to
handle a situation when someone asks them to send naked photos of themselves.This is a serious issue as in today's world
anything that is shared or placed on the internet is likely permanent. We need to educate students on the lasting consequences of
sharing private images, as well as how to say no when approached by this.

I am more than pleased with the existing 2015 sexual education curriculum. It reflects that realities of the world that my daughter
lives in. Do not revert to a 1998 sub standard sexual education none sense.Teachers should be free to teach about same sex
marriage and gender identity. Both of matters are rights guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Some children have
same sex parents and some children are transitioning gender - they belong and have a right to be included. Neither groups should
be stigmatized. Do you know the pre-transition suicide rate because of stigma in trans populations??? Why are you trying to cause
harm?I do not want this information shared with the OCT. You do not need to create a snitch line on hard working teachers. The
OCT should only be involved in investigating egregious teacher behavior and not fearful about teaching about rights enshrined in
the Charter.

I am a parent of school age children and a citizen of Ontario. In no way shape or form will I, as a parent, accept any curriculum
taught in schools that disrupts the human rights and/or the Charter of Rights and Freedoms afforded to everyone in Canada. Nor
will I accept a curriculum that marginalizes, or in other insidious ways, ignores the realities of today's gender fluidity, the enduring
fact of legalized gay marriage and/or a curriculum that sidelines any imaginable form of gender expression and internet/media
awareness. I and my children support gay marriage, I and my children support any expression of gender whatsoever, we support
all LGBTQ2II++, we support trans people and protecting their rights. We support media awareness and children must be kept
aware of the realities of the internet and social media, by becoming educated in order to protect themselves and to resist online
bullies.This new Ontario Curriculum, that has been amateurishly foisted on students by the retrograde Ford government should not
contravene Human Rights or the Charter of Rights and Freedoms including the rights of gay and trans individuals including those of
gay and trans children.

The Catholic school does not include marriage outside of a heterosexual relationship. Terms are always "Man and wife", while many
children at this school have same-sex parents. While I don't disagree about a discussion of abstinence with children, there should
be more open discussion about the reality of sexual interactions outside of marriage. Consent was not covered adequately by my
children's teachers. And a teacher fast-forwarded through a video that had two grown men kissing, explaining to students that she
didn't think it was appropriate - despite the fact that Canada recognizes same-sex relationships and marriage.

I have concerns about how you opening statement is put forth. Are you looking for feedback on the 1998 Health & Physical

much of what a child today would beneficial. However, I have no concerns whatsoever about the 2015 Health & Physical Education
Curriculum that has been taught up until your government got into office. The 2015 covers everything that children need to know
from bullying, cyber safety as well finally having children learn about self safety, proper names of body parts, that families come in
all forms and it is ok be different. I’m more concerned about how terrible and homophobic the current sitting Provincial Government
is. I take great offence that you, yourself have used misinformation and lies to spread untruths about the 2015 curriculum. I
thought as a province we had grown above that kind of thing, I guess the Provincial Conservatives however continue to stick their

In the 1998 Sex Education Curriculum, it did not so much as mention topics like "sexual orientation", "homophobia", or "gender
identity". It wasn’t until grade eight that students learned, rather direly, the consequences of sexual activity. In 1998, there was no
YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter - the Internet was just beginning to be used regularly, and cell phones were only just coming out.
Technology has quickly evolved and advanced along with society - the education provided to students also needs to follow that
same evolution.In the 2015 Sex Education Curriculum, students learn to identify their body parts, and what healthy relationships
should look like. They look at different family structures, puberty, mental health, stereotypes in relation to self-esteem, consent,
and how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STIs). Students explore gender identity and expression, sexual orientation,
suicide warning signs and prevention, addictions, internet safety and sexting, and the different resources that are available within
the community. This curriculum focuses on many issues that are incredibly relevant to youth today and MUST continue to be taught
and updated as society evolves and changes.Our society as a whole is moving forward very quickly. Things today aren't the same
as they were even last year, let alone TWO DECADES ago, and our school system and government must continue to keep up with
the modern times. This is 2018 - not 1998! Students today need to be taught about the world they are living in TODAY, not the
world in 1998. Society has progressed very far in the last two decades, and our school system and curriculum needs to reflect
that.The 2015 curriculum must stay in place.

both from their peers and from predators, and ensures that children understand their rights and that they have a choice in what
hapens to their bodies. I believe that the choice to switch back to a twenty-year-old curriculum endangers children and enables
predators. Please switch back to the well-researched, heaily-consulted new sex ed curriculum.

As a mid 20s gay man, I was a product of the 1998 curriculum. I spent a significant portion of my teens and early 20s feeling
confused and shamed for my own preferences and for the most part feeling alone as it generally wasn’t taught. Most of what I
learned ended up being self taught from the internet as my parents were not a resource I could rely to on school. Setting a level
and even playing field for all students and starting ‘normalizing’ the conversation at a younger age really would have benefited me
and my development. I find this whole roleback very similar to the plight of segregated schools and normalizing diversity in schools.
Teaching students that even if your students don’t look like you, they’re still the same was a very important part of the curriculum,
how is this any different. This partisan issue by the vocal minority needs to stop, institute the 2015 curriculum. For all I care, just
rerelease it as a Conservative win and get the policital capital, just don’t let the children suffer. This tattletale system is ridiculous,

I have concerns that the current curriculum will not be taught. Any informed parent knows what is actually in the document rather
than highlighting some sound-bites out of context which makes it seem as though it is a "how-to" document rather than one that is
rooted in removing shame, blame and empowers ALL students, not just those whose identities align with the hetero-normative
notions in society. The current curriculum needs to continue to be taught. Ignorance of topics does not make our children safer it
only sets them up to find themselves in situations they can't handle, can't report or can't come to terms with, in a safe and

teachers, contributing to a consumer student culture where everything is the teacher's fault. This is disgusting. Doug Ford talks
about parents needing to be respected, so teachers do not use students for political grandstanding? That's EXACTLY what this

It is unacceptable that a curriculum written in 1998 should even be considered as relevant. It is important that children learn about
consent, different family structures, the potential consequences of sexting and sharing sexual material, safe sex practices (including
anal sex) and all orientations and genders so they can be better prepared for their own lives and those they will come in contact
with. I am in favour of the updated 2015 curriculum. I do not think additional money for research, forums or writers needs to be
spent.

And, make no mistake, if we find somebody failing to do their job, we will act." LOL, what a world class hypocrite. His government
is doing precisely that: using our children as pawns for grandstanding and political games. The pre-Ford updated sex ed curriculum
is sound, evidence-based policy, and teachers should be allowed to teach everything in it according to their professional discretion.

As a mom, survivor of sexual violence and student of the 1998 curriculum, it is terrifying to me that we could be going back to what
was taught to me 20 years ago. Not only was I hoping for my baby to be taught in school the same science and common sense that
they will be taught at home, but there are a million new ways for them to be victimized that their school and teachers need to be
talking about. The old curriculum enables perpetrators and takes agency away from victims. My baby deserves better.

I have a concern that the government has forgotten what decade we live in and is preventing my child from learning the realit y of
true sex education by reverting the curriculum back to the '90's. Fortunately, we have a very open and honest ability to talk with
our child and inform her that the government is being run by a minority that does not care for those that are transgendered,
homosexual, bisexual or anything not conforming to the archaic text of the bible. The fact you have created a snitch website, paid
for with my taxes, shows us how poorly we can expect things to be run for the next 4 years. A sad state of affairs. Please confirm
that a portal will be set up to report MPP's that are not conforming to the proper due diligence of consulting the public before
making decisions that constituents don't support. I support teachers in their efforts to educate my child about living in the 2010
decade.

The 2015 physical and health education curriculum was designed and written by experts in child development, internet safety,
police, and social workers, in consultation with roughly 4,000 parents.It emphasizes much-needed lessons of consent, acceptance
for others and sexual health. We can’t afford to stop teaching kids about consent and acceptance. Youth deserve scientific facts and
unbiased information when it comes to their health. It’s simple: society will suffer if we don’t educate children in these
topics.Opponents of the curriculum make up a small but vocal minority, despite what they argue, evidence from the UN shows that
access to comprehensive sex-ed does not increase sexual activity. It leads to well-informed decisions and reduces the risk of
harmful sexual behaviour.The existing curriculum goes far beyond providing age-appropriate information about sexual and
reproductive health. It teaches personal safety, healthy relationships based on mutual respect and consent, and is inclusive of all
children and youth who call Ontario home.

My concern is not about the curriculum. I actually have no concern about the 2015 curriculum or the way it’s being taught. My
concern is the Ontario government’s dangerous decision to revert to a curriculum taught 20 years ago that does not address
consent, cyber-bullying or LGBTQ issues and acceptance. This is just wrong. 4,000 parents were consulted on this curriclum. Your
government is pandering to a religious right minority and ignoring the serious concerns raised by thousands of parents and
educators. Also, your question frames the conversation as a concern with the curriculum which is false and misleading for the

We have family friends who have a transgendered child. I want to ensure that our communities understand and accept all others,
anywhere on the gender spectrum, of any sexual orientation between consenting parties. My husband and I are cis gendered,
hetersexuals in a man/woman relationship by a marriage officiated by an ordained minister. The existence and respect of others
who are gendered differently than we are, or who love and attraction are different than ours has no effect on our relationship, our
marriage or our family.Denying accurate and respectful information about ALL types of consensual adult sexuality will, in so many
ways, affect our friends family and the future success and happiness of their child. I will fully support any teacher who shares this
accurate information and respect regardless of the politically, hateful motivation of this Ford administration. Support an inclusive
sex education and support the teachers to do their jobs (which is to help our children grow to be intelligent, respectful adults,
regardless of their sexuality, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, financial status, disAbility (both visible and non-

I have an issue with the way Mr. Ford is trying to ruin the education system. Teaching children about consent, diversity, FNMI
people and math process skills are what are children need. , these are skills and content that your children need to prepare
themselves for the future. He is using our students as pawns for his political gain. He is attacking teachers by inviting parents to
anonymously complain about teachers, without going through the proper remediation channels that are currently available. Mr.
Ford has no idea what the classroom of today looks like and needs to start listening to his teachers, the school boards and the
unions. If the school boards and unions are unified on an issue (using the 2015 HPE curriculum), then you know reverting to the
1998 ( not the so-called 2014) curriculum is not a good idea.

physical & mental health will be jeapodized by a dearth of appropriate information about their bodies, consent, the diversity of
families, of sexual orientation and gender identity. I am significantly concerned that the fragile strides we have made in Truth &
Reconcillion efforts will be pushed decades back by removing aboriginal content from the curriculum. And I am horrified that

threats and fears of reprisal from a minority of small minded and ignorant parents and politicians.

I love the brave teachers that care more about their responsibilities to the children than their job security. I am deeply concerned
about the directive to teach the 1998 health and physical education curriculum that I was taught in high school. It's a whole
generation old, and was inadequet back then! Good lord, we didn't even have the ability to sext! We didn't understand that sex
itself extended beyond good ol' penis in vagina, and never heard an authoritative adult say 'penis' until grade nine (at which point
everyone giggles like they're back in elementary school), and certainly didn't learn about different sexual orientations, mental
health, genders, or consent. Take a look at pregnancy stats and suicides then. What is wrong with sexual literacy and education
that fosters tolerance and empowerment of our most vulnerable kids? The 2015 program was done with consultation - parents and
professionals - and to redo it to appease a small religious minority is fiscally irresponsible. To pull it out completely is going to be
directly doing harm to our children, my children, my children's friends. Shame on you. All my support to any teacher who teaches
the current 2015 health & phys ed curriculum. I stand with them, they are not alone, and I am not alone.

I want to address the fact my child will be learning the same sex ed that I learned back in 1998. It is woefully outdated, leaves out
mentions of consent, masturbation, same sex relationships, gender fluidity and other healthy sexual health norms that weren't left
addressed in the 1998 curriculum.I also worry about my child's teacher being out of a job if they teach the 2015 curriculum to my
children.I have two daughters. The 1998 curriculum does nothing to teach them about healthy relationships, sexting, how sexting
can be seen as the distribution of child porn - I've also been unable to get a hold of Doug Ford or anyone on his team despite

The 2015 curriculum has it right. Don't mess with it. Have you, Mr. Ford, even read both curriculums? In preparation for this, I
have. I want my son to know about consent, that he, along with any child, has the right to say no. I want him to be supportive and
knowledgeable about the ever growing LGBTQ community. I want him to identify as whatever gender makes him feel comfortable in
his own skin. I want him to know about online bullying and how sexual predators attack kids online. All of this is addressed already
in the 2015 curriculum. The 1998 curriculum, or rather the 1998 curriculum disguised as the 2010 curriculum doesn't even come
close as some of these things didnt exist. Are you aware that grade 6s this year will learn the same thing (reproductive system)
they did last year according to the 1998 curriculum? This whole situation is ludicrous. The second thing is that I have an issue with
you telling parents to go over the educator's heads and straight to the OCT. This is not how problems are solved and this is not how
they should be solved. This just creates division pitting parents against teachers with the students suffering in the end. Not to
mention tying up the OCT's resources because of mad parents, instead of doing the fantastic job they already are doing getting rid
of the few bad apples.Do your homework and instead of making broad sweeping changes a couple months before school starts, do
all the forums and research first. Maybe create a plan that has some intelligence and thought and actually have a new curriculum
ready instead of going back to the dark ages for 'good old days' sake.Back in the good old days I was bullied relentlessly, nearly
committed suicide. This is what your 1998 curriculum did for me...nothing. I want my son to have it better. Basically, this is the
worst idea I've ever heard. I fully support the teachers but was willing to give you a chance...you failed. Sincerely,

Hi! I think that as EDUCATORS, our teachers should be giving our children the tools to safely protect themselves, as well as
TRUTHFULLY educate them. This curriculum (1998!!!) is terribly ignorant, is not the best interest of any child in Ontario, and should
most definitely NOT be the basis of what we teach our children about sexuality, sex, and anything in between. This curriculum is

grades (i.e. multiplication tables, drills, etc)Literacy needs to be addressed esp spellingUse of technology needs to be limited and
take into considerations medical recommendations of, at most, 2 hours per day. Reduce use of social media as teaching toolTrain
teachers so that they specialize in one subject so that they are skilled Reduce classroom size and address issues for students in
spec ed. Revisit the progressive discipline policies as it is not working for students, parents or teachers

I have deep concerns that the curriculum proposed by Doug Ford's government is a direct attack on my and my family's human
rights. My child, who has same-sex parents, deserves to be supported by a curriculum that affirms that his family is as legitimate
and "normal" as any other family, that his gender, however he chooses to express it, is worthy of celebration. I want to know that
my tax dollars—which I gladly pay, to support necessary social programs in our province—are going toward providing my child with
UP TO DATE and factually sound information that will allow him to make positive choices for his developmental and sexual health
and overall safety—this includes learning about consent, about queer (and straight!) sexuality, about gender expression. This
includes learning how to identify and prevent sexual assault and abuse—both for himself and on behalf of others—and it includes
learning about cyberbullying. It is appalling that a solid factual curriculum, one developed after EXTENSIVE consultation with
experts and families, is being scrapped to appease conservative zealots. It is a disgusting waste of my tax dollars to be undertaking
a new, biased process of "consultation." For the PC government to purge the curriculum of LGBTQ content by claiming it's out of
"respect for parents" is absurd—it's a flagrant violation of my own human rights, as a parent with children in the public school
system. I respect the rights of families who subscribe to conservative religious beliefs to opt out of progressive education; they
should respect the rights of the rest of us who demand that our children be educated with relevant, up-to-date, vitally important
material. And it's abhorrent that the PC government is punishing teachers who are doing the absolute best by our students by
setting up a de facto snitch line that penalizes the educators who are simply trying to ensure that their charges receive the same
education as peers outside of this province governed by folks determined to keep its citizens in the dark ages.

taught to all kids in the fall. We cannot afford to return to the education that we had. As a gay youth, I was brought up in this

money snitching on dedicated teachers doing their jobs properly and teaching children the 2015 curriculum. I will never snitch on a

I want my children to learn current issues not issues of 1998. Reinstate the 2015 curriculum and stop wasting money on someth ing
that was already consulted on and written. This is Canada, this is Ontario. More MATH specialists in Elementary panel of education.
Most student do not meet their first REAL math teacher until Grade 9. The same for science. This one is easy to demonstrate and fix
by looking at registered teacher data on OCT and compare to class assignments across the boards. I hypothesize you would find tha

My concerns are related to the rolling back of the 2015 curriculum to the 2014 curriculum from a sex education perspective. I fully
support the OCT and teachers in their role as professionals to use discretion to teach elements of the 2016 curriculum to my
children. Furthermore, your new release suggests you are respecting parent by including us in consultations. In the mean time you
are rolling back the curriculum - without consultation and with little to no evidence to support that the 2014 curriculum is better
than the 2015 one. This may result in 3 different curriculums in a span of 2 years (talk about waste). This rollback only serves to
please Ontarians who voted for your platform, placing "promise made, promise kept" over informed policy development.
Furthermore, the site you have posted and the language you are using is patronizing to citizens, clearly slanted towards your
ultimate goal/beliefs before the process has even started. The website allows people to "submit complaints about the current
curriculum". You are asking parents "what is wrong" with the current curriculum without encouraging open dialogue and identifying
what is actually right. What about an unbiased approach which promotes an honest conversation. Your first step out the door has
turned this into an adversarial conversation rather than a constructive, thoughtful, and evidence-based approach - starting by
threatening the teachers who care for our children with corrective action if they don't listen. Finally, I've watched several initiatives
be rolled back over the past month or two, several cited as "emotional policy making" by a Liberal government. Its ironic to see
curriculum rolled back before consultation and evidence is gathered, for what are purely partisan (emotional/philosophical) reasons
at this point in time.

