Montessori educators are calling for sex ed lessons to be taught in classrooms across the country.
The new school year kicks off on Monday.
And they’re calling for parents to get their children to learn more about sex in the classroom.
“If you’re a parent, I think you should want to be informed about the basics of sexuality and about sex,” said Lisa Stroud, an assistant principal at Montessorio’s New York City school.
“You should be able to have a conversation about sex with your child.
If you’re not in the mood, then I would strongly recommend to not have sex in public schools,” she said.
Montessori Education, a nonprofit that runs schools in New York, Washington, D.C., and Florida, says sex education has become a popular subject in its classes, and parents want it to be accessible.
Montessorio educators say it is important to have teachers who are aware of what they’re teaching their students.
“I think that if we can get parents to understand that it’s something they’re going to be exposed to, they’ll really enjoy it,” Stroud said.
Students have been asked to explain the difference between an orgasm and a vaginal orgasm, and how to tell when it is a woman’s body part.
But teachers have said some students don’t want to talk about their own sexual experiences.
A majority of parents told FoxNews.com they have never seen a lesson on the subject.
In New York State, Montessoria is the only school district that offers sex ed in schools.
Parents and teachers have been calling for it to become a priority in their schools for years.
Stroud said that she thinks it’s a good idea to do so.
“It is a topic that parents want to learn about,” she explained.
“If we can educate students, that’s a win win situation,” she added.
