Wording of the sexual abuse provision:

Quote:
11) (8) Course material and instruction shall teach pupils to not make unwanted physical and verbal sexual advances and how to say no to unwanted sexual advances and shall include information about verbal, physical, and visual sexual harassment, including without limitation nonconsensual sexual advances, nonconsensual physical sexual contact, and rape by an acquaintance. The course material and instruction shall contain methods of preventing sexual assault by an acquaintance, including exercising good judgment and avoiding behavior that impairs one's judgment. The course material and instruction shall emphasize personal accountability and respect for others and shall also encourage youth to resist negative peer pressure. The course material and instruction shall inform pupils of the potential legal consequences of sexual assault by an acquaintance. Specifically, pupils shall be advised that it is unlawful to touch an intimate part of another person as specified in the Criminal Code of 1961.
I do nothing but read legislation pretty much all day every day.

Obama exactly correctly explained these provisions.

John McCain lied. Period.

well, metioning the word "lipstick" is fair game, after all sarah brought it up at the convention.

post gop convention biden used it first, now obama-i think they were advised to-obama in a meaner way than joe.

at the end of the day, these guys look like they are picking on a woman, and that is not smart-plus they're losing.

if this behavior continues in a few more days they'll be putting on lipstick on their train wreck of a campaign as they continue to slide in the polls.

Enjoy the legal research, deep.

Maybe you'll surprise me and actually call McCain out on this. Anybody who does not after reading that statutory language is really out in la-la land.

I know he's not a part of the Obama campaign, but they're having a really bad few days. I think the wheels are coming off the bus. I sense desperation, and they have yet to figure out how to go after Palin.
Well the majority of community organizers are inner-city, poor, and minority groups.

We're in the wake of a convention bump, it would be pre-mature to start predicting the coming off of wheels, especially based on this.

I did read some of the legislation he signed. There was a discussion in one of these threads about teaching abstinence in schools. It was referred to as backwards thinking, however it is part of the legislation that Obama signed.
As far as I understood it, it wasn't "teaching abstinence in school is backwards", but "teaching abstinence only in school is backwards", which is an important difference.

I would clearly say schools should teach sex ed in a way that conveys the message "Sex at a young age is absolutely not necessary, and no contraceptive is as safe as not doing it at all."

Obama has said it was a bill to inform kindergardeners about sexual abuse so they would be protected?

Why would anyone be against that?

Did it receive an unanimous vote when it passed?

Yes it is correct. He is a link to the info. Regarding sex ed....it does say K-12, so according to the legislation, they could teach sex ed to kids in Kindergarten. Not that the ad was really fair but it does bring up a good point. I also dont agree with the language of K-12 for sex ed. It should have been age appropriate. If you look at the link, it appears that the bill originally had it as 6 -12 but it was changed to K. That makes even less sense.

Each class or course in comprehensive sex
14 education offered in any of grades K through 12 shall
15 include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted
16 infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread
17 of HIV AIDS. Nothing in this Section prohibits instruction in
18 sanitation, hygiene or traditional courses in biology.

IT SAYS AGE APPROPRIATE RIGHT THERE IN THE PROVISION.

This is seriously maddening.

I give up.

Section 27-9.2(a)

whenever such courses of instruction are provided in any of grades K through 12, then such courses also shall include age appropriate instruction on ....

I know is says, "age appropriate" but I think that this is something that should have been very specific in the ages where this is to be taught and it should be a hell of a lot older that a 5 year old child in Kindergarten.

Well then lucky for you the legislation included an opt-out clause for parents like yourself.

But of course that would not be mentioned by McCain either, because apparently he's into truthiness.

For god's sake, use some common sense. Do you really thing they're going to teach those things specifically to kindergarten age kids? How many more times do you need Anitram to explain it to you?

Only because these points come up in the statute doesn't mean each one of the points is meant to be taught in every single year.
When one of the points isn't "age appropriate", it doesn't get taught.

You're missing or just ignoring the point. It was either poorly written or poorly thought out...or, most likely, both.

Wow, someone thoughtfully pointed out the exact text, someone who knows what they are talking about, and this all you bring to the table?

Just wow...
