Head of Toronto school board re­as­sures teach­ers on in­terim sex-ed cur­ricu­lum

The Western Star - - CANADA -

TORONTO — With just a week to go be­fore a new school year be­gins, the head of Canada’s largest school board has sent a letter to teach­ers as­sur­ing them On­tario’s in­terim sex-ed cur­ricu­lum still cov­ers many im­por­tant top­ics.

John Mal­loy, the direc­tor of ed­u­ca­tion for the Toronto District School Board, pub­lished a letter on­line say­ing the board is do­ing its best to take the “‘guess work’ out of de­ter­min­ing what can be taught and when.” He says while the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion “has the right to set cur­ricu­lum for On­tario stu­dents,” ed­u­ca­tors are re­spon­si­ble for how it is taught.
