The curriculum introduced by the Wynne Liberals in 2015 angered many parents.
The Ford government has kept another promise, announcing that the highly controversial sex-ed curriculum introduced by the Wynne Liberals has been repealed.
In the new school year, schools will go back to the previous version of the curriculum.
That curriculum will only be updated after a “fulsome consultation respecting parents,” said Education Minister Lisa Thompson.
The sex-ed curriculum introduced by the Liberals had become highly contentious, with many parents expressing anger at the information being introduced – including concern about the age that students were being taught the curriculum.
Additionally, there had been a feeling that parents weren’t consulted adequately, which led to the growing opposition to the curriculum.
During both his leadership campaign and the general election, Ford clearly stated that he would repeal the curriculum, and he has now followed through on yet another promise.
