Parents of students at Georgetown's Hardy Middle School knew that the DC Public School system would provide their children with sexual education courses. They just didn't think said classes would involve such graphic content.
This past Tuesday, during a sex education session ran by Metro TeenAIDS, a DCPS contracted organization, 7th grade Hardy students were administered a survey to determine the extent of their sexual knowledge.
Parents feel as though the survey crossed the line and that the questions were inappropriate.
For example, students, some of whom are just 12 years old, were asked if they knew "the difference between oral, vaginal, and anal sex" or if they could “correctly put a condom on (them self) or (their) partner".
According to parental accounts, one student actually asked what the various sexual acts were, at which point the Metro TeenAIDS facilitator explained what they all meant.
