Do Parents Support Sex-ed?

Parents are the first educators when it comes to teaching their children about health, sexuality, and values. School-based sex-ed does not replace the lessons given at home. Home-based sex-ed and school-based sex-ed are not mutually exclusive. The vast majority of parents know that very well. Canadian research shows that 94% of parents in Ontario support sex-ed in schools, 92% in Saskatchewan, and 94% in New Brunswick. School-based sex-ed is not a controversial issue despite how the media or our politicians sometimes makes it look. The pushback against sex-ed is led by a small number of vocal people in Canada. This is how the personal views of a few can get in the way of all young people getting crucial health information.
