EFC President Bruce Clemenger sent a letter today to Ontario’s minister of education about the forthcoming Ontario physical education curriculum. The sexual education part of the curriculum is expected to be similar to one released and then recalled in 2010 due to parent concerns. The EFC is calling for the 2015 draft to be released to the public and for a more meaningful consultation process to be established with parents. The EFC offers a helpful resource on this issue called Hands Up: Identifying Parents Rights at theEFC.ca/HandsUp.