It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds
of nouns that can be got rid of as well. It isn't only the synonyms; there are also the antonyms. After all, what justification is there
for a word which is simply the opposite of some other word? A word contains its opposite in itself. Take "good", for instance. If you
have a word like "good", what need is there for a word like "bad"? "Ungood" will do just as well — better, because it's an exact
opposite, which the other is not. Or again, if you want a stronger version of "good", what sense is there in having a whole string of
vague useless words like "excellent" and "splendid" and all the rest of them? "Plusgood" covers the meaning, or "doubleplusgood" if
you want something stronger still. Of course we use those forms already. but in the final version of Newspeak there'll be nothing
else. In the end the whole notion of goodness and badness will be covered by only six words — in reality, only one word. Don't you
see the beauty of that, Winston?

Fuck Doug Ford and the "Progressive" (LOL) Conservative party. Thanks to you bigoted assholes, kids in Ontario will no longer be
properly educated on STDs and other sexual diseases and LGBTQ children will be bullied due to a lack of awareness and education
kids will have about different sexual orientations and identies, but I guess the Conservative party is just fine compelling these
bullied children to commit suicide (it's not like suicide rates among LGBTQ youth aren't high enough already).The only disease kids
should learn about is Doug Ford and conservativism which seeks to keep humanity back 100 years as much as possible while they
hide behind this idea that conservatism is really only about spending less tax payer money. Tell me, how the fuck it is dangerous to
teach kids how to protect themselves against sexual diseases and that there are people of different sexual orientations and identies
in the real world and that it's totally normal and to treat these people with respect instead of ignorant discrimination?Thanks for
setting the province 2 decades back and hurting kids in Ontario you evil people.

The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid
joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill,
to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current,
turning one even against one's will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected

From the moment when the machine first made its appearance it was clear to all thinking people that the need for human drudgery,
and therefore to a great extent human inequality, had disappeared. If the machine were used deliberately for that end, hunger,
overwork, dirt, illiteracy, and disease could be eliminated within a few generations. And in fact, without being used for any such
purpose, but by a sort of automatic process—by producing wealth which it was sometimes impossible not to distribute—the
machine did raise the living standards of the average human being very greatly over a period of about fifty years at the end of the
nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries. But it was also clear that an all-round increase in wealth threatened the
destruction—indeed, in some sense was the destruction—of a hierarchical society. In a world in which everyone worked short hours,
had enough to eat, lived in a house with a bathroom and a refrigerator, and possessed a motor-car or even an aeroplane, the most
obvious and perhaps the most important form of inequality would already have disappeared. If it once became general, wealth
would confer no distinction.

When finally you surrender to us, it must be of your own free will. We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us: so long as
he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion
out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before
we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it
may be. Even in the instant of death we cannot permit any deviation. In the old days the heretic walked to the stake still a heretic,
proclaiming his heresy, exulting in it. Even the victim of the Russian purges could carry rebellion locked up in his skull as he walked
down the passage waiting for the bullet. But we make the brain perfect before we blow it out.

My concern is that the Conservative supported backlash against the updated health curriculum is going to risk student lives by
ignoring the importance of teaching consent and strengthening inclusive school communities and well-being. Teachers require even
more support in teaching current health issues, not to be dragged back into a pre-social media, pre-updated human rights code
way of discussing sexuality and gender. I hope the KPRDSB and other school boards will support their teachers in appropriately
teaching the updated content as per ETFO and OSSTF recommendations.The current grandstanding by the new provincial
government is going to have significant financial and human cost. The approach being taken by Doug Ford and his ministers is also
further damaging the important connection between school and home which requires support rather than conflict so that students
can experience a clear sense of encouragement and guidance. If you continue in this direction, I believe we will see increased risk
to student mental health as well as student physical health impacts which include STIs and teenage pregnancy. Look at the
evidence around the need for this information and not the fear mongering and politicking.

such as consent, proper anatomy labelling, and discussion of LGBTQ issues including same-sex marriage and relationships are very
important for the safety and health of our communities. Taking a step back is detrimental to both our children and adults in our

I am writing to support teachers in going above and beyond the 2010 curriculum to continue teaching about anatomy, consent,
gender identity and sexual identity. Children need to be taught at an early age about proper names for their anatomy, about
consent, and about boundaries. It gives them the vocabulary to stop abuse.This is particularly important for students with
disabilities, who are often the ones least likely to receive health education alongside their peers. An estimated 80% of women with
developmental disabilities will be sexually assaulted in their lives, and only a few of these assaults will be reported. I hope,
alongside disability justice activist, Sarah Jama, that the 2015 curriculum will continue to be included in students’ IEPs.I am also
concerned that the 2010 curriculum’s lack of discussion around gender and sexual identity will put kids at risk. I was heartened by
the TDSB’s recent message that they have a “responsibility guided by the Human Rights Code, the Education Act and supported by
TDSB policies, to ensure that each and every student, such as LGBTQ students, feels included and reflected in our schools and
classrooms.” My hope is that other local school boards will feel equally committed to this.

My main concern with the current sex ed curriculum (adopted in 2015) is only one: that it will disappear, it will not be taught
anymore, leaving children in ignorance about what is sexuality in 2018 (which includes knowledge on the body, relationships in the
era of social media, diversity in sexual orientations, etc). We will be creating ignorant, judging and non-tolerant creatures, that will
eventually contribute to the self destruction of our communities as we know them in Canada - accepting and supportive, working
together for the common good. Congratulations on one of your many dumb decisions Mr. Ford.

I want to express concerns with the idea of the 2015 Health curriculum being taken away and my children going back to learning a
curriculum that is 20 years old - far older than they are. It is a blatantly homophobic move by this government and as the parent of
a child who is part of the LGBTQ+ community, I am horrified that any government would be allowed to get away with this. I am
also against spending my tax dollars to do another “comprehensive” consultation of parents to see what they want to be a part of
the health curriculum, let alone the math curriculum. Does comprehensive in this case include parents who believe in acceptance of
others in all communities? I highly doubt it! This government should be ashamed of itself.

I am a researcher with expertise in cyberviolence and gender-based violence. The Wynne curriculum was extensive, informed and
all-around excellent. The Conservative decision to scrap that, DUPLICATE WORK THAT HAD ALREADY BEEN DONE, and then create
this snitch line to try and get educators fired disgusts me. The Conservatives say that they won't permit grandstanding and the use
of children for political games, but that exactly what their policy has been so far. Scrap the old curriculum and try to bully teachers
into teaching their ideological bullshit, all for the sake of grandstanding to their regressive base.

I am concerned that my children will be taught a retrograde curriculum that will not equip them to deal with the realities of being
an adult in the 21st century. I am concerned that an evidence-based curriculum, the development of which was funded by my tax
dollars, is being thrown out the window because the current government is more interested in pandering to religious groups than it
is in actual governance. Furthermore, I am concerned that the premier has openly threatened any teachers who don't follow the
government's current directives, and that the Ontario government has effectively opened a snitch line. I was not planning to raise
my children in a fascist society and I am not about to start now.

Hello. My concern is for my little sister who I help raise. Her school intends to teach 20 year old sex education that doesn't cover
consent and how to properly deal with online stalkers. I feel like this is an embarrassment to the city of Toronto and does not
reflect a child's best interests. Today with the internet a child is overloaded with information and images and our school boards
should help our children filter this information. Parents are busy trying to make enough money to survive and aren't always there.

I am shocked and devastated that the Premier of Ontario thinks that it's okay to put our children's lives in jeopardy by going
backward to and old, outdated curriculum. Children need to be taught from the 2015 curriculum which teaches acceptance of all
types of families and sexual and gender orientation. Cyber bullying, the dangers of social media and texting, were not an issue
when the old curriculum was written. Also, parents and staff were very well consulted prior to initiating the 2015 curriculum,
despite the lies the current government is spreading. Hopefully the teachers of Ontario will do the right and moral thing in
continuing to teach the 2015 curriculum, showing they care more about their students' lives

As a student who was taught the outdated 1998 sex ed curriculum when I was in elementary school, I do not support the use of
this curriculum. It does not cover crucially important topics such as consent, gender diversity, and open language about sexuality. I
stand with the teachers who are continuing to teach these topics against Doug Ford’s wishes. No young student should need to
learn about sex from their ten year old friends like I did. Let’s end rape culture by teaching kids about consent from a young age.
Bring back the new sex ed curriculum.

I am deeply concerned that the current curriculum will be replaced by the one I learned 20 years ago. 20 years ago the internet
was not in every home, social media didn't exist, it was socially acceptable to antagonize people for being gay, and the
understanding of discrimination was much different than it is today. I want my daughter to grow up in a world where being LGTBQ,
having LGTBQ parents is ok; where bullying or doxxing is unacceptable; where kids are taught to have an online presence that
doesn't put them at risk. I am deeply concerned that backwards thinking social conservatives in power are using a political shift to
play identity politics for their base and are truly ignorant towards the truth and what's ACTUALLY in the best interests of the
children.

her identity isn't considered or addressed as a normal part of society in her class. How dare you make an already uncomfortable
topic more uncomfortable by ceasing to acknowledge the existence of homosexuality in a class designed to discuss boundaries,
health, and human relationships. This will further her harassment from her peers when she's seen as "other" or "bad" because of
her attraction. For a school that's supposed to be teaching my daughter the love of God, I am ashamed and disappointed to know

I am greatly concerned that the 1998 curriculum will not teach the realities of today's world, and that the government is forcing
teachers to fall below the professional standards we expect from teachers. I view this amateurish attempt at a "snitch line" as
below the standards of common decency, and treat it with the contempt it deserves. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

As a parent of two children at Sinclair, I want the teachers to know that I FULLY support the NEW curriculum as it was taught since
2014. The issues addressed are critical to my children's safety and well-being, and to the safety and well-being of other children in
the school. The old curriculum (pre-2000) was grossly inadequate in all regards, and reverting to it would be irresponsible and
unethical. I am appalled at the PC government's decision to scrap the new curriculum.

Why are we taking a step back in time and cutting the health/sex ed curriculum that took so long to get implemented? Let’s
become proactive, forward thinkers and let our children learn a current and relevant sexual education. The other inadequacies in
our curriculum will take more than my allotment of characters to express. Why not scrap the EQAO? It’s meaningless. All children
don’t learn in the same way and that’s why our education system fails them. We need a complete overhaul of the way that we th ink
about teaching and learning. Look to Finland for a better way to present education. Reimplement Wynne’s sex ed curriculum. Let’s
jump into this millennium to give our children a better future.

This website is unclear (as is your government) about just *what* the "current" curriculum will be in my child's school start ing this
September. However, if you're asking me whether I have concerns about the 2015 health curriculum, I will say unequivocally that I
do not: despite what alarmists would like to believe, it is age-appropriate, current, and relevant, as well as evidence-based, fully
researched, and supported by health professionals and educators. Its development involved parental consultation. The 1998
curriculum is outdated and inadequate. To slide backward does a disservice to our children and our society, and to put money into
doing so is a waste. I do think that the government needs to act now to finish the process of responding to the Truth and
Reconciliation Calls to Action and embedding Indigenous content, perspectives and realities from K-12. That would certainly help
improve the curriculum and return it to the fundamental truths of our society.

I would trust the word of child psychology and scientific studies over 'parental input' every time. Are the parents who complain
about the new curriculum going to truly teach their children what they deem 'isn't the school's business to teach'? Not at all! It is
PROVEN that children who are knowledgeable about these issues are more likely to recognize sexual abuses which they would not
have otherwise known was occurring. They will also gain the knowledge in a safe environment, not random websites that kids will
ALWAYS find a way to access. GET WITH THE TIMES!!!!

The fact that Doug Ford wants to revert back to an antiquated sex-ed curriculum is mind-blowing and downright foolish.The world
of 1998 is long gone. There have been huge movements in LGBTQ acceptance and understanding, and the fact that the curriculum
that will be taught in the upcoming school year completely omits this is unacceptable.In addition, entire sections on consent,
understanding of risks (once again, many new ones that did not exist in 1998), are missing, and the overall level of education is not
up to par with society.We are in 2018. Teaching a curriculum from 1998

First, where is the positive feedback option? Why is this survey skewed negative to begin with? What about all the people that are
happy we had an updated and current sex-ed curriculum? The real concern is that you are reverting education. The old curriculum
was just that. Old. It needed to be updated. You are denying the existence of the technological world we live in and the progress
that has been made. This isn't 1996, no matter how much DF wants to revert back to his fuller hair and slimmer body, we live in
the future, where decisions about sex should be made with current, guided information. There is nothing in the new curriculum that
does anything more than create representation for people who exist and teach our kids how to think smarter in a world where
sexting exists and can have unintended negative consequences. You can't hide this information, but if you present it with context, is
that not better than leaving it to the internet or parents who would rather avoid embarrassment than educate their child? We live in
the future, our education should match our progress. It's baffling you could think people thousands of years ago were somehow
more advanced in thought or education. We build robots man. Time to let the present dictate the future.

I am concerned that the current government of Ontario is putting children’s lives at risk by returning to the 1998 curricu lum. This
old curriculum will lead to more children being potentially sexually exploited and harmed as it does not teach about internet and
social media safety, and children won’t learn about consent, sexting or online dangers like cyberbullying. It’s also imperative that
children are taught that it is okay for them to love who they love regardless of gender and I fear an increase in suicides if this is not
addressed.

autonomy over it...no one else. She needs to know that no means no...but so does "I'm not comfortable", "slow down" and being
unable to say anything at all. She needs to be taught how to be safe online and all that comes with being on social media as a

I am concerned that teachers are not teaching about consent, bodily autonomy, and the proper names for genitalia. The institution

children only feeds into their vulnerability. Shame on any teacher who doesn't do their due diligence to protect students by giving
them the knowledge and language to call out abuse. This is very much the opposite of what Jesus would do.

I favour the 2015 curriculum. It has important updates on cyberbullying, consent, and sexual orientation that are lacking from the

curriculum on a generation that experiences a changed world from 1998. A candidate's canvasser showed up at my door last May
and told me that as a parent I should want to keep my child innocent for as long as possible. I don't see it as a matter of
innocence, but ignorance. I want my children to be as learned and as prepared for the challenges of life as they can be. This is why
I think it is important to teach the 2015 curriculum.

I am concerned that under the current government of Ontario the school boards are all being pressured to teach outdated sex ed
information that does not reflect the current risks that children are exposed to via internet information and mis-information. I
believe this step is being taken to appease a tiny minority of Ontario residents and it does not reflect the beliefs of the majority of
Ontarians. I believe that there was a sufficient consultation process with both parents and experts having a voice in the
development of the curriculum introduced in 2015. I believe it is important for children of all ages to be taught about consent
outside of the home since a significant portion of sexual assaults are perpetrated by trusted relatives and authority figures. Children
of all ages need medically accurate language to understand their experiences in order to appropriately seek help. I applaud the
OCDSB for publicly identifying that they oppose the regressive policy to revert to outdated information as the official curriculum.

I'm concerned that reverting back to the 1998 Sex Ed Curriculum is dangerous and irresponsible. Among my concerns with this
curriculum change, it erases transgender and gay students and students' families, and it makes no mention of social media or
online culture, which is a huge part of being an elementary and secondary student in the present time.

The decision to remove the updated sexual education and return to the 1998 version is utterally reprehensible. Your choice will
cause actual harm to children, and fundamentally not prepare them for life. The Ford government should be ashamed of this
moronic move, they are doing exactly the opposite of what they claim to be, playing with our children’s lives for purely political
gain. Nothing could be more disgusting. Why didn’t they already have a plan on place???? The level of incompetence from this
government is beyond comprehension.

