Crossroads curriculum in NSW schools axed

  • Students were taught that gender is a ‘social construct’ and sexuality is fluid
  • Year 7 and 8 students were allegedly being shown explicit images of sex
  • The Education Minister said not all pupils would be familiar with these concepts 

A radical sex education course for senior students has been axed from schools after a review found it wasn’t ‘suitable’ for all pupils.

The NSW government has decided to dump the Crossroads curriculum in favour of teaching Year 11 and 12 students how to drive, manage their finances and maintain their mental health.

Education Minister Rob Stokes flagged the teachings, which describe gender as a ‘social construct’ and sexuality as fluid, and said it may not be appropriate learning material for all school-aged children, The Australian reports.

According to the review, Year 7 and 8 students were being shown ‘explicit’ images involving sexual practices and sexually transmitted infections.

In other schools a lesson called ‘Generation XXX’ allegedly introduced students to sexting as well as pornographic sexual positions and how they ‘look painful and are certainly not enjoyable’.

Not all students would be familiar with the concepts being presented to them, the review found.

In terms of gender-related issues, pupils were also being taught they could identify as a ‘woman, man, two-spirit, genderqueer or genderless.’

As a substitute for these classes, students will instead study topics related to correct use of credit cards, consumer protection laws, domestic violence, drug education and safe driving skills.
