If parents with children in the Peel District School Board don’t like the new sex ed curriculum coming to Ontario schools this fall, they have one option: find a new school board.
Tony Pontes, the director of the PDSB, is making that statement Wednesday. His official speech to teachers and superintendents argues that “if parents have a problem with such strong support for equity and inclusion, the public system may not be right for them.”
Some parents “may choose to switch school systems … if so, that is a price we must be willing to pay.
He cites the Ontario Human Rights Code, and claims that it applies to people of all sexual orientation and gender identity.
Pontes believes that the case is closed on this matter. Do you agree?
And if parents aren’t happy with the curriculum, should they place their child in another school board? What about homeschooling?
