Signs Of The Time, Part 67

Throughout the years, I’ve heard Chicago-area residents- teachers included- talk about how screwed-up Chicago’s public school system is.

I am not a “product” or employee of the system, so I really can’t pass judgement either way.

However, after reading the following on the CBS Chicago website this morning, a clearer picture emerges as to why critics might think this way about the CPS:

Some people may think a five-year old is too young for sex education.

Administrators with Chicago Public schools do not.

New to the curriculum this year, mandatory sexual and health education for kindergarten classes.

Back in September 2012, the U.S. Department of Education found 79 percent of Chicago Public Schools 8th graders are not grade-level proficient in reading and 80 percent are not grade-level proficient in math.

Perhaps CPS administrators might want to steer their kindergarteners’ focus more towards reading and math instead of sex ed.

Just a thought.