I teach university-level courses on gender. Let's imagine next year and the next three years (until Ontario citizens replace the
present governing party and we return to a better sex-education curriculum). In the years to come, due to the reinstatement of
20th century sex-ed curricula, I will be required to teach adults about the differences between sex and gender, teach them the
absolute basics of sex and gender (they aren't the same thing! you have a gender AND a sex!), and perhaps be called upon to
accurately identify genitalia, gender performances, same-same sexual relationships, various types of sexual and romantic
relationships, sexual harassment, consent, homophobia, and on and on. These adults should have all this knowledge ahead of my
course thanks to their grade-school education. Instead of a university-level class about social groupings and the implications of
gender performances on everyday life, in future years I will be a grade-school sex-educator. My job will be tremendously more
difficult because I'm not a grade-school sex educator and haven't had the necessary training. In the near future, I imagine spending
classes arguing with students about the backwards non-sense they've been taught in grade-school and I imagine LGBTQ+ students
in my classroom feeling even more marginalized than they already are. This is not the classroom dynamic I aspire toward.Not only
will this job be more difficult, I fear for my career since my students will not have accurate information about sex and gender and,
when I teach them about wee-wees and hoo-hoos, they or their parents might snitch on me. The last thing a part-time contract
instructor needs is complaints filed against them. I'm disgusted with the Ontario government. I'm pre-emptively "snitching" on Ford
et al for teaching inappropriate content in the classroom. Please retain current sex-ed curricula, for my sake and my students.

curriculum with sensitivity and professionalism. This curriculum is necessary and the outdated 1998 curriculum will not do. My
children need a curriculum that reflects the world they are growing up in. By all means hold consultations and update where there
are concerns but do not take this curriculum away. Telling parents to report teachers, which contradicts the essential protocol of
first addressing the teacher, principal then trustee directly undermines our education system. You say you want to hear from
parents, so here is my opinion, please register it as you move forwards.

The new sex ed curriculum does not cater to the needs of the day and age we are living in. Kids mature physically way earlier than
before and need to know their bodies and understand the concept of consent. Also they need to understand more about the internet
and it’s use and how they can be in physical danger as a result of using the internet carelessly. The sex ed curriculum should reflect
the current practices and should be kept as up to speed as technology or other changing fields constantly are.

The 2015 curriculum is unnaceptable. Kathleen Wynne's Liberal government has ruined the way kids are taught, and what is right
and wrong. The curriculum that Doug Ford's Conservative government wants to have in place is ideal. The way the younger
generations have been previously taught is embarrassing and absolutely wrong. There is enough problems coming from the
younger generation, and this is a necessary step into improving our schools and education systems. There is no need for complaints
about the 1998 curriculum because that is how things should be. The 2015 Curriculum has done nothing but cause hassle amongst
parents, children, teachers amd so on. LET THE GOVERNMENT DO THEIR JOBS, there's a reason why Kathleen Wynne wasn't re-
elected and changes being made are for the better futures of the younger generations.

The 2015 physical and health education curriculum was designed and written by experts in child development, internet safety,
police, and social workers, in consultation with roughly 4,000 parents.It emphasizes much-needed lessons of consent, acceptance
for others and sexual health. In the age of Me Too, we can’t afford to stop teaching kids about consent and acceptance. Youth
deserve scientific facts and unbiased information when it comes to their health. It’s simple: society will suffer if we don’t educate
children in these topics.Opponents of the curriculum make up a small but vocal minority, come from the far-right and helped get
Ford elected. But despite what they argue, evidence from the UN shows that access to comprehensive sex-ed does not increase
sexual activity. It leads to well-informed decisions and reduces the risk of harmful sexual behaviour.The existing curriculum goes
far beyond providing age-appropriate information about sexual and reproductive health. It teaches personal safety, healthy
relationships based on mutual respect and consent, and is inclusive of all children and youth who call Ontario home.

I believe that the government has made a grave error in repealing the curriculum. I trust the teachers of Ontario to use their
professional judgement when teaching my 3 children. Leaving out current issues such as sexting, online bullying, digital citizenship,
and acknowledgment of gender issues is downright dangerous. I have always received a letter home asking if I consent to my ch ild
being present during these health classes. If Ontarians don’t want their children present, they can excuse them as it is their right.
But remember, it is also the right of parents to allow children to receive quality education that addresses current issues.

I am concerned that an outdated curriculum will be taught to students this Fall and teachers who "disobey" will be punished.
Contrary to what critics of the 2015 curriculum believe, sex education does not sexualize children. Instead, it informs them, teaches
them about consent, is backed by science, and introduces proper terminology into the vocabulary and knowledge of our youth. The
removal of current curriculum takes us back to 1998 – a time before Google, before same sex marriage in Canada, a time before
the #metoo movement. Why can our children not have an informed discussion about their bodies, choices and actions? It’s 2018.
It’s about time we have proper education and dialogue with our youth. If not in a standardized format, woven into curriculum –
which was done with widespread consultation with experts (social workers, counsellors, teachers) alongside parents via our former
government – how do we expect our children to find the information they need? They will still seek it and find it, but it won’t always
be accurate or informed.Children have questions about their sexual health, and it is important that they receive the appropriate
tools and information to make sound decisions and understand their bodies, along with their choices and how to respect their peers.
So in short - yes, I am concerned about the current curriculum being taught in the classroom if it is anything other than the 2015
curriculum.

I am concerned that an outdated curriculum will be taught to students this Fall and teachers who "disobey" will be punished.
Contrary to what critics of the 2015 curriculum believe, sex education does not sexualize children. Instead, it informs them, teaches
them about consent, is backed by science, and introduces proper terminology into the vocabulary and knowledge of our youth. The
removal of current curriculum takes us back to 1998 – a time before Google, before same sex marriage in Canada, a time before
the #metoo movement. Why can our children not have an informed discussion about their bodies, choices and actions? It’s 2018.
It’s about time we have proper education and dialogue with our youth. If not in a standardized format, woven into curriculum –
which was done with widespread consultation with experts (social workers, counsellors, teachers) alongside parents via our former
government – how do we expect our children to find the information they need? They will still seek it and find it, but it won’t always
be accurate or informed.Children have questions about their sexual health, and it is important that they receive the appropriate
tools and information to make sound decisions and understand their bodies, along with their choices and how to respect their peers.
So in short - yes, I am concerned about the current curriculum being taught in the classroom if it is anything other than the 2015
curriculum.

My child deserves a comprehensive sex education. Should he be an lgbtq person why would I support a sex ed policy that puts him
at risk, by pretending he doesnt exist. Children of all orientations deserve to be taught safe sex that applies to them.

Hello - this is the 21st Century, stop fearing difference and sexuality, and teach our kids about their bodies, and things like sexting,
consent, difference and inclusivity! I fear the ignored and the fearful more than I fear a gay or lesbian or ever (gasp) a
transgendered person ... stop this stupidity and just teach the 2015 curriculum and quit the demeaning, pandering fear mongering
that our dis-Honourable Premier is pushing

Your teachers taught my daughter sex education based on scientific research. This is blasphemy. We prefer to lie about sex, only
using confusing metaphors. When she is an adult she can learn about it on her wedding night, like all the women in our family had
to. If a predator teaches her first, taking advantage of her ignorance, she will of course learn through shame.

You need to introduce consent and online awareness back into the sex Ed curriculum ! This is 2018 and we can not go backwards.
We don’t need a whole generation of young men and women not fully understanding their sexual rights and freedoms. This is ver y
scary. Teachers in Ontario do a great job, give them more money for supplies not send us back in time to when gay marriage
wasn’t accepted and snap chat didn’t exist.

We don't appreciate the government deciding to consult so very few parents before implementing in 2015.Unscientific garbage that
puts kids at risk. You can't fill children's heads with false ideas of simply choosing your gender.The Wynne government should be
ashamed of what they implemented. There's a lot of information out there that clearly states that sex education doesn't work.
Perhaps the liberals should listen to both sides of an argument. Why does the government need their hands in on sex education to
begin with.

As a mother of a young daughter in the Ontario school system. I have taught her ALL about sex ed as it is my job as her mom, but
it's nice to know that what I have taught her is backed up by the teachers au her school. She was NOT even a thought in the 90's
and in 2018 the internet is NOT our children's friend. Learning about same sex couples is a good thing, there is still a lot of idiots
out their who don't support same sex relationships, so how are those parents supposed to teach their own children how to be
excepting? The new sex ed is NOT a how too have sex. Our children NEED this updated curriculum, we really SHOULDN'T be taking
a step back in time. Doug, get your crap together and realize WE NEED THIS! OUR CHILDREN NEED THIS!

I have serious concerns about how badly the changes to sex-ed curriculum are being handled. I think it is embarrassing that
teachers are expected to revert back to teaching curriculum that is outdated by several decades under the threat of discipline. It
think it is an embarrassment that an anonymous tip is being proposed to report on our teachers. I think that rather than listening
to political pandering to determine curriculum, these decisions should be made by subject matter experts. I sincerely hope that
common sense will prevail, and prior to the start of the school year.

the issues facing our children now in 2018. We need modern, comprehensive sex-ed. Children need to learn about their bodies,
consent, diverse kinds of families, diverse sexual orientations, and gender identity. All of these things were included in the 2015
revisions and it is a waste of taxpayer dollars that this issue is being revisited again. Please reinstate the 2015 curriculum.

By your invitation for me to express “my concerns about the curriculum currently being taught”, I need it noted that I read the
word “current” in the sense of up until June 2018. I have no concerns about the current Healthy Living and Mathematics curriculae
as they are based on current STUDENT needs. To be clear, there is no 2014 Health curriculum. This is misleading and irrespons ible.
Nor is there “Discovery Math” which is a term the Ford government seems to have invented. Please consider using more direct and
accurate language when seeking public input. My own children experienced the old (1998) Health curriculum and it did NOT meet
their mental and sexual health needs the way it needed to. My children have needed extensive therapy since adolescence as they
tried to navigate a new landscape of social media and digital information that was not considered in curriculum written for a 1998
child. A strong component of their therapy has related to such issues as sexual identity, sexual consent, sexual and emotional
assault by peers, and how to cope with anxiety and depression. With the sudden influx of social media and changing digital
information available to children since 1998, reverting to this old health curriculum is a Public Safety Issue. Rolling back this clock is
dangerous and unnecessary since the updated 2015 curriculum is based on current, RELEVANT research, along with extensive
parent consultation, along with experts across fields. What a ridiculous thing to make changes so sweeping and abrupt. This is
entirely political and transparent. Our kids need to know about sexual consent, names of their body parts, gender identity,
masturbation, same-sex relationships, cyber bullying, and how to protect their mental and physical health in 2018 and beyond.

The 2015 curriculum was developed with careful thought and consultation. I have absolutely no problem with it and the language of
your feedback takes an immediate negative context by asking the public to address our “concerns”. Are you only looking for
negatives? As the aunt and friend of gay and transgender youth, I take great issue with not keeping positive LGBTQ conversation in
the curriculum. There was enough wide range consultation and to seek a different response, most probably from your base is short

My concern with the "current" curriculum that the Ford government has dictated should be re-instated is that it was not developed
in this millennium. 1998 is the year I graduated high school. The 1998 curriculum says nothing of social media, cyber-bullying,
sexting, consent, gender, tolerance, inclusivity, and it delegitimizes LGBTQ kids as humans, fomenting self-loathing and devaluing
their worth in society. I'm not okay with a curriculum so out of touch with modern societal norms that would try its best to foist us
back 20 years.The 2015 curriculum has my full and wholehearted support, as do the teachers who do such an amazing job of using
it to help our kids become wonderful, thoughtful, valuable, inclusive humans.

instances where gender dysphoria is being promoted, , I am naturally very concerned by this.I think it's funny how there was such
a urgency to teach topics like gay sex and transexualism, while disregarding some subjectively more important sex-Ed topics. For
example, many women my age (20-24) have serious confidence issues related to the way their breasts/nipples and vagina/labia
look. We were never taught how different they could appear and now we have a generation that is getting cosmetic surgery to fix
something that is normal already.You are on the right tract with reviewing the sex-Ed curriculum and I just hope you incorporate
learning experiences that will lead to successful, healthy adults.

I have no concerns with the current sex ed curriculum as created. I believe that students need to be engaged and equipped through
education to handle the world that they live in currently. The digital age presents many challenges and potential for children to be
exploited and the education will help them with this. Burying our heads in the sand and teaching an outdated sex ed curriculum will
do far more harm. Parent continue to ave the ability to opt out if they feel the information does not meet their cultural or religious
standards.

I am extremely concerned that you are deciding to reinstate a 20 year old health curriculum. I have 3 daughters. I do not know
their sexual orientation, gender identity, etc as they are and they are free to learn and grow in their own ways, including self
expression. However I do know that the 2015 curriculum addresses these issues. It also addresses consent and other issues not in
the 1998 curriculum. ALL children must learn about consent and LGBTQ issues for their safety. As well as internet use, etc. If a peer
of my daughter does not learn about consent and tries to rape her, you better be damed sure my girls will know their rights and will
respond accordingly. ALL children NEED a relevant curriculum. You can NOT trust all parents out there to educate their kids about
Health Education. MANY don’t ever discuss it. Is is a MUST in schools where we can ensure our children are taught truths and
safety. Wake up. It is 2018. I will fight this curriculum change as it impacts my children greatly. Teachers are professionals and I
support them 100%. I expect them to continue to teach the 2015 Health curriculum.

I am very concerned about the older curriculum being re-introduced. The 2015 curriculum was vetted by a developed by experts in
education, child development and sexual abuse prevention. It was then vetted by an unusual number of parents. Improving
curriculum is always a good idea but this is not looking at how to improve it.

All of the new, old curriculum that will be taught is a problem. Do I sue Doug Ford in court when my child is raped because Doug
Ford says consent isn't important for children to learn about? Do I take him to court because the word Transgender is not to be

I think the 2015 heath curriculum was a MUCH needed update to an archaic and outdated curriculum from 1998. I was impressed
with how thoroughly it addressed the needs of today’s youth. The amount of research, input and involvement from parents,
educators and professionals was clear. I wish that it had been in place when my children were in school. It would have been
extremely valuable for them to have had what they were learning at home reinforced at school.

I just wanted to write to say how important and thorough the 2015 sex ed curriculum has been. It was developed based on a wide
range of psychological, sociological, and pedagogical research and in consultation with many community groups throughout the
province. In particular LGBTQ youth are some of the most at-risk youth in Canada, and need to be represented in the curriculum.
Even a cursory glance at the literature shows how the prejudices of homophobic and transphobic parents lead LGBTQ youth to end
up homeless at a rate far higher than that of other youth (see: Ilona Abramovich (2012), “No Safe Place to Go LGBTQ Youth
Homelessness in Canada: Reviewing the Literature,” Canadian Journal of Family and Youth, 4 (1)). The least we can do as a society
is to refrain from neglecting and pathologizing them in the classroom as well. Knowing that they're not alone keep people alive to
someday thrive. This is not hyperbole. A recent survey of trans issues in Alberta found that almost 65% of trans youth have
considered suicide (see: Wells, Kristopher, H. Frohard-Dourlent, E. Saewyc, et al., Being Safe, Being Me in Alberta: Results of the
Canadian Trans Youth Health Survey (Vancouver: Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Centre, 2017), 2.)That said, I
know governments are seldom phased by evidence or humanity. Still, I hope you working for the Government of Ontario may take
this to heart in some way.

I want a comprehensive program that is current. It needs to be inclusive. It needs to cover everything from abstinence to cyber

consequences. We need at the very least the 2015 curriculum. More for sure, but nothing less. Our children need to be prepared to
function in this society.

navigating sexuality in a digital age. It is for their protection!The Conservative government is wasting taxpayer money by returning

My son will be beginning school during the mandate of the current provincial government. It is unacceptable to me that he will not
be taught using fact and evidence-based lesson plans which follow best practices in the field of human health and well-being. It is
unacceptable that the reason for revoking the updated health curriculum is to score political points, with no consideration for the
education and safety of the children in the school system. The school system does not exist as a negotiation tool for politicians; it is
an institution which ought to give children guidance using the best and most up-to-date information possible and to work in tandem
with parents and communities to prepare children for real-world experiences, including higher education, employment, and
interpersonal relationships. The health curriculum update should not be abandoned because the realities of the world make some
people uncomfortable.

