The alleged “justification” for this porn push, I mean “sex ed,” is to curb unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.  Really?  Since when does telling kids to have sex reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies and STDs?

In reality, it appears to be just another vehicle the government can use to sexualize our children.

And how are public schools doing with teaching our kids what we pay them to teach – “reading, writing, ‘rithmetic” – as they used to say?  Not so good.  We are near the bottom of the list of industrialized countries in performance in these and other important areas (which means our schools are spending valuable teacher time and scarce resources on sex lessons but our kids can’t read). 

Are the inmates running the asylum or what?
