Rad­i­cal sex class to go

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

A RAD­I­CAL sex­ual ed­u­ca­tion course that taught NSW high school kids about gen­der the­ory will be axed by the NSW gov­ern­ment.

Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Rob Stokes will re­place the con­tro­ver­sial Crossroads pro­gram with one that teaches stu­dents how to drive a car and man­age their fi­nan­cial wealth.

The Aus­tralian last night re­ported that a 47-page re­view of Crossroads — con­ducted by for­mer Univer­sity of WA dean of ed­u­ca­tion Wil­liam Louden — said the ma­te­rial was not suit­able for all stu­dents.

Among these was a Year 7 and 8 unit called “Ex­plor­ing Sex­ual Risk”.