Please reinstate the 2015 curriculum, which was already well-researched and addresses the needs of today's students very well.I
am extremely concerned that by reverting to the previous curriculum, even for the time it takes for new consultations, students will
not learn the facts and skills ( e.g. how to give/understand consent and how to stay safe on the internet) they need. By all means,
spend more money on new consultations if that allows you to make good on a campaign promise but for the love of Pete you can
do that while leaving the updated curriculum in place! Why endanger kids if you don't have to, eh?I will support strongly any
teacher or school board who continues to teach the 2015 curriculum. I wish my child had had the benefit of the new curriculum but
instead she was underserved by the 1998 curriculum, In conclusion, please reinstate the 2015 curriculum. Thanks for reading and

I am writing as a concerned citizen in regards to the changes to the sexual education curriculum that Lisa Thompson has recently
proposed. The decision to reinstate the 1998 curriculum would be disastrous, dangerous, and irresponsible. The curriculum
reinforces ideas of shame and negativity toward basic bodily functions, encourages toxic power dynamics in relationships, and
ignores basic tenets of consent.When I was a young woman growing up in Ontario, I was not taught about consent, body
autonomy, or agency. This directly fed into how men treated me, and how I allowed myself to be treated. I cannot even fathom the
impact the curriculum had on my LGBTQ+ classmates. The sexual education curriculum that was instructed in the public schools of
my youth was misinformed, exclusionary, and made a number of damaging assumptions, even about gender-conforming,
heterosexual students. It does a great disservice, as well, to the men in the classroom, who go on to believe their inappropriate
behaviour is acceptable. Even today, young professionals who work in sexual health education were indoctrinated by a sexual
education curriculum that is nearly as old as they are, one that relies heavily on religious and socially conservative values that
simply do not reflect the modern diversity of this province. There is sufficient (and indeed excessive) evidence to suggest that
inclusive and representative sexual education programs are beneficial to students and parents alike. Not only that, but there are
legal and social precedents in this country and in this province to back overturning the decision to revert to a curriculum from the
90s.Changing the curriculum to eliminate these essential ideas would be abhorrent and unacceptable.

we must help our children to make better decisions by teaching them statistics and how they are being influenced by advertising

would make better decisions.We should include topics on human biases and how our brains have a tendency to use heuristics and
biases to make quick, not always correct, choices.

The curriculum, notably the updated Health curriculum as opposed to the outdated curriculum the PC party has resurrected, is
perfectly acceptable for my child. I find the Premier's position and the implementation of a "snitch" line to be reprehensible and
abhorrent, only serving political goals promised to a small (but vocal!) minority of stakeholders less interested in educating the
children on Ontario and more interested in supporting a conservative ideology that is out-of-touch with the realities of the 21st
century. The Premier has only served to exacerbate a problem his government created and is now pitting parents against teachers
(many of whom are parents).

I have grave and significant concerns about the provincial government’s direction to parents to report teachers who may mention
topics ostensibly only covered by the 2018 sex Ed curriculum and not covered by the outdated interim curriculum they have
imposed. As a parent and tax payer I feel this ‘for the parents’ push is a misuse of public resources, the College’s resources are,
and should be, focused on and committed to receiving and responding to legitimate and serious concerns and complaints from
parents about misconduct of teachers or school board officials. The notion of reporting and policing the topics that teachers may
discuss with their students, perhaps even in response to explicit questions which they ethically cannot and should not avoid, is
terrifying and Orwellian. I have concerns about the broader impacts this would have on teachers’ ability and confidence in being
able to teach and engage in meaningful dialogue and discussion in a classroom setting where the underlying principles of respect,
dialogue/debate and critical thinking should permeate above all and throughout all objectives and mandates of provincial curricula.

idea. Don’t be hesitate of change. Don’t be scared of girls being empowered. Don’t be scared of a healthier, more accepting future.

Please do not put us back into the dark ages again. Students need to learn about various lifestyles. This is the 21st Century & it's
totally acceptable for people to be in homosexual relationships. And students need to know about sexting, pregnancy, social media
awareness, and self-worth. Please have a sex ed curriculum that is inclusive and up-to-date. Anything else is disrespectful to the
LGBTQ community and the future of our province.

This curriculum feedback page is an anonymous complaints portal. It is completely inappropriate for a government to create a
platform where people can complain about teachers, schools or the curriculum and not have to provide their names, addresses and
any contact information so that they may be held accountable for anything they say. I certainly hope this doesn't constitute a
thorough consultation process since it only seems to include parents. What about educators, health professionals, experts from
curriculum topic, child development experts and mental health professionals? Shameful. This government is actually hurting people.

It is dangerous to use a sexual education curriculum from the 1990's. This knowingly endanger kids through neglect, by not
teaching them essentials about the realities of being a young sexual being. Sexting is a thing, folks. And NOT talking about it is
dangerous. You're not giving children essential tools and knowledge that will help them navigate this reality in a way that keeps
them safe.Likewise, not talking about LGTBQ is danger. The 1990's curriculum fails to provide support to young LGBTQ kids who
need it at a critical time. We're talking about preventing suicides, here. Like, hello!??!?! Kids are dying. And you're worried about
whether they'll be good little Christian or not. Puh-lease.It's flawed logic to think that:1. NOT talking about LGBTQ will make it go
away.2. Talking about it will "make" a student LGBTQ. As though, if they hadn't heard about it sex ed, they wouldn't realize it's a
thing and so would stay straight. This is so illogical.

I am concerned that the current curriculum is being used as a political wedge. The content was created in a manner consistent with
other school subjects -100% of parents are not consulted on any subject’s curriculum - and was not written as part of a secretive,
partisan process, as the current administration publicly argues. Education, particularly that which protects children from sexual
abuse, should never be used as a political tool. This in itself is shameful. The idea that parents will fill the gap in education is
unrealistic. Many parents leave sexual education up to schools and do not themselves teach their children. Others may raise their
children more ideologically. It is important to have a comprehensive sexual education in public schools based on expert consensus.
Experts decide other subjects’ curricula and no one minds this. Realistically, children will fill the gaps in their sexual education from
the internet, including from online pornography. This alone is reason for schools to keep on top of a modern sexual education
curriculum. I hope the current administration realizes this matter should not be politicized, listen to those who are more learned on
this subject, and move on to the more pressing issues our province is facing.

about sexual consent advanced dramatically; and Ontarians as a whole got over the homophobic/transphobic nonsense that used to
ruin so many lives. Quit wasting our tax money and bring back the 2015 curriculum IMMEDIATELY. It's evidence-based, age-

I am concerned that recently elected officials will prevent teachers from using the most up to date sex/health education curr iculum,
and has also halted development of updated courses in several subjects. The government refusing to use evidence-based methods
after consultation with experts to provide the best education is offensive to me and I absolutely demand the 2015 sex education
curriculum be reinstated, and currently halted course development projects be restarted. The government should not bend
education to groups that support discrimination on the basis of gender and sexuality, or groups who wish to censor information
based on religious motivations. They already have the power to do this through alternative education choices, and the public
system does not exist to serve their biases.

As a Christian family in 905-area Toronto, we strongly support the advanced and carefully derived-curriculum that has been taught
recently in our schools around sexual education and responsibility. We have year-olds, who we feel are safe, informed and prepared
for the world they encounter now and in the future due in no small part to the curriculum they have received from our public school
system. We are deeply opposed to the recent regression to previous forms, and are frankly baffled at how the new Ontario
government thought it could first revert to 1998, admit that was wrong, then go to a 2010 revision, and then admit that more
consultation was needed. Political cock-ups are not new to Ontario, but the Ford Tories are lowering the bar every week, even while
parliament is in recess. Please don't use our children, (as the premier put it) "as pawns for grandstanding and political games" -
and then insult your province by saying that we objectors will not be tolerated.

The reversion of the sex ed curriculum and cancelled updates to the Indigenous curricula are detrimental to all Ontario students. It
is unfathomable that we would teach children as if they lived in a time long before gay marriage was legalized, before social media,
and before events like the Ghomeshi Trial. Parents are, as they always have been, able to request that their child not be present in
the classes that discuss any subject matter with regards to sex education that they are uncomfortable with or do not support. When
there are options ready for those who are in disagreement, it is irresponsible to refuse countless students the opportunity to learn
what this updated curriculum offers. Along with the restoration of the currently used sex ed curriculum, I am asking for the
reinstatement of the government's commitment to the Indigenous curricula in Ontario. It is the responsibility of all Canadians,
regardless of age, to continue to engage with Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) recommendations. To take this
conversation out of the classroom is to deny young students that possibility. This regressive approach to inclusion does not
represent the concerns and needs of many Ontario residents.This is what is best for the future of Ontario and all of our children
living in contemporary society.

The changes were long overdue and we can’t delay further. Most of the opposition to the curriculum comes from bigoted
perspectives that have absolutely no place in public discussion. Kids need to feel safe, accepted and understood in our schools. Our
children’s education and preparedness for the modern world ought not to be a political tool to appease a conservative constituency
who doesn’t want to face the fact that the world has changed. Our children live in 2018, and their education should reflect that. The

I am concerned that consent, sexuality, cyber security, mental health, gender identity and other information from the 2015 health
and physical education curriculum is not being taught at schools in Ontario. Children need to be taught the information necessary to
be safe and well-informed in the 21st century The 1998 (or 2014 curriculum as the PC government is calling it) is a disservice to
children and making them vulnerable. Yes, parents should be teaching this information but not all parents/guardians do. And not all
students have parents/guardians, or parents/guardians who are informed or willing to share this information. Both
parents/guardians AND teachers can teach this (as well as other subject areas).

I am very concerned the new provincial government is reverting back to the old, outdated 1998 Physical Health & Education
curriculum. Our province's children deserve to be PROTECTED from online predators. They deserve to UNDERSTAND how to protect
themselves from STIs and unintended pregnancy. They deserve to be given the tools to GIVE or REFUSE consent for any contact.
This government needs to listen to sexual health experts, medical experts and responsible parents like myself and continue to
endorse the 2015 Physical Health & Education curriculum. Anything less is a slap in the face to your citizens and is hiding from your
responsibilities.

subjected to bullying because their classmates are not taught that they exist and have the right to be treated as respectfully as

The updated sex ed curriculum introduced by the previous government was a much welcomed and needed change. My children
have had nothing but excellent feedback and have expressed how excellent it has been to learn current information and have
proper discussions about families, sexuality, gender - rather than the misinformed nonsense they heard previously in the school
yard. I am extremely concerned as a parent that my children are going to be robbed of such an important part of their education by
a completely backward, outdated, misinformed and misguided Rob Ford directive.It is appalling to think that we are taking such a
huge step backwards, and that a "Tattle Tale" site would be created to "squeal" on our outstanding teachers who are taking a stand
against such a horrific change to the curriculum. Shame.

Going back to a 1990s curriculum is ridiculous! Children have far more access to technology and they need help analyzing and
responding to what they see on a daily basis. They need to know how to react when they're being preyed upon by online predators,
how to resist peer pressure to "sext" and what constitutes consent. Unfortunately, too many parents aren't teaching them these
things, either because they don't have time, they're unaware of what's going on, or they are technophobes. And it doesn't matter if
religious people don't like it: there are homosexuals and transgendered people. There just are. And kids who are experiencing these
feelings should have some notion of how to deal with them.

I have no real concerns about the current curriculum. I do feel like we could do a better job of teaching students about Indigenous
history and the issues that indigenous people face in this day and age. However, I would like to know why the government thinks
that diversity, inclusion, tolerance, consent, abuse prevention and internet safety are not important topics for our children to learn.
I would also like to know why a government that campaigned on the promise of fiscal responsibility is scrapping the most widely
consulted curriculum that Ontario has and is promising to spend money to consult on that same topic.One more thing, why are we
not getting rid of the separate school boards. It is absolutely absurd and a waste of money for Ontario to have a Catholic School

At summer camp my children were participating alogside transgender and non-binary campers who were identifying as young as 4
years old. It is important to me that they be prepared for these complex situations in their school classrooms, from Kindergarten to
graduation. They should be taught to respect and support their classmates, and the non-traditional families that are in every school
community. I would also like to see more indigenous culture and history in the whole curriculum, in particular respect for elders and
the environment as teachers. I think Math teachers should be determining the best way for children to learn mathematics, and that,
while I am interested in my children's education, teachers are best equipped to determine curriculum.

how a small group of regressive troglodytes are imposing their backwards, restrictive views in ways that will almost certainly have
massive negative impacts on the sexual health and wellbeing of Ontarians. I'm also worried about the unbridled show of hypocrisy
given the removal of a discussion of anal sex - given that it's been removed by a man who so clearly has his head shoved in that

own children about LGBT issues, consent, cyber bullying, internet safety, etc. I worry my children’s peers are not going to be taught
the same thing. You are working to further marginalize already marginalized children. I commend any teacher disciplined becau se

I am writing to share my concern about the inappropriate, unprofessional way Ford's party is using our students as pawns in their
sensational political game. Have you asked any students what they think about this curriculum and their school experiences?
Although, you think that you enjoy this reaction to this topic, the confusion and conflict that you have created will be your political
embarrassment and demise as a result. Do not threaten educators. Listen to them as well as the the multitude of parents that are
currently writing you and the health professionals that have already written you to express their disagreement to the decision to
return to the antiquated curriculum and the process you are using to do so. The educators of my local school board are
professionals and care deeply for my children. As a parent, I want them to be empowered to use their professional expertise and
judgement to meet the learning needs of my children. I want them to be able to discuss all of the topics and content that was in the
most recent health and physical education curriculum....not the one that you are calling the 2014 curriculum....it was actually
written in the previous century; we have not been fooled.

The method in which children are being taught math is unacceptable. Children go to high school and especially university expected
to know certain information and they are not prepared (I would know I did engineering I had tutors during the entire year because
I was not taught elements they assumed we knew. Other students from Alberta already knew the curriculum-integration is the key
example.) Another issue is that elementary school teachers are unqualified to teach math. He was taking examples from practice
books we found at chapters/indigo book store and was using them as test questions. As part of teachers college, a requirement
should be to pass a standardized test that includes math up to grade 9 so we ensure teachers and qualified. This will also eliminate
the amount of unemployed teachers in the province - basically make it much harder to become a teacher or use specialized
teachers for math and science and not some gym teacher. Also this learn by yourself method that is currently being used does not
work. My child struggled a lot in elementary school. Once I explained math the way in which I was taught (the old and CORRECT
way) and told her to ignore everything the teacher was saying her marks exponentially improved. Students from Alberta for
example are much stronger in school than those from Ontario. They were the top students in my engineering program having
already learned curriculum up to second year university back when they were in high school. We should be turning to them.

I am deeply concerned that students receive a comprehensive sexuality and physical health education. Today's children and youth
must learn not only basic anatomy and physiology, but also have an understanding of the complex nature of sexual and gender
relations in society. They must understand gender as a social construct. They must understand how both nature and nurture affect
how we express gender. They should have an understanding of all related terminology before puberty, including acronyms, such as
LGBTQ2S, queer, trans, transfeminine, transmasculine, agender and others as appropriate to the youth and their community.
Before completing their highschool education, they should also have a basic understanding of how the human rights code(s) have
changed to accomodate and respect different sexualities and genders, a basic history of the legal changes in the last century, and
similar topics. They should have had an introduction the important figures in these changes including people like Pierre Elliott
Trudeau who changed laws related to sexual practice, among many others.They must understand sexuality, both in terms of sexual
behaviour and sexual expression, and the related issues of consent. They should be able to describe the mechanisms of sexual
pleasure in the male and female bodies. They must have a good understanding of relationships, how they develop over time, how
they change throughout the lifecycle, and how society supports the development of sexual, romantic and platonic relations. They
must understand consent. They must have a good basic understanding of the legal issues related to consent, and of the impact of
sexual abuse and assault. They should be given opportunities to receive support and counselling for past or current sexual abuse,
and assault. They should have a basic understanding of related psychological terms including concepts such as anxiety, depression,
PTSD, complex-PTSD, vicarious trauma, dissociation, dissociated identity disorder, paedophillia and other similar related issues and
conditions. All children and youth must have a good understanding of the female reproductive system, the changes during puberty
and throughout the rest of the natural lifecycle. They must understand the ovulation cycle, menstruation, and menopause, including
hygiene, menstrual blood collection products. They must understand how conception occurs, how to support and how to prevent
conception, how to prevent pregnancy, early signs and symptoms of a healthy pregnancy, as well as variations such as miscarriage
or spontaneous abortion. They must have knowledge of the processes used to identify a pregnancy, and various decision-making
tools to use when a pregnancy is unwanted, now or ever. They must know about the laws surrounding abortion, about accessibility
issues, consent regarding abortion, the various abortion procedures including when and where they may safely be used. Ideally,
they should visit public health clinics including sexual health clinics and abortion clinics as they are available in their respective
communities. Where they are not available virtual tours should be included in the curriculum. They should have a basic
understanding of the history of birth control and abortion.Children and youth should have some understanding of reproductive
technologies including insemination, in vitro fertilisation, surrogacy and issues related to these technologies including the use of
donor sperm, donor eggs; legal issues related to creating families including those with single parents, same sex parents, and
different sex parents. Children and youth should have basic to intermediate understanding of pregnancy/gestation, labouring and
birthing, and the early postpartum before they complete puberty, ideally before physiological maturity or approximately 14 to 16
years of age. They should be introduced to the various primary care providers in the childbearing year - physicians and
obstetricians, nurses and nurse practitioners, midwives, doulas, and lactation specialists. They should have a basic to intermediate
understanding of the emotional changes throughout the childbearing year in the woman and in her family. All children and youth
should have an understanding of the male reproductive system, its anatomy and physiology, changes with puberty and across the
life-cycle; and effective tools to prevent and transmit infection, the use of condoms, and research related to the male contraceptive
pill, as well as other related male health issues. Children and youth should be encouraged supported to speak with family about
what they are learning. They should be encouraged to reflect on their learning in the subcontext of their religion or spirituality and
cultural practices.All children and youth should be exposed to ideas about sex and gender across the religious and cultural
spectrums. Controversial issues should be explored with care, but must be addressed so that by the time students leave the
highschool setting they will have necessary knowledge and skills to communicate their personal and familial spiritual and cultural
values or mores, explain the foundation for them, and how they compare to dominant Canadian values.

