Teachers are threatening to boycott a new school curriculum that would see them teaching pupils about masturbation and sex. Mzansi social media users seem to be in full agreement with them. Many have expressed outrage over the proposed introduction and fear for the innocence of their children.
This curriculum requires teachers to explain the process during vaginal, oral and anal sex. According to the City Press, reports of this new syllabus were leaked to the media last week. The leaks state that the program with be implemented for pupils between Grade 4 and 12.
