Ontario’s Sex Education Gone {Horribly} Wrong

It’s a sad and terrible day when our children’s sex education curriculum is written with a pedophile-based agenda.

I shutter to even post such information on my blog, and yet to sit back and be silent is shameful.

If you live in Ontario, if you have children in the public or Catholic schools in Ontario, if you have grandchildren in the education system, I implore you to find out what is happening with our province’s sex ed curriculum. And to voice your concerns before it hits the schools this fall.  We cannot sit back and be silent on this issue.



“No reasonable parent would trust a convicted child pornographer with their child’s education,
particularly their child’s sexual education. But if your child will be attending a provincially-funded school in Ontario this fall, you are doing just that. The sex-ed curriculum being implemented in both public and Catholic schools in September 2015 (1),
was developed under the oversight and leadership of convicted pornographer
and former Deputy Minister for Education, Benjamin Levin.

In 2013 Mr. Levin, was arrested on charges related to child pornography.
Just days ago (March 3, 2015), he pleaded guilty and was convicted of three of those charges.
One of the most alarming charges he was convicted of was counseling another person
to commit a sexual assault on a minor. (2)

Terri-Ann I hope all parents know that they can withdraw their children from sex Ed classes. My mom sat in (at school) on our sex ed classes (25 years ago) for grades four and five, and then withdrew us completely from grades six to nine. But in all the years of sex Ed for my sisters and I, we were the only ones whose parents withdrew us. I have been telling parents who are actively teaching their children this area (which does need to be done) to know that you have this right and to not let others dictate how and when and what your children are taught about sexuality.

Jen Heemskerk Just something to think about- as a church family, we need to get to know the local schools in our area. We need to “adopt a school” in a sense, and take coffee to the administrators, and help with their programs – if they need their property tidied up – go and pick up garbage outside, volunteer to mentor kids in any program you are allowed, help do whatever it takes, pray for the staff and students, and build relationships. I have been dwelling on psalm 37 ALOT lately and praying for our society as a whole. God knows and nothing is too hard for Him.

Jen Heemskerk Oh Gillian, my heart has been so unsettled about this as I am a Christian teacher in the public education system. It is my mission field, and there is a purpose as to why God has placed me where He has- I’m at a very high needs/low income school. Although there needed to be changes made, I believe they should have added things like mental health.- as that is what teachers and students (even in primary grades) are dealing with most. As for sex education- I believe that parents should be take seriously their role and responsibilities that come with being parents. The sentiment that we should allow schools to do the role of parents because parents are purportedly not doing the task is not a solution in my mind but a surrender. Please pray for Christian educators within this system- there is an agenda and it’s moral lines need to be drawn.