Leave the new sex Ed curriculum alone. Add the older curriculum if you like and let parents and students decide what is best for
them. Social conservatives do not get to choose for the majority on such a sensitive topic. Also, many of us are not religious but it
appears Rev Charles McVety has Mr Ford’s ear. And Tania Granic Allen, who wants to rip out every windmill in the province, does

I completely oppose conservative government’s decision to repeal the modernized sex Ed curriculum. I have spoken to staff in your
office previously about this. The old curriculum is antiquated and any curriculum that does not address consent, same sex
relationships, gender identity and the online world which is full of sexual content at the click of button, as well as sexual predators
and platforms that allow for harassment and bullying, is denying our children - MY CHILDREN- critical information and dialogue that
they and their peers need in order to safely navigate the world in 2018. The governments say that parents should cover this with
their kids. But Ontario parents have said that they want schools to help with these challenging topics. And I can talk to my
daughter, but what about the boy or girl that she may end up with alone in a room or online whose parents haven’t had discussions
with them about consent or bullying. I can’t teach those kids. PUBLIC SCHOOLS create the common ground on every subject,
parents can then take on the role to support their child to excel. The government also say that there was not enough consultation
on the new curriculum, but I asked my MPP’s staff (Robin Martin) to provide me with a comparison - what is enough? What has
been done to consult on other new curriculum in the past 15 years in Ontario? I have not received and response from her staff, but
I believe that in fact there has already been more consultation on this piece of curriculum than ANY other new curriculum that has
EVER been introduced. If this is wrong, The government should provide me with the evidence. If it is true, then The government’s
new consultation process is a HUGE misuse of public funds and resources. It is wasteful and ideologically driven, rather than being
fiscally responsible, which is probably the only platform on which the Conservative party ran that had any value or merit and yet
you are not practicing this. Moreover, I have grave and significant concerns about the provincial government’s direction to parents
to report teachers who may mention topics ostensibly only covered by the 2018 sex Ed curriculum and not covered by the outdated
interim curriculum that has now bee. imposed. As a parent and tax payer I feel this ‘for the parents’ push is a misuse of public
resources. the Ontario College of Teachers resources are, and should be, focused on and committed to receiving and responding to
legitimate and serious concerns and complaints from parents about misconduct of teachers or school board officials. The notion of
reporting and policing the topics that teachers may discuss with their students, perhaps even in response to explicit questions from
students which they ethically cannot and should not avoid, is terrifying and Orwellian. I have concerns about the broader impacts
this would have on teachers’ ability and confidence in being able to teach and engage in meaningful dialogue and discussion in a
classroom setting where the underlying principles of respect, dialogue/debate and critical thinking should permeate above all and
throughout all objectives and mandates of provincial curricula. In short, I think the conservative government’s actions and
approach regarding this curriculum are irresponsible, wasteful, unethical, and frankly frightening. I’m scared for my daughter who
is missing out on critical education, scared for her teachers who will be afraid of open discussion on matters that come up in their
classroom, scared for young people who may be unsure of their gender or sexual identity who will continue to suffer from some of
the highest rates of violence and suicide, and scared for other children whose parents do not feel equipped or prepared to ta lk
about real health and safety issues that our children face in 2018. And this

I am not a teacher. Nor to I work in any way, either directly or indirectly, for any school board. I want my children to learn the
modern curriculum. I want them to be safe, informed, and to live in a society where students understand and respect consent. I
think that children should be made aware of the physical, emotional, and cultural diversity that they will need to navigate as they
grow up in a world of pervasive social media, and complex messages. His opposition to the sex education seems to me to be part of
an opposition to education and critical thinking in general. The only people who benefit from repealing this curriculum are abusers
and bigots. I think it is extremely important for children to be taught the following: Grade 1: hygiene and hand washingGrade 2:
tooth brushing and flossingGrade 3: accepting differences, being inclusive, communicating openly, listening, showing mutual
respect and caring, being honestGrade 4: physical and emotional changes of puberty; review of personal hygieneGrade 5: the parts
of the human reproductive system; strategies to manage stressGrade 6: self-concept, building confidence, recognizing and dealing
with stereotypes regarding gender roles sexual orientation, gender expression, race, ethnicity or culture, mental health, and
abilitiesGrade 7: making decisions about sexual health; communicating about delaying and abstaining from sexual activity,
communicating consent

am also concerned that this government has created a tip line for ratting out teachers for using the 2017 curriculum when it hasn't
even had the basest foresight to issue copies and material for the curriculum it wishes teachers to teach.I am the father of a young
daughter and although I am extremely aware of these threats and more than prepared to teach them to her, she's but one kid out
of tens of thousands that needs to be informed about matters of the digital age and of consent.To the Honourable Lisa Thompson,
MPP and Minister of Education, I want you and your government to reflect on this radical unprogressive decision. If this regression
is allowed to proceed, then ten, fifteen, twenty years from now, young victims of sexual assault and online bullying will lay their

Education Minister Lisa Thompson said in a statement. “Our end goal across all of these activities is simple: create an education
system that respects parents while preparing our students for success.”As a parent that has no problem with the new curriculum, I
do not like that my rights are being violated. I want my child to be informed by their teacher.

The "new" twenty year old curriculum will not prepare my children for the realities of 2018 and beyond. Social media, sexting,
online presence, LGBTQ+ and consent are crucial components of being educated. Your decision to roll back to an outdated
curriculum is dangerous and a waste of money. Students need fully current, reliable and non-biased information on health and
development. Not every family is in the position to provide this education -- please reconsider this ridiculous decision and reinstate
the 2015 curriculum.

We need to introduce an opportunity for students to engage in “community based learning” where those interested can learn from
people who have been in their shoes in the recent past. The relationship between the teacher and student is integral to every
students’ success, and with large classes and teachers teaching multiple disciplines, like chemistry, grade 9 science, physics at the
same time, students are often neglected and MANY go through the education system without learning essential skills they need to
succeed.To elaborate on what I mean by “community based learning” consider Pathways as an example. It’s a great organization
but difficult to get in, and many students go through secondary school without even knowing it exists. For topics such as financial
literacy, it’s important for students to truly connect with the “teacher” AND their fellow colleagues who are attending the session for
exactly the same reason. If a high school student is anxious about entering post-secondary and about how they are going to pay for
it, it would be extremely valuable for them to hear from a recent graduate about how they managed their finances and paid down
their student loans. That’s just one example of how financial literacy can be taught in an engaging way that’s truly relevant to what
students are going through!I’m extremely keen on creating an after school program for students to attend financial literacy sessions
for free and hopefully one day we can provide sessions to adults as well. Please contact me if the government is truly willing to
prepare students and young people for long term success. Programs such as ours will help our kids stay off the streets and away
from drug abuse and illicit activity.

finish what you started. In the event that you are unable to recover the infinity stones, I have a list of alternative MacGuffins that
should work to the same effect. For example, I have in my possession five of the seven legendary dragon balls - the full set of
which grants the user any wish they want. I would happily sign over my wish for this purpose as I can simply use the dragon radar
to find them again in a year's time.Yours truly,A concerned parent.

The current phys ed/sexual health curriculum introduced in 2015 and taught up until the 2017/18 school year is relevant and
necessary. Medical terminology for body parts, diverse family dynamics,avoiding risky sexual behaviours, open discussion regarding
LGTB youth and dispelling myths are important pieces of our student's education. We have these frank discussions in our home, we
know it's not happening in every home. We must take the opportunity to fill in these gaps in students' knowledge. When we all start
with a common base of knowledge we move toward a better understanding of our world as a whole. Parents who don't want this
taught at school are usually the same people who are too uncomfortable to talk about it at home, creating vulnerabilities for those
students.

grades must learn in age appropriate ways about social media, cyber-bullying, sexting, consent, gender, tolerance, and inclusivity.
The 1998 curriculum delegitimizes LGBTQ kids as humans, fomenting self-loathing and devaluing their worth in society. I support
all teachers who teach the 2015 curriculum. We need experts in education to decide what should be included in a curriculum. I do
not want other parents deciding what my child should be taught. If some parents don't like what experts suggest, then they do not
need to send their children to public school.

"We will not tolerate anybody using our children as pawns for grandstanding and political games." - Doug Ford, Aug 22., 2018This
is the most hypocritical statement I've ever seen in my life. Trying to take back a curriculum document that took many years to
revise, to one that is TWO DECADES old is the most ridiculous concept ever. This is not helping our children. Parents, teachers, and
school boards WERE CONSULTED in the 2015 document creation. There's a lengthy process to get a new curriculum in place. Does
Doug Ford know about that process? Does he realize that he's wasting MORE money and using all of our children as pawns in his
grandstanding and his political games? Does he realize that we see through his BS and know that this is all a front, to get parents
and the general public to push back against teachers, who are doing what is best for their students every single day in class? Does
he realize that he's using this to cover up all the other BS he's been spewing since before he was elected? No, of course he doesn't.

My concern with the "current" curriculum that the Ford government has demanded be taught (the rolled back 1998 curriculum) is
that it was not developed in this millennium. It does not reflect the interests of the majority of families in this province, unlike the
more current and more fair 2015 curriculum, it was not developed with public consensus. The 1998 curriculum says nothing of
social media, cyber-bullying, sexting, consent, gender, tolerance, inclusivity, and it delegitimizes LGBTQ kids as humans, fomenting
self-loathing and devaluing their worth in society. I'm not okay with a curriculum so out of touch with modern societal norms that
would try its best to foist us back 20 years.The 2015 curriculum has my full and wholehearted support, as do the teachers who do
such an amazing job of using it to help our kids become wonderful, thoughtful, valuable, inclusive humans.

A six year-old in the school where my mother taught (before the new sex ed curriculum) was being raped by his babysitter. It
wasn't discovered for months and months because the child did not know how to articulate that something wasn't right, didn't even
have the vocabulary to tell anyone where it hurt. The harm caused by canning the sex ed curriculum is not hypothetical. It has
happened before. If you are working for this snitch page, understand that you are an enabler of child-fuckers. Think about that.
Think about children being raped. Are you proud of yourself? You're so desperate for a paycheque that you're willing to put children
in harm's way?

Educating children about current (not archaic) sex education is vital to their development. So many things have happened in the
last 20years. Children should feel safe and know they are getting the best education possible by teaching them CURRENT material.
Apparently Ford doesnt think kids need to be taught current material. He isnt concerned about the well being of children and their
right to know what's going on in 2018. We parents entrust our children in the care of schools. We parents pay school taxes and we
parents need to ensure that our children are being taught proper material. Were not in the 50' where sex is taboo. We are 2018
and our children deserve a better education and not something that dates back 20+ years ago.

Sex Ed in the Ont. 2015 curriculum includes the following points which are not in Doug Ford's antiquated 1998 sex ed.1. Real
names for body parts- a change child-abuse investigators have said is necessary. This is in Grade 1. 2. In Grade 3 the kids learn
about same-sex relationships. I think they really learn this on their own when they already have 2 same sex parents themselves or
they see kids picked up at school with 2 same sex parents. This was obvious when my kids . Same sex marriage has long been
legal in Canada. It is downright common. 3. By Grade 4 they learn about consent and being extra careful online. 4. Masturbation is
discussed in Grade 6. Makes sense to me because that's about the time it starts to happen. Might as well understand it. 5. Grade 7
kids are warned about sexting, sexually transmitted diseases and oral and anal sex. I think it is wise to introduce all of this at this
time in an educational environment because today, any kid with access to a phone or computer can see all of this in an
instant.There's more, but those are the most 'controversial' aspects of the program and it all makes perfect sense to me. Unlike
most of the critics, I have read the entire curriculum and frankly, there is a ton of updated health information in it that has nothing
to do with sexuality. The people who are objecting are living in a pretend world where kids aren't already exposed to this stuff from
many sources. Let's keep sex ed smart and make sure our kids get the facts. I am hoping my son, who is now in the Halton Board
is taught the 2015 version.

we have 2 kids in the public system . In elementary both of our kids were told to learn the "new math" because we were told "it's
faster." Except it was more confusing because it didn't build on fundamentals. Since when do we not teach times tables? or basic
arythmetic? instead we expect them to do complex formulas on using "base 10" method. My other issue is with EQAO testing, can
we please quit wasting our teachers time in prepping our kids for a test that tells us nothing! All these tests do is stress our kids out
and cut into learning time. My kids are learning more than what a tests tells them to, and the rankings are not accurate. You want
to save money? cut EQAO out of the equation and instead invest in more arts education.

There is nothing wrong with the updated curriculum. It actually teaches about the human body, about what to call body parts and
about what children are actually wondering about. It doesn't keep them wondering about their bodies and if what is happening to
them "normal". The people who are freaking out about this new curriculum have never actually read it. They are parroting points
told to them by their so-called leaders that are inaccurate. Getting rid of the new curriculum is doing a major disservice to our
future generations. Kids should be taught this at home? Sure, I'll agree with that. But they're not. They are being kept in the dark
about their own bodies by ignorant parents who are too afraid and/or uncomfortable to properly address their children. The premier
should stop listening to squeaky wheels and actually read the curriculum himself and then make a judgement.

I find it disconcerting that the provincial government would propose to use an outdated programme from 1998, barely patched up
to 2010, in place of a thought out and researched programme that was developped with consent from parents.This is simply
grandstanding from the PC party to appeal to a small party base who wish to return to the halcyon days, where we literally did not
know any better and before any of the modern day complexities existed. I am enraged that my tax dollars are being wasted in this

I am greatly concerned that the progressive and well-researched curriculum put in place by the Liberals is now being pulled out.
They need to learn the proper names for their body parts. They need to know about gender identities and sexual diversity. My kids
come from an LGBT home. They deserve to hear about their family structure in the classroom. As a survivor of sexual assault, I
also feel it is crucial that children learn about consent, as well as bullying and social media. I am enraged that these topics are
considered questionable by the current administration. I am also enraged that parents are being encouraged to tattle on teachers
who feel it is important to teach these topics. I will stand in full support of any teacher who decides to remain with the previously
updated curriculum rather than the garbage being proposed by the conservative government.

The curriculum implemented by the previous government must remain in all schools. Every child has a right to be taught the reality
of today's society. Any parent who disagrees with their child learning that it is ok to be different should home school their children.
By choosing to retract the curriculum you will cause harm to children who rely on the education system. Education is more than
math, science and reading skills...it is about teaching them to function in this society to the best of their abilities and providing a
path to success. I fully support the educators in my children's school. They have been doing a fantastic job for many years. The
current PC/Ford government still has a lot to learn with only a few months on the job. I do NOT support the proposed changes to
revert the sex-ed curriculum back to the previous version.

to learn in the class room. We cannot go back on a curriculum when we know for a fact that there is more out there and it needs to
be taught. Whether they use the information or not, at least they are educated on it properly rather than the false information

The 2015 update to the curriculum was not enough as far as I’m concerned. It was based on science and medicine not religious
beliefs. Religious beliefs are not meant to take away from education. I have actually taken the time to read the curriculum from
front to back unlike the religious nut jobs who are fighting it. As far as I’m concerned it still didn’t cover enough. We live in a day
and age where everyone has a smart phone in their pocket and a world of knowledge at our finger tips but this isn’t good when a
child can learn about sexual health the wrong way. Stop trying to appease religious groups who don’t care about child rape. Who
think that teaching abstinence keeps kids from sex. Give kids the tools they need to make smart choices about their bodies.

as other important issues that are stated in the NEWEST curriculum (2015), however, I realise that my children may not be
comfortable coming to me with all of their questions. Teachers are available to answer these questions without judgement, and to
TEACH them. I have full trust in my children's teachers that they will echo what I teach them about what it means to be inclusive of
all and to grow to be respectable men. We do not need to go backwards in what our children are learning about these important
topics, now that they have access to anything - even misinformation - at the click of a button.

I feel a lot of the concerns over the new curriculum are unwarranted. We live in an ever diversifying society, and the updated
curriculum reflects that. Stepping back from the new curriculum could expose the Ontario government to costly law suits based on
discrimination. Both the Canadian Human Rights Act and Ontario's own Human Rights Code prohibit discrimination based on sexual
orientation. By omitting sexual education regarding non-heterosexuality, we would be discriminating against homosexual, bi-sexual,
pan-sexual people. And discussion of attraction or sexual activity must include these sexualities. Anything short of that is
discrimination.

