Sex-ed curriculum does youth a disservice

Lost dreams?
As Community Editorial Board member, Jakki Jeffs, writes, "For almost 30 years we have listened to the more-sex-education mantra."

And where have those 30 years gotten us? "Pills and condoms" about sums it up. We now have a sex-education program that implicitly teaches that sex has nothing to do with love or commitment.

Having ditched love and commitment, it's probably pointless to talk about healthy marriage and family formation. Yet, the Institute for Marriage and Family Canada confirms that a large majority — 88 per cent — of Canadian teens expect to marry someday.

We're doing our kids a disservice? I love understatement.
