OMSA Supports the Current Sexual Health Curriculum in Ontario

OMSA regrets the Ontario Provincial government's intent to repeal the updated 2015 Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum and revert to the curriculum developed in 1998. The current curriculum is rooted in the promotion of respect and diversity, it teaches about differences in sexuality and gender identity, the importance of healthy and consensual relationships, and strategies to safely use social media. To return to the outdated curriculum does a great disservice to the students of Ontario.