Which curriculum? You are being deliberately confusing here.My concerns are with the out-of-date curriculum that Ford wants to
force back on students, teachers, and parents. It is entirely out of touch with the realities of a young person's life in 2018: a life
that includes an unlimited access to on-line pornography, and one that requires information and knowledge about actual consent.

My daughter asked the sex education teacher what sexting was and the teacher said she is not allowed to teach students what
sexting is and to ask her parents instead... so instead my daughter came to me and asked, and then I had to explain what sexting
is. Which was an awkward experience to say the least.What is the point of having sex education if the teachers don't even answer
the questions lf the students? They are supposed to teach these things so we parents don't have to.When I complained to the
teacher she said Doug Ford reversed the curriculum and that they are not allowed to teach ANYTHING about sexting and other
topics that isn't covered in the old curriculum. So if a student asks a question about those topics, they are now apparently saying
"Go ask your parents."And if I have to answer these questions, for which I am not qualified, then I have to google it... and lets just
say there are certain topics I would rather not be googling.But I don't want my daughter googling those topics either.So if the sex
ed teacher won't say, and I don't know, the next thing I know my daughter is googling all sorts of words on the internet.Which is
COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE.

I am incredibly concerned that our ministry of education is planning on punishing teachers if they continue teaching the 2015 health
and physical education curriculum. The curriculum was well researched and was developed with a lot of public consultation. As a
parent, I loved that this curriculum gave teachers a way to talk about human sexuality in all its layers and complexities. It gave
small children the tools they needed to speak up about the safety of their bodies. It gave older students a way to think about their
own sexualities and identities in a non-judgmental manner. Now my kids are going to be taught using an outdated curriculum that
addresses none of this? Not all parents are capable of doing this, and in fact many are still homophobic, transphobic, or unwilling to
acknowledge the importance of sexual health. I support any teacher using the 2015 curriculum.

One of the best things the Liberal government did was to update the sex-ed curriculum. To scrap it without any regard to the
realities of 21st century society is a terrible move that shows that this government has no regard nor concern about the health of
young people in this province. My concern is that by returning to the 1998 curriculum is shortsighted and is bad public policy.
Furthermore, to set up a snitch line to report teachers who teach the correct curriculum is what a despot does and I hope your
snitch line is flooded with calls and reports because it will mean that teachers are doing their duty to their students. In short, this is
a regressive policy based only on misinformation and not science and I hope every single teacher in this province will ignore the
Premier's efforts to silence those who know better.

fully comprehensive sex ed curriculum, that INCLUDES conversations about LGBTQ issues, tolerance of differences, consent, cyber
bullying, sexting, online predators, masterbation, healthy sex lives and healthy choices. Anything less is denying a generation of

complaint about a teacher, they should behave like an adult and approach the teacher or the principal to discuss their concerns. It

individuals who have no educational qualifications. Back off and let the professionals do their jobs.

media, multiple gender identities and how to stand up (in person and especially online) to bias, hate speech, harassment,
objectification and assault. Our youth need more science based lessons on body positivity, dysphoria, gender fluidity and strategies
for managing mental health. Our young people need reality-based, modern healthy knowledge to help them cope with the images,
behaviours & concepts of racism, sexism, misogeny & worse that they face. They need real world tips for managing assault &
bullying. The 2015 curriculum is a good start but we need to go much further!

curriculum which is being implemented, I have many concerns. This curriculum does not address modern concerns, does not reflect
the gender and sexuality spectrum which we now embrace here in Canada, and does not rise to the challenge of helping children
with applicable problems, from internet security and basic bodily autonomy all the way to how their bodies work independently and
with others and how to respect individuals who may be different from themselves. This reversal of curriculum is a disservice to our

because if they don’t tell them, it must not be happening. So classrooms will no longer be able to open that discussion door for

My eldest daughter was in high school during the 2000s. She was taught sex ed with the old curriculum. Because it had no
discussion of consent, she didn’t know how to say “no,” didn’t know she COULD say no. The boys didn’t know she could say “no”
either. She was pushed much further, much faster into sexual activity than she wanted, because none of our children had the
language to talk about boundaries and consent. She contemplated suicide.Kids will die under this curriculum. They will die, because
you have taken the language they need to imagine another way. Look in the mirror. If my daughter had died - - can you live with
yourself?

I have children in the elementary system and I have concerns that by NOT teaching the 2015 health curriculum, that my children
and their peers will not be receiving information appropriate to the issues of this day and age. My children's teachers are
exceptional, compassionate individuals who constantly seek to create safe and inclusive classrooms for my children and their peers.
This government's decision to revert to an interim document that does not address issues such as consent, is doing an incredible
disservice to our children. If the mandate of the government is to ensure the success of students, I struggle to see how our
teachers can fulfill this mandate if they are being threatened by this government if teachers, based on their professional judgement,
discuss these very important, crucial issues. I am dismayed and concerned that this government is not listening to those
professionals who work with our children every day, but instead are pandering to a minority base of fundamentalist right-wing
individuals. I will be discussing my support for the 2015 curriculum with my children's teachers as well as my children's friends'
parents. I feel that we need to support our teachers and their professional judgement within the classroom.

I have zero concerns with the curriculum that is currently being taught and I think it should NOT be repealed. This is a waste of
time and taxpayer money. The Liberal government has already thoroughly consulted parents, students, teachers and experts on
this matter. To be pursuing this issue because of a select group of people is outrageous and a misuse of taxpayer money. Nothing
needs to change from the current curriculum. Above all, it puts children in harms way. The update to the sex-ed curriculum was
long overdue and addressed many issues facing children nowadays and addressed many issues children faced alone and silently
years prior. Leave the sex-ed curriculum alone and start doing something useful with your time and our taxpayer money.

I strongly support reinstatement of the Wynne-era health curriculum. Ontario's children need a 21st-century curriculum that
acknowledges the existence of sexual orientations other than heterosexuality, ensures that younger children know the proper
names of parts of their anatomy, teaches older kids comprehensively about safe sex, makes consent a central focus, and discusses
sexting and cyber-bullying. The Ford curriculum is a major step backwards, and one that we do not need.

the roll back of the 2015 HPE curriculum. The current curriculum put forth by the Ministry of Education to be taught for the 2018-19
school year is limited and does not cover important issues and ways for teachers to address the realities of student's lives and
experiences. Issues of consent, equity and sexual abuse prevention are public health issues and the current proposed curriculum is
lacking what the 2015 curriculum offered students and educators. The Ministry and Government's rhetoric and way they have
approached this issue is also disrespectful of teachers and antagonistic which I feel will negatively impact classroom environments

I am very concerned that your government plans to take away this important, necessary curriculum. It is retrograde and dangerous
to go back to the old health education curriculum, knowing that our culture and our kids' learning and living environments have
changed significantly over the past 20 years. I was so happy when the new/current curriculum was introduced, because there are
so many students who will not learn what they need to know at home, and who may suffer as a result of misinformation. The
curriculum is not radical or age-inappropriate. I have reviewed it and my kids have not learned a single thing we would not have
willingly discussed - but not every child has this opportunity to learn basic, necessary facts like accurate terms for body parts, the
many different kinds of families and relationships that make up our world. Shame on you for trying to take this crucial information

Hi there, I'm not a parent but I'm an older brother who has concerns about how you are deliberately maiming our current
curriculum in order to attempt to cater to a conservative voter base. My younger siblings have a right to a proper education and
your action to take away our current sex education curriculum will make life more difficult for all of them. Students have a right to
an up to date sex education, yet your government has decided to remove any new additions from the past years and have ended
on a curriculum with no references to the internet and no explanation of how informed and enthusiastic consent should work.
Students need to learn proper sex education in order to live healthy, happy and safer lives. Sexual abuse decreases when proper
consent is taught. Unwanted pregnancy decreases when students are taught the importance of contraceptives (which should appeal
to you seeing as your government seems to want to hinder people's abilities to have abortions). There is only good that comes out
of a proper sex education. Also: I think you need to look back at school curriculums and read up on world war 2, Because the Nazis
also created systems for "concerned citizens" to rat out political dissenters and those who go against the status quo. In conclusion,
you're hurting children by changing this curriculum and also there's a lot of irony in including consent in the form you have to
submit a complaint but not your curriculum.

"friends" who like the games he is playing. I am not equipped to supervise every minute of his online time. Hearing at school the
ins and outs of online activity and the pitfalls and dangers of online use is something my son is ready for...and he needs it. I can
advise to an extent, but children need reinforcement of concepts such as these from school. They need to hear the messages
alongside their peers in order to reinforce them and to understand this is not just their parent being a nag.It is appalling that my

gender expression vary independently of each other, or that there are non-binary genders, or that gender exists on a spectrum.
The “Gender Unicorn” and “Gender Bread” charts are propaganda tools to brainwash children and have no place in a public school
classroom.

dare you take away my daughter's education from being taught about current realities in our society. The liberal goverenment did a
great job putting forth a curriculum that addressed the needs of cyberbullying, acceptence and guiding teachers on how to address
questions that students ask. Shame on you Doug Ford for putting our students and teachers in the position that you are. Wake up

I believe the current curriculum is inclusive, current, and identifies very important aspects of relationships, gender representation

I believe it is already very extensive and accurate. Keep the current curriculum or consult experts on the subjects (not conservative
opinions or religious groups that have self-interest in mind) to improve content for a 2018 model including extensive study about
the cyber aspect of sexuality.

Re: Health (Sex-Ed) Curriculum.I am so impressed by how teachers at my son's school (Sir Adam Beck) approached the health ed
curriculum. We received a letter that clearly detailed topics. It gave us the opportunity to talk to our sons before and after their
learning. There is not a single issue we had - our concern is that all this good material our sons learned is stopping. I grew up on
schools where it was implicitly and explicitly taught that a "normal" family had a married Mom & Dad with a few kids. I'm so glad
my sons won't have to have to re-learn from biases like I did. My oldest son alked about various stages of puberty naturally and he
learned specific examples of consent and issues online and with social media. I can't imagine how a government would think
scrapping an entire curriculum, before new consultations, makes any sense. Of course curriculum should continue to be updated,
but not reversing it to an even older curriculum.

I am a parent and I am extremely concerned. I do agree with the anti-bullying, anti-sexting curriculum but this 26 gender identity
and safe space stuff just baffles me. During WWII we were sending young adults - 18 year old kids to storm the beaches in
Normandy and kill Nazis. People could handle this because they were raised to be tough. Now it's, "I'm offended, I need to run to
my safe space and cry because somebody used the pronoun 'He or She'". What are these kids gonna do when they become adults
working a real job and there is no safe space to run to because a customer called them Sir or Ma'am. What are they gonna do when
some Nazi like Trump declares war on our country, run by a crybaby prime minister? Are they gonna go hide in a closet and cry
until the American soldiers come in, rape and torture them, and throw them into the showers to be gassed by the millions? Trump
has effectively declared a so called "trade war" on us, citing national security concerns. How long before he sends troops to invade.
Getting offended is useless, you have to fight fire with fire, not submit and go cry like a 2 year old, despite what our previous
gender confused premier beleived, who nearly bankrupted the province with this nonsense. I was bullied constantly in school,
verbally and physically and I never once took crap from anybody and I'm a stronger person because of it. Sure I was offended, but
I stood up for myself. If I didn't I wouldn't be alive right now to tell about it. Just so we are clear there are only 2 genders, male
and female. Anyone who goes to a doctor to have their genitals mutilated needs their head examined because last I checked your
gender was determined by your chromosomes. You can be an effeminate male or a butch female but that doesn't change your
gender. I am glad that Doug Ford has disposed with this nonsense, and I'd appreciate it if we could stop adding letters of the
alphabet to describe people who are other than heterosexual. I have noticed the media has started resorting to numbers and
symbols. What the heck is LGBTQS2+????? Stop it already! It's more confusing than quantum mechanics. No wonder children's
grades are crashing, this is incomprehensible!

know the very minimum of how to have healthy relationships, to learn about respect and inclusiveness, about consent, and how to
be critical thinkers. I hope they will use all that they've learned to make sure they never elect a government that would offer a
"snitch" line to circumvent the due process that their teachers, and all other professionals, already have in place. Oh. And I just

gender expression and identity vary independently of biological gender. (There is no place in the public school classroom for Alt-Left

they reach an appropriate stage in their relationship to whatever extent they both feel comfortable.4) The notion that it is in any
way acceptable or normal to transition children under the age of eighteen from one gender to another. No child has the maturity or
life experience to make such a critical decision. (We need laws against what is essentially a form of child abuse.)

The 2015 curriculum is amazing. It has equipped my kids with knowledge about consent, inclusiveness and health matters. It has
given my kids a safe space and platform to discuss sex, sexuality, reproduction and inclusivity. Kids also learn about different
family dynamics and that’s so cool. If parents are uncomfortable or disagree with the current curriculum, can’t they just “opt out”
instead of the curriculum back peddling to 1998? I HAVE ZERO CONCERNS about the current curriculum. I’m EXTREMELY concerned
that it’s being eliminated.

I am very concerned with our govenerment's decision to repeal the health curriculum. It has been over 20 years since the 1998
curriculum was used. The topics are lacking the relevant issues that the students are experiencing in 2018. With rising STI rates
and issues such as internet safety, cyber bullying and consent, along with the inequities of our diverse groups, going back 20 years
with the curriculum is harmful to our youth today. I have grave concerns that the people making these decisions are just doing it in
order to go against the previous government instead of listening to the professionals regarding the health of our students.

15 years ago when I was an underage little girl I was sold and sextrafficked. I didn't know words to describe the abuse I was going
through, I didn't know about consent, I never even heard the word rape when I was a kid. The system failed me as it fails so many
woman. If you refuse to teach consent, or talk about rape and how it is bad, you are teaching men it is okay to rape. This isn't
about politics this is about children being able to voice what is happening to them. If you continue to use an outdated system that
has resulted in so many being sexually assaulted then you are continuing to accept that it is okay for children to be sexually
exploited. there is a very real evil in the world and that is the indifference of Good Men, if you remain indifferent to it you are the
cause of it, you are supporting rape and abuse so please stay out of the educational system and away from any child.Our children
need to know consent, sexuality, ect. Otherwise they will continue to be abused because they don't know better like I didn't know.

inclusive, communicating openly, listening, showing mutual respect and caring, being honestGrade 4: physical and emotional
changes of puberty; review of personal hygieneGrade 5: the parts of the human reproductive system; strategies to manage
stressGrade 6: self-concept, building confidence, recognizing and dealing with stereotypes regarding gender roles sexual
orientation, gender expression, race, ethnicity or culture, mental health, and abilitiesGrade 7: making decisions about sexual
health; communicating about delaying and abstaining from sexual activity, communicating consentI feel these are valuable lessons

I am very fortunate that i am able to speak openly to my kids openly about sex, drugs as much of my ability, but the truth is i don't
know everything. As mother of a old boy, it is crucial in keeping him and as matter of fact all kids informed from internet exposures
(safe predators), sexual transmitted diseases, violence (domestic), drugs, human trafficking etc. Also times have changes greatly
with gender identity (transgender, homophobia or just about the LGBT). Although i am fully open with my kids, I am not aware of
everything that is out there and having teachers explain things to kids in a safe environment is extremely important to me.

putting children at risk. Not all parents are comfortable teaching their children the proper anatomical names and body safety but
this is crucial. I have worked investigations where sexual assault has taken place but charges couldn't be laid due to the child not
being able to properly identify what happened to them. Please go back to the previous curriculum to keep our young and vulnerable

around tech, have the proper names of their anatomy which is scientifically proven to help them see through the lies of predators,
for trans, children of colour, lower class, and queer kids to be made visible through dialogue, and for their education to be brought

The unveiling of the updated sex ed curriculum was an exciting thing for me to read as the parent of . Consent was now going to be
part of a public discussion with our kids while they were learning about the physical changes in their bodies. Respect for people as
they live their lives was also key. How to deal with sexting and online abusers was also included. Taking this curriculum out brings
us back to human sexuality as being a conversation about Fallopian tubes and nocturnal emissions. It helps children not at all when
dealing with abusers, who as awful as it is, are sometimes also the parents or other trusted adult relatives. The announcement that
the province will be going back to the old, outdated curriculum is awful and will do more harm than good, leaving our kids at risk
for dangers they could navigate better if they had the information that is already available in the new, updated curriculum. Keep
the 2016 curriculum.

parent and teacher here. Read your "2014" (..... 1998....) curriculum. it won't work for the vast majority of parents, kids, and
educators. It stinks of bigotry, sexism, and head-in-the-sand-ism. Concerned, highly concerned, that kids won't see themselves, or
their current realities, reflected in the material that was written before they... and some of your MPP's... were born. Please
reconsider. Waste of taxpayers' money to throw away the hard, good work of the government that came before you. If you really
cared about taxpayers and ctizens, and not just the special interest lobby groups that paid your way to a tenuous victory, what's
wrong with taking the perfectly good new curriculum and revising? Shame. And this spying on teachers and schools, through this
ridiculous tattle-tale form, may just end up backfiring on you.

with the proposed removal of indigenous content from history and replacing the revised sexual education curriculum which was
FINALLY updated to include consent, diversity and educated discourse on sexual health for ALL with 1998 material. It’s 1998

As an Ontario resident and recent high school graduate now studying at an Ontario university I’d like to complain about the PC
government’s insistence upon using the public curriculum as a means of pandering to socially conservative fringe groups. Your
approach of attacking teachers first and consulting and studying later will leave children unprepared to deal with modern issues like
relationships, sexting and pornography that I can tell you from experience they will begin to experience at a young age. Garnering
support and donations from your most socially conservative supporters simply isn’t worth allowing these kids to face issues they
don’t understand because their parents are uninformed and/or pushing an agenda that is simply unsustainable in 2018.

