New York Sex-Ed Instruction Plagued By Inaccuracies, Bias Says NYCLU Report (SLIDESHOW)

New York Sex-Ed Instruction Plagued By Inaccuracies, Bias Says NYCLU Report (SLIDESHOW).

This is shameful.   According to a study by the NYCLU New York sex ed program are using outdated textbooks,  are still focused on teaching abstinence-only, and largely ignore LGBTQ students.

In addition to much of the teaching across the board being centered around boys’ bodies versus girls’, the report also found that LGBTQ students are largely ignored or stigmatized in New York sex-ed instruction. As Miller references in her op-ed, school districts provide little instruction when it comes to sexual orientation, same-sex couples or gender identify.
