Kindergarten children in New York will be learning about HIV and AIDS, including that it's hard to "get well" from AIDS.
They won't be learning how AIDS is contracted, which is at least something positive, yet I would think the program may leave these 5-year-olds with a fear that they, too, could get AIDS.
The curriculum is described as "developmentally appropriate." How could it be appropriate to teach little children just out of preschool about a virus contracted in ways they can't begin to fathom?
Some days I can only shake my head.
