The boards and the bees

Ironically, in a country with a past prime minister who famously preened about the state having “no place in the bedrooms of the nation,” the schoolroom is becoming a seminar for the boudoir. Ministries of education across the country are refashioning grade school curricula according to the postulates of tendentious, pseudo-scientific ideologies of identity. The radical politics of sexual education have become the norm for all grades in schools across Canada. Is abortion simply “something the woman decides to do with ... (Continue reading)

Studies cast doubt on benefits of full-day kindergarten

The Ontario government has released the results of reports completed more than a year ago showing that the impact of its $1.5 billion per year full-day kindergarten program is mixed.