As a student, I am deeply concerned, and frankly, scared, about the new reverted Health and Physical Education Curriculum. It
takes away essential topics such as consent, healthy relationships, gender identity, and same-sex/'non-traditional' families. I feel
that this leaves students vulnerable to abuse, and facilitates bullying of LGBTQ+ students. I understand this is merely a stopgap
until a new curricula can be brought in, however these issues can not wait. This reversion is dangerous, and the 2015 HPE
Curriculum should be immediately restored to prevent harm to students.

A comment regarding sex ed curriculum: I am in favour of a more modern sex ed curriculum than 1998. However, I think topics
such as gender identity, homosexuality, alternate forms of sex and other mature subject matter do not have a place under the age
of 13/14. Kids are easily impressed upon. Obviously I want my children to be taught tolerance and respect for all people. I just
think, for example, that giving a child a false impression that transgenderism is 'totally normal' is confusing and wrong. Teaching
tolerance and respect but don't normalize a tiny proportion of the population. Just 1 example.

Before the 2015 curriculum change, my mother taught kindergarten, including a six year-old who was being sexually abused by his
babysitter. It took months and months to be discovered, because the child didn't have any way to articulate that something wasn't
right in his world, didn't even have the vocabulary to tell people where it hurt. The harm caused by rolling back the elementary sex
ed curriculum isn't hypothetical. It has happened before. If you are working on this snitch site, you need to understand something:
you are an enabling child-fuckers. When you go to work every day, think about little kids being raped. Are you proud of yourself?

My wish is that the 2015 sex ed curriculum is taught to my boys. I want to give them as much education as possible about their
sexual health. I have given them a good base. We have age appropriate conversations about sex ed. I read them age appropriate
books about their body. There will be a time when my boys will no longer want to talk to their mom about their bodies. They will no
longer want to listen to me about how to keep their body clean. They will no longer want to play games were we practice listening
for different ways to say no (like our tickle game where if they say stop, I "respect the no" and stop.). There are things I don't
understand. I was in my last year of college when I got my first cell phone. It was one where you had to push the numbers multiple
times to get a letter to spell out words. Sexting or dick pics or regularity video chatting is something I have never done. I have
never been bullied online. I have never actively tried to find a friend or partner online, and then met them in real life. I am not
educated enough to talk to my boys about this. I hope that the school board will teach my boys about mental health, gay or other
none traditional families, cyber safety, and more.

I have a serious concern about rolling back the sexual and health education curriculum to the older version. This curriculum needed
to be updated, and the 2015 update meant that our children were learning important things that will help to keep them safe in our
current world. Children need to be learning things like the proper scientific names for their body parts, and the body parts of the
opposite sex. They need to be dealing with topics like gender expression and identity in school. Many families are not equipped to
provide their children with exposure to these realities of our world. Schools are. Children need to be learning about cyber safety.
We have seen a huge rise in sex trafficking amongst middle school and high school students. Parents can't keep up with how it is all
working to keep their children safe. Schools can. This curriculum also dealt with bullying, which we know is a terrible issue on the
rise. Children need to be dealing with this topic in a group setting, not only in the home. Only by working through these issues
together will they be able to overcome them together, and teachers, as neutral parties, are in a better position to act as their
guides.

Knowledge is power. By going back in curriculum you are stripping our children of important knowledge and leaving them
powerless. Consent, and knowledge of the diverse landscape our children live in is important to be taught. You can't just bury your
head in the sand and hope it all "goes away". Children need to understand and know the world around them in the digital age.

The 2015 Sex Ed curriculum is the only appropriate choice for education for today's students. To use an outdated curriculum would
be to deny children valuable information that will protect them from unwanted pregnancy, sexual assault/rape, STIs and STDs, in
addition to higher risks of mental illness, low self esteem, and suicide. Ontario's curriculum should reflect all of the families that live

I believe that the 2015 health and physical education curriculum supports the development of our children in an environment and
world where there are many scary situations. The program delivered to our son was age appropriate and set the stage for great
conversation at home as a follow up. I feel that the government has been untruthful with the public by saying parents were not
consulted in the creation of the 2015 document. I was actually part of the email solicitation for input. Further to say we are going to
go to the 2014 curriculum will be used is false as it's really the 1998 document. I fully support our educators to use their
professional judgement to meet the needs of their students and continue to serve as positive role models for our children.

Math and problem solving based methods aren't effective and needs to include more traditional component so they are more

The fact that you are forcing teachers to teach a sex ex curriculum from 1998 is completely ridiculous. You are not listening to
parents, if you were you would NOT be reverting to a completely irrelevant and downright harmful curriculum. The MAJORITY of
parents have made it clear that they agree with the 2015 curriculum. You need to let our teachers do their jobs and keep your
ignorance out of my child’s classroom. And for the love of God, stop stupidly referring to the curriculum as the “2014 curriculum”. It
is 1998 curriculum that was still being taught long past it’s relevance in 2014. That you keep trying to pass it off as a more recent
curriculum is shameful. You are an absolute disgrace and I am ashamed I would sincerely hope that the college of teachers would
not support any kind of disciplinary action against its teachers if they have the courage to continue to teach the proper curriculum
to our children. Signed: who is going to be negatively affected by this terrible decision.

I would like to see more examples of same sex couples in textbooks, course materials, and library books. I have read 10% of the
population is somewhere on the LGBTQ2S continuum, and would like to see this reflected. Actually, given the under-representation
of LGBTQ populations historically, it seems to me it is the responsibility of educators to compensate for this, so teaching 15-20%
might be useful. Also, if we could make sure history classes address LGBTQ issues historically, that would be great.

age-appropriate information in a way that my kids understand and appreciate. The government seems to be pandering to a
minority of parents who have ideological or conservative religious views contrary to what is being taught. These parents have other
options (e.g., withdrawing kids from these specific classes) and should not be allowed to endanger my children or public health
generally based on their outdated and biased views. Any real, additional consultation will bear this out. As a government you'd be

some are imagining they are another gender and fearing how they might ever be happy. The last thing they need is to be taught a

her about rotary telephones. She needs to be taught about consent, about LGTBQ issues, about cyber-bullying and cyber-sex, and
the ramifications of both. We refuse to allow this government to drag our children back to the dark ages. The people who are

I am concerned that the curriculum currently being taught will be replaced by a twenty year old document that does not reflect the
realities currently faced by students. I am also concerned that pandering to the religious right will result in changes to the
curriculum currently being taught that exclude already marginalized members of our society.

The 2015 curriculum is absolutely needed and necessary to be taught. I want this for my children. We need this to help teach
consent and cyber bullying and many other necessary topics for 2018. We need to keep our girls safe and we need to teach our
men to be their advocates and be real men. 2015 curriculum is what I want to see as a parent.

I trust my children's teachers and I want them to teach the newest curriculum. You are undermining and undervaluing the
enormous stresses children go through, not to mention the teachers' professional judgement by repealing the Health curriculum
and going back into the dark ages. STOP WASTING TAXPAYER MONIES, stop creating a crisis where none exists. You should be
ashamed of your attack on this very important issue.

I'm not a parent, but I am an uncle of Ontario students. I don't want them to be taught outdated curriculum. I want them to be
prepared with healthy information about consent and sexual orientation and gender identity. I want them ready to live in the
current world. I want them to be able to avoid the pitfalls that my generation experienced because we had inadequate sexual
health education.Up-to-date and accurate sexual health education is what our young people need, starting early.

I have a young son who will be entering JK in 2020, and I want to ensure that he will receive up-to-date, relevant, comprehensive
health education. I am gravely disappointed with the decision to revert to the 1998 curriculum, for a number of reasons. 1: Studies
have shown that children who do not learn the names of their body parts are at a higher risk for sexual or physical abuse, and have
a lower rate of sharing that abuse with a helping figure. Withholding basic information about body parts puts children at risk.2. I
believe that teaching children about consent is paramount to health. For younger children, knowing they have ownership over their
bodies can be a protection against unwanted touch; for teenagers and young adults, the ability to ask for, receive, withdraw, and
negotiate consent is as much a part of sexual relationships as learning about birth control or pregnancy. This is a skill that should
be taught in school, in the same way schools teach how to write a resume or how to play soccer. 3. The lack of gender and
orientation diversity in the older curriculum is troubling. Children need to know that trans and queer families exist—they may be
gender non-conforming themselves, or come from a non-traditional family of origin. Failing to talk about this topic means that
queer kids do not see themselves reflected in what Ontario considers a person or a family; don't leave them out. 4. Children are
beginning puberty at younger ages than ever before. Holding off on vital information in the interest of "keeping them pure" or
whatever is simply withholding information. Not every parent is equipped to teach their children the details of sexual development;
not every parent wants to. But regardless of their home life, all children deserve to have access to trustworthy, straightforward
information.5. The world changes. The Ontario government and school system has a responsibility to ensure that their curricu la is
up-to-date and reflect the real world, not the world some people might wish to live in. Going back to an old curriculum means there
are gaps and holes, which will be filled by misinformation, gossip, and simple ignorance. Our kids deserve better than that.

It is absolutely dreadful that the Ontario government believes that educating students with curriculum that was written in 1998 is
appropriate. This is unconscionable. I would hope the college of teachers will support teachers who wish to support the well-being
of their students. Are teachers to ignore questions from students when asked why another child has two mom’s? Or why a little boy
is dressing like a girl? Or do they just ignore and allow students to come to their own conclusion while at the same time allowing
the students who are LGBT2Q to feel like they don’t belong. In 1998 the internet was barely in use by students, now it is rampant.
The 2015 curriculum helps to address these issues. This curriculum was well thought out with input from many sources including
parents. Please support children and their teachers by shutting down this site and letting the leader of our province know it is no
longer 1998!

I have serious concerns about the use of the OLD curriculum in our schools this year. The new curriculum which has now been
displaced, was fantastic. While many parents such as myself have the means to teach our children about consent, identifying body
parts by their proper names, sexuality, gender and birth control, many parents do not have the capacity to do so. Please bring it
back. Most parents did already voice that they wanted these changes. You are taking education backwards and our children will

through our schools not knowing how to talk about sex or understand when things are not ok or growing up without knowing
anything about diverse gender expression and sexuality (and that this is normal and not shameful). We already know how
damaging a lack of age appropriate sex ed is. I know if from being a girl who was sexually assaulted and couldn't name it or know I
wasn't wrong for years and years. Shame on this government for putting teachers in this position and our children's safety and

The fact that you are forcing teachers to teach a sex ex curriculum from 1998 is completely ridiculous. You are not listening to
parents, if you were you would NOT be reverting to a completely irrelevant and downright harmful curriculum. The MAJORITY of
parents have made it clear that they agree with the 2015 curriculum. You need to let our teachers do their jobs and keep your
ignorance out of my child’s classroom. And for the love of God, stop stupidly referring to the curriculum as the “2014 curriculum”. It
is 1998 curriculum that was still being taught long past it’s relevance in 2014. That you keep trying to pass it off as a more recent
curriculum is shameful. You are an absolute disgrace and I am ashamed I would sincerely hope that the college of teachers would
not support any kind of disciplinary action against its teachers if they have the courage to continue to teach the proper curriculum
to our children.

then open this up to discussion, have our mpp’s have real, engaged public forums and opportunity for feedback. Allow our mpp’s to

and similarities that make us all just people. Discuss bullying and consent. The more we understand the better off we all are,
differences become matter of fact and children are the best at matter of fact understanding with little to no preconceived notions
about how people/things "should" be. Sadly "should" be comes from adults like ourselves unless we embrace the innocence of
learning about everyone for who they are. School is a great setting for this too :)

families and correct anatomical names are SO IMPORTANT for children to be able to protect themselves AND be a good person to
others in their community. The 1998 curriculum is outdated and does not provide kids with the information, knowledge and tools

I think the curriculum that was introduced and throughly consulted on with parents in 2015, is the curriculum that should be used.
To go back to the 1998 curriculum is stupid. Consent, proper names for body parts, diverse family units, gender id and safety need
to be part of this education. The Ford government has no business interfering in what was an excellent curriculum being taught for
3 years. Since you're pandering to religious zealots, you're doing more harm by reverting back to the old curriculum, which was
done without consulting. This is what concerns me.

I am in favour of the 2015 curriculum being taught. I think it’s critical for our children to be learning about consent, cyber bullying,
correct anatomical language, and to learn about LGBT families. I will support the teachers at my children’s school if they choose to
teach these things in the classroom.

My belief is that all students should be taught the importance of showing respect for all people,regardless of their skin colour,
sexual orientation, religion, etc. If students are not given opportunities to learn about and discuss these issues it leads to fear of
the unknown. I believe strongly that the 2015 curriculum should continue to be taught as it has been thoughtfully written with
advice from many types of professionals and collaboration from teachers and parents. I hope that my two sons and their
classmates will be able to learn about issues like consent and sexual abuse so that they are able to make wise and informed
decisions as they get older. I also hope that my sons continue to show respect for the hard work of their teachers, who spend
countless hours of their own time preparing lessons. Having the government display such strong contempt and disrespect of
teachers only serves to make things more difficult within the classroom.

I fully support the 2015 curriculum. As a PARENT in Ontario, I would much rather have a possibly uncomfortable, yet open and
honest conversation with my kids about LGBTQIA issues, consent and cyber bulling than to have them learn from their peers on the
school yard (like I did); but not all parents are educated enough or willing to do so with their kids. I want our kids to be safe,
informed and empowered to make educated decisions when it comes to relationships and sexuality. Whether we like it or not, it
isn’t 20 years ago. Times have changed. Time to stop bowing to religious, bigoted right wingers who don’t have our kids’ best
interests at heart. There are vulnerable kids out there who are being cyber bullied right now. LGBTQIA children who are frightened
and considering/attempting suicide. Kids need to know they are safe expressing their gender identities/sexual orientation at school.
Especially when they might not be safe at home. They need to know what to do when they are cyber bullied. If someone tries to
sext them. Real issues our kids face today, that aren’t going away. Pretending they don’t exist will not help anyone. It’s time to put
bigotry and transphobia aside and do what’s best for our kids. We fought for Bill C-16 to be passed. We’ll fight for the 2015
curriculum to be reinstated as well. Our kids deserve better than this. The SCDSB has been amazing in learning to be an inclusive
and safe environment for our kids to learn in. I’d like to keep it that way, and I know I’m not the only one. Having a snitch line for
bigots to tattle on responsible teachers who actually care about the well being of ALL of their students is disgusting and
reprehensible behaviour. Please stop wasting our taxpayer dollars on trying to go back in time, and fix the schools, update
textbooks, etc instead. Thank you.

The new sex ed curriculum should be brought back, not an out-of-date curriculum that is homophobic, transphobic and does not
properly teach consent or anything to do with social media. I do not want my son's teacher to be forced to teach the old curriculum
and certainly not to be punished for teaching the 2015 curriculum. Beyond the cancellation of the new curriculum, the method of
anonymous complaints about teachers for not adhering to a particular ideology (one that is sexist, homophobic, etc.) is dangerous
and wrongheaded. It is also completely absurd that the regressive conservatives claim a lack of parental input into the 2015
curriculum, which included widespread consultations and study. Do not take us back in time please and let teachers teach the 2015
curriculum!

My concern is with the curriculum change and how haphazardly it is being implemented. There should not have been any change to
the current curriculum until consultations were completed and all stakeholders (parents, school boards and teachers) could have
been properly informed and given a clear curriculum.Ultimately, this decision seems to be made hastily and in the name of scoring
political points. I hope that further changes to my child's curriculum will be done with sufficient time and planning.

Let teachers teach. The new curriculum presented by the Liberal government was a much needed update that reflects today’s
realities. Most importantly, it teaches the concept of consent. Yes, parents should be teaching their kids these things but so many
don’t. No I did not vote Liberal. This is not political. It’s common sense.

