Ontario: debate continues over implementation of sex-ed curriculum in Catholic schools
Catholic World News - April 29, 2010
Catholic leaders and government officials in Ontario remain at odds over the implementation of a sex-education curriculum in the province's Catholic schools.
The Catholic bishops of Ontario have released a statement saying that they will "teach the provincial curriculum from a Catholic perspective." But Premier Dalton McGuinty, who has pushed for full adoption of the controversial program, insisted that all Ontario schools must take the same approach.
"We have a single curriculum when it comes to mathematics, when it comes to history, when it comes to world studies and when it comes to sex education," McGuinty said.
