I found a few negative points of view to teaching about sex education.The only disagreement I found to teaching about masturbation was the age about which it could begin. Some articles I read said that sex education could be taught to students as young as nine (fourth grade), either because of the district's changing policies (Ekvall, 2013) or because of the new Common Core curriculum All of the sites I found blaming Common Core however, were very conservative and one-sided, and compared sex education to grooming kids for pedophilia; I could not find any impartial media reports that explicitly mention the new curriculum, only the mention that individual districts were changing their policies. One site even said that the Common Core rumor is just that, a rumor.
