    Though only 52.5 percent of 3rd through 8th graders in Chicago’s Public Schools (CPS) met or exceeded reading and math standards this year, the district will now demand that kindergartners set aside 30 minutes per month for sex-education classes.
    According to the Chicago local CBS affiliate, some parents aren’t happy about their young children being taught about sex at school.
    “I want to know what kind of education she is receiving before she gets that education,” said Stella Yang, the mother of a kindergartner. “As a parent, I have a right to know.”
    CPS officials say the sex-ed curriculum will use age-appropriate language to teach children about correct names for body parts, bullying, and the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.

    Could this be one of those "international norms" Obama is so keen to defend?
