The unstated premise here is that there is something dangerous about learning about sex at a young age. I'm not sure that it's completely warranted. Far more dangerous is when you wait to let kids learn things by themselves. I know that I never had the birds and the bees talk with my parents, and neither did most of my friends. We learned it all from each other, older siblings, and TV.

I don't know the curriculum inside and out, but from what I've read it looks promising. I love that they're making an effort to talk about things like sexual identity; hopefully it will encourage a more open and tolerant market place of ideas.

Excellent point and I agree (otherwise I wouldn't think it is excellent haha).

In general, we don't let people "figure out" anything in today's society...if two 15 year olds "figure out" sex, you might not be happy with the crying, screaming, pooping consequences.
