Peel school boards roll out controversial sex education lessons

The time has come for Peel students to learn the revised sexual education curriculum.

When the Ministry of Education announced the changes to the health and physical education curriculum the noise generated by some parents who felt the updates went too far made it seem like this moment would turn elementary school hallways into a ghost town.

However, both the Peel District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board say that’s not the case.

“I’m not hearing of a significant number of accommodations or exemptions,” said public board spokesperson Brian Woodland.

Shelagh Peterson, the Catholic board’s coordinator of religious education and faith formation, said she’s unaware of an increase in exemptions this year.
