A school district in Montana is proposing new graphic sex education curriculum for students as young as five years old.
Angry parents in Helena filled a school board meeting, July 13, to voice their concerns and demand the curriculum be pulled.
The proposal lays out what students should be taught in each grade level starting with kindergarten.
- At that age, kids will learn about reproductive body parts including their scientific names.
- In first grade, they will be taught that a person can love someone of the same gender.
- In fifth grade, kids will learn about different kinds of intercourse and a more in-depth look at sexual orientation.
- In high school, they will be taught that erotic images in "art" help people understand sexuality.
