St. Louis, MO (KPLR) Chicago public schools are pushing to teach kids sex education as early as kindergarten. Currently, students get their sex education in fifth grade, as most children do in the US. Officials say the curriculum will conform to each age group. For example, kindergarten students through 3rd graders will learn about anatomy and appropriate touching. Fourth graders will focus on puberty and HIV… and so on. Parents who are uncomfortable with the new policy will be able to opt out.
