Kensington teacher on county curriculum: Yuck!

A Kensington woman who spent nine years as a teacher wrote a letter to the Washington Post criticizing Montgomery County's veggie sex curriculum, saying that "none of the 'sexperts' really know" what they're talking about, and appearing to argue that MCPS is more interested in advancing a social agenda than teaching kids.

"If the aim is tolerance," she writes, "surely there are better ways of achieving that than pushing kids to explore intimate topics such as masturbation in a classroom setting -- especially when so many students are anxious about their developing bodies."