It it VITAL that children learn about consent, healthy relationships, and the dangers of the internet and the digital age, as well as
same sex relationships, and gender identities in school. This change was widely researched and intelligently dealt with issues Surely
if a parent believes the earth is only 6000 years old we wouldn’t resort to glossing over the entire geological age of the earth and
discipline the teacher for bursting that bubble? Why would we not incorporate the scientific information about health and human
biology into the classroom? This is nothing more than a transparent move to pander to right wing religious voters who remain in the
18th century when it comes to human sexuality. Ontario teachers deserve our support rather than pandering to the whims of
government when it comes to this curriculum. Any teachers not supporting the new curriculum risk the health and well-being of
their students and as a parent I will not stand for it.

I am concerned that the PC government is ignoring science, progress, and putting the lives of children at risk to pander to their
conservative voters. What about the rest of us? What are you doing to support LGBTQ children? What are you doing to prevent
sexual assault and teach consent? Children have access to the internet everywhere they go, 12 years olds have killed them selves
because of specialized cyber bullying. And you think a curriculum from 1998 will help? Shame on you. Every suicide, every rape or
sexual assault, every child who’s mental health is harmed from bullying, it’s on you. DO SOMETHING! Bring back the curriculum
that consulted parents AND professionals. At least until you have had time to develop your so called “better solution.” This is a
pathetic example of conservatives living in the past and putting people at risk for the sake of their politics. It’s shameful.

The 2015 H&PE Curriculum should be the guidance that educators and parents need to trust for our children today. Please do not
revert back to a 20 year old curriculum that does not reflect today's realities. Our school community, including our parents' council,
endorses the most recent and most relevant curriculum and feel that the new consultations will simply confirm the desire of parents
across our province that we must put our faith in our partnerships with experienced educators. Please respect the parents and the
expertise of the many stakeholders who have already provided extensive input and consultation to ensure that our children are
appropriately educated based on a sound, research-based curriculum that was already implemented in 2015.

I was a student in the DPCDSB Elementary program from 2000-2010. The world has changed since I was a child, with children
online at a much younger age, leaving them much more at risk for cyberbullying and tons of information. The Health and Sex Ed
curriculum should evolve with the society that students live in, and all information should be presented in a safe controlled
enviornment. It would be a severe disservice to the children to teach them a curriculum from 20 years ago, and I fully support all
teachers who wish to teach the modern version.

Hello,I am concerned about the upcoming school year for our children in regards to the sex-ed curriculum that will be taught. If we
use the sex-ed curriculum from 2010 for grades 1-8, and the curriculum from 1998 for ages 10-12 as Premier Ford has stated, I
fear that it is our students who will suffer the most. In a world of increased use of technology and awareness of other sexua l health
concerns, children may not be taught about issues like sexting, what sexual harassment and abuse are, or what consent is. This
may lead to their harm in the future if they were to be blackmailed, their pictures put on the internet by sexual criminals, cyber-
bullying and even lead to suicide as we have seen in the past. Additionally, it is important that children learn the names and
purposes of their own bodyparts, what is normal and what should be of concern as many parents also lack this information. As our
teenagers come of age, they will attempt to have sex, take drugs or drink alcohol and it is also important that they learn about safe
sex to prevent pregnancy, STDs or the dangers of taken drugs. Finally, I am concerned that there will not be a focus on LGBTQ+
and this may lead to a lack of understanding or acceptance of people who are different than themselves. I hope this can be cleared
up soon by the Ontario government. I am aware that these are also concerns of teachers as we are nearing the beginning of the
year and they are having to look for materials that have long been scrapped as they are not up-to-date.

I am so disappointed in this current government and their decision about the sex-ed curriculum. Years of consultations took place
to establish the one that came out in 2015, that includes parents. I'm not sure who you're trying to accommodate, the regressive
parents who are narrowminded in their opinions around sex? Even your "new" interim curriculum doesn't go far enough in
educating the children on what they need to know in order to make sound decisions about their bodies and relationships. I'm
disgusted in this website you have created to "snitch" on teachers who are doing what they feel is right, what is right.

I want my kids to learn the current curriculum that was introduced in 2014. It was developed after years of consultation and input
from experts in education and sexual health. If there are a small number of parents that are unhappy with it they can ask that their
child not be present for the lessons, which has always been an option. There are people now in power who would want parents to
believe that kindergarten kids are being taught explicit things about sexual intercourse, which we know is not true. That's just fear
mongering. Kids need to learn about consent, sexual health, body norms, sexual orientation, etc. at the ages which the current
curriculum has set out.

them that it’s ok to like people of the same sex and about gender identity , etc . There is an appropriate age for everything , but
they should be aware . Please do not go back to the old curriculum . It teaches them nothing .

I am extremely concerned about the roll back to the 1998 curriculum. My daughter is entering year and deserves to be taught that
she is entitled to her personal space, and that consent is required prior to any physical contact. She deserves to learn that her
aunts’ marriage is valid, normal and loving. She deserves to be armed with knowledge about her body so that she has the strength
to stand up for herself and keep herself safe. I’m horrified that her educators will no longer be able to reinforce these messages.

plans created with the curriculum available to them at the time of planning. 2- Will my students unlearn the last week of school?3- I
AM complaining that the posted 1998 H&PE curriculum makes no mention of consent or online safety 4- complaints against
teachers should be made to OCT, it is part of their mandate5- complaints against the government should be made to MPPs, it is

I am upset that the government is rolling back the health curriculum to the outdated one from the 90s. Students and teachers
should continue to have discussions about consent, online safety, inclusion and equity. Students need to know proper terminology,
information and knowledge about sexuality. It is absolutely essential that all students see themsleves and their families reflected in
the curriculum. By not discussing non traditional families and not talking about LGBT issues, biases and hatred, we are essentially
making some people feel invisible and we are not reflecting Canadian values and Canadian rights and freedoms to which we are all
entitled. Any parent can opt their child out of parts of the health curriculum, so there is really no need to opt every child out of it.
Keep the curriculum the way it is, don’t bring our province back into the “olden days”, we need to evolve and live in current times.
Let teachers do their jobs, and continue to respond to students with professionalism and the freedom to make educated decisions
on how best to instruct their learning.

Its APPALLING that youre even considering removing the current curriculum, let alone doing it without consultation. The newer
curriculum has had input and consultation with health care providers, child.psychologists, teaches, parents, and other experts over
YEARS to make the best.possible health curriculum for our children, and you scrap it based on biased opinions. This isnt about
parents, ots about the health and safety of our children. The future suicides of lgtbq students are on your hands. Future sexual
assault on our children is on your hands. Future cyberbullying, on you. EXPERTS WERE CONSULTED AND YOU THINK YOU KNOW
BETTER?! Read a book, educate yourself. Attempt to put prejudices aside and actually LEARN. PLEASE. FOR OUR KIDS.

The current sexual education curriculum is excellent. I fear and am greatly disappointed by the idea of rolling is back to the early
days of the Internet.The availability of sexual content and the proximity of sexual predators has increase since 1998 and to repeal
the sex ed curriculum is a grave mistake. I fully do not support a repeal of the sex ed curriculum. It is foolish.

This is a disgusting waste of resources from a government that said they would cut the waste. We live in a society where everyone
is equal and welcome to live a happy life how they feel most comfortable and children need to be educated accordingly. There are
safety issues with taking away the updated sex Ed curriculum and I’m disgusted by this government and how it’s acting. I support
any and all teachers who teach the updated sex Ed curriculum and I absolutely do not support telling on those who “defy a dictator”

As an parent of 3, I have concerns that language of inclusion has been taken too far to the point at which biological distinctions
don’t seem to hold the same weight as it used to. Gender fluidity I fear will create greater confusion for children and is nurturing a
culture that seems to be individually focused without public accountability. In other words, “be whatever you want”, promotion,
doesn’t prepare students for the real world where guildlines, policies and collective codes of conduct are expected. I also am
concerned that the curriculum has placed the responsibility on teachers to be primary educators, when the parents/caregivers need
to hold that position in collaboration with teachers. Lastly, the introduction of consent, while well intentioned, isn’t directed at an
appropriate age, where their schema matches the curriculum.

I do not like that the curriculum currently being taught will be replaced by a twenty year old document that does not reflect modern
life and the realities currently faced by students in society today. Online safety, cyberbullying, lgbtq and consent NEED to be
discussed with children by professionals, not just parents. The Doug Ford government should be proposing its own way of covering
these topics in an updated curriculum, but until that happens, keep the newest curriculum in place. The old one just isn't enough!

kids I’ve seen growing up with my own are now at a much greater risk of intolerance and ignorance. Let alone the children who are
currently in grade 1-8 who will not benefit from discussions around consent, and details about sex that are critical as they enter
puberty.I am deeply concerned and want to know that you will still be teaching the kids in my community the modern curriculum to
help them stay safe and understand each other. I don’t want to see suicides increase or abuse or assaults increase because kids
aren’t taught what they really need to know in 2018.

curriculum is a move in the right direction for our province. Shame on the Ford government for sending our school system
backwards. Shame on them for fostering a hostile work environment amoung those responsible for our children by creating a phone
snitch line. And shame, shame, shame, on the Ford government for taking steps to ensure that all the work we have been doing as

issues that are subject to today’s world. I prefer to teach my daughter about those issues at home. I won’t have a problem with
what’s being taught in the classroom as long as I know in advance what my daughter will be exposed to so her and I can decide
ahead of time whether we feel it’s right for her to be a part of or not. I want my daughter to have the option of leaving the
classroom and not being punished or judged. I want her to have an alternative.

Hello,I am not a parent but am the sister of a parent and thus actively concerned with the education my niece and future
niece/nephew will be receiving.Apparently this is a place I am able to submit complaints about the education being provided. I am
sure the idea is that I tell on all the bad teachers who are teaching the blasphemous 2015 curriculum rather than the holy 1998
curriculum Doug Ford has so generously given back to us.I went to highschool in the late 90's. I was, by all accounts, a "good kid".
I never stayed out too late. I never questioned my parents outside of arguing about doing dishes. And I never, ever, experimented
sexually. I depended entirely on my highschool sex ed curriculum to tell me what I needed to know about my sexuality. In short, I
was the poster child for the 1998 sex ed curriculum.I can say, without any hesitation, that it sucks. A lot. Were I more eloquent I
am sure I could come up with a word better than "sucks", but let's face it, the time for eloquence is over when an official like Doug
Ford is elected. Today I am not unfamiliar with sex, but I certainly am still ignorant of so many things that makes me fear it in so
many ways. I am not blaming the school curriculum entirely. Perhaps I could have gone out more myself. Perhaps I could have
asked my parents. But the fact of the matter remains that the biggest potential resource for me to learn more about my own body
failed me. Were I asked to teach my own children, I would fail miserably.I hear sentences like "well it's a parent's job to teach their
children.". But what if those parents come from a culture of rape? What if those parents are abusive themselves? What if those
parents simply don't know because their own education forbade it? Children need a solid and reassuring resource to learn from. And
as much as we love our children, we are not always adept to teach them everything. For instance, I could not teach my niece
basketball. That's why I am glad for gym teachers. I am quite happy to do that because screw basketball.And here is the thing.
They are kids. When they are denied something, they will seek it out on their own. It does not matter how many parental controls
you put on your internet, they will find a way to find out about sex themselves if they so choose. Would you rather they discovered
it through potentially illegal and dangerous means? Or would you rather at least know the source they are learning from? It is
2018. There is so much potential danger from the internet.At any rate, this space is for a complaint and here it is: I do not believe
Doug Ford is fit to make decisions for this province's children. I would ask you review and discuss his future with this province. I do
not want my niece and potential future children to have to suffer because of one man's cartoonishly crazy motives. So please
consider.Sincerely,
Toronto District School Board

I'm concerned that the Ontario government has apparently decided to hop in a time machine and take us back to 1998. They don't
seem to realise that their reckless interference with the fabric of space-time will inevitably result in the destruction of our current
reality and the creation of a timeline in which LGTBQ students are ostracised, abused children won't be able to identify and respond
to abuse, teenagers won't be aware of the protection available to them when they inevitably experiment, students will remain
unfamiliar with their own anatomy, and in general, knowledge that could prevent disease, unnecessary shaming, and psychological
harm will be lost. It's 2018. Put away the time machine and teach the kids properly.

about consent and get the tools they need to identify and avoid sexual predators and abuse. I think my child should learn about
gender identity, healthy relationships and different families so that he can be an inclusive member of the community by learning to
accept all people for who they are. I think consulting parents and communities again after it was already done is a huge waste of
tax payer money. Creating a snitch line reminds of fascism. Shame on you.

Hello, I hope my feedback finds you well. When I was going through public school in the Durham Region in early 2000s the
curriculum that was taught before the 2015 curriculum update was terrible: one of my classmates suffered a decade of abuse,
because they didn't know the fundamental concepts of consent. I was so happy to see that young students were finally being
taught about consent after the 2015 update.By bowing down and bringing this country backwards to 1998, you are putting people
at risk of serious public health problems and sexual violence.I hope you can't sleep at night, especially if you start punish ing
teachers who go above your reduced minimum expectations for sexual and physical education.

I have no concerns about the curriculum being thought. It is educated, fits with its time, has been very well researched and
addresses major sexual topics such as cyber bullying, homophobia, naming the body parts properly etc. Reverting to an old
obsolete curriculum is a disservice to all Ontarians, children and parents and should not be done. I am proud that the 2015
curriculum is so progressive and addresses the real sexual topics that our children need to learn about.

Teachers are being forced to use a curriculum from before there was google. The givernment is forcing teachers purposely put
students in danger. Im concerned abiut rhe negative effwcts this will have on all students. I hope the government gets some public
consultation and experted to draft up a new curriculum soon. Oh wait, that happened in 2015 and because of a few people on the
far right we are back in the stone ages... Way to go wasting our taxpayers money.

The reversal to the 1998 curriculum that was pushed through by Doug Ford endangers my children because students aren’t learning
about consent, LGBTQ+, and equity. Ford and his friends have sold out my children’s education system to reliqgious nuts.

because he doesn't know any better.

My concern is that, because of the ignorant And backward reversal of the latest sex ed curriculum and it's replacement with an
older curriculum, children will Not have the information they require to be safe and knowledgeable about health and sexuality. How
dare you hobble and threaten a generation of children in this way!

I am concerned that the thoroughly updated thoroughly researched curriculum that has been taught for thr last few years is going
to be removed feom teachings. I am concerned that my children will no longer be taught about inclusion, acceptance, diversity, and
the spectrum of humanity. I fear for a world that doesn't believe that love is love, the internet is a dangerous place, consent is
mandatory, and your body is perfect the way it was made. Don't bring us back into the age of hatred and division. That is not the
Ontario our children deserve.

I would like to report the Premier and the Education Minister. I believe they are "using our children as pawns for grandstanding and
political games." They are introducing an outdated sexual health education curriculum and as a parent I want my kids learning
about consent, sexual and gender diversity and the risks of all forms of sexual activity.

I am writing in support of the vast majority of teachers. I am deeply concerned about the government's plan to limit children's
education about their bodies, about consent, about gender diversity and sexual orientation, and about internet safety. I support
OCT and call on our teachers to resist the government's plan to turn children into pawns in a political game.

My concern is with Rob Ford and his backwards platform. Why would someone want to go back in time? To teach things the way
they were taught? Because Ford longs for the days when we didn’t talk about rape culture, lgbt and other “taboo” topics. He takes
the progressive out of progressive conservatives. It’s an assault on education, it’s a disgrace to everyone who’s ever been
discriminated against or sexually assaulted. It’s frankly disgusting. Conservatives and Christians need to stop being so obsessed
with sex and more attentive to sexual health and education.

My concern is that the 2015 curriculum is being pulled and replaced by the obsolete 1998 version. I support teachers doing what is
best for the kids and continue to teach the 2015 version which is inclusive for all families and people. I will continue to support the
2015 currriculum and encourage our school to continue teaching it!

I am concerned that by removing important parts of the sexual education curriculum, such as topics pertaining to LGBT issues,
sexting/online issues, and consent will lead to gross problems in the future for our children. According to the Massachusetts
Department of education, LGBTQ+ youth are four times as likely to attempt suicide, we simply cannot shove their issues under the
rug for the sake of uneducated bigot's comfort. This is Canada. We are Canadians, we need to act like it. Furthermore, it is
imperative all aspects of our education keep with the times. New technologies are here, and as humans do, we have incorporated
sexuality into them. Kids need to be educated on the dangers of using them without safe practice. I end this with an example from
history. In Mexico, in the early 20th Century, the president tried to put in sex education, as well as permit girls to attend school.
The church and conservatives rounded up every teacher they could find who taught this and killed them. Do not repeat history by
witch hunting teachers who want to do the right thing, you'll only be remembered as the villains you're playing the part of.
