Chicago Public Schools to Start Sex Ed in Kindergarten

Students in Chicago pubic schools are taught sex education beginning in the fifth grade, but the Chicago public school system (CPS) wants to begin sex ed instruction at age five.

Parents, who oppose having their young children being taught accurate biology, can opt out so that there children will not be exposed to factual instruction about sex.

According to, kindergarten through third grade would learn the biological basics of anatomy, that all living things reproduce, as well as appropriate and inappropriate touching.

Fourth grade would focus on the biological changes during puberty and HIV/AIDS.

Fifth grade would be taught specifics about human reproduction, contraception and abstinence (as they are already).

The proposed CPS policy says that it follows the "national sexuality education standards" put together by four health organizations.
