Should first graders be taught about masturbation?
Well, an elite New York City Private school is currently under fire, after it was permitted to teach first graders about masturbation during sexual education class.
At the Dalton school, a sex education series called ‘Amaze’ was being taught to first grader about self-pleasuring. After angry parents complained about the issue, they were told that the “health and wellness” lessons were being misinterpreted. Justine Ang Fonte, who teaches the lesson, is also said to have led an explicit “porn literacy” workshop at another elite prep school recently.
The Amaze series is a cartoon which is used in sex education classes for six-year old’s. The video in questioning features a clip of young children talking about touching themselves for pleasure and asking questions about erections and vulva’s.
A spokesman for Dalton in a statement to The Post said:
“As part of Dalton’s comprehensive Health Curriculum for students, a lesson on Gender & Bodies included two evidence-based and age-appropriate videos approved for students 4 years and older. These videos align with nationally recognized methodologies and standards”.
Ziptocrats would be ok with your first grader learning about masturbation at that age?
