Doug Ford’s administration is repealing the sex-ed curriculum because some people take issue with people who are gay and other issues.
Ontario’s education minister says the sex-ed curriculum taught to children in the coming school year will be an older version, not the controversial updated program brought in by the previous government.
Lisa Thompson says ministry staff are working to inform school boards of the decision to revert to the curriculum that was in place before 2015.
The new sex-ed curriculum sparked controversy, particularly among social conservatives, when the Liberal government introduced it.
It was the first time the curriculum had been updated since 1998 and included warnings about online bullying and sexting, but protesters zeroed in on discussions of same-sex marriage, gender identity and more.
