"The 'what' part is mandated by the ministry," said George Kourtis, a program co-ordinator for physical education at the Toronto District School Board.
"The 'how' part is up to the teacher." Tsesang expressed disappointment that classes don't push further into sexual health issues.
"People should take [consent education] more seriously," said Charlie Cowan, a 17-year-old attending Central Tech. "The first class we had in sex ed, they gave us a list of cases where consent was given," he said.
"Some [teachers] are going to be more creative." The Ontario curriculum teaches students in Grade 1 the proper names for body parts.
Grade 2 students learn about the broad concept of consent by being told that no means no.
The Liberals abandoned an earlier attempt to update the sex ed curriculum in 2010 after protests by some religious groups, but Premier Kathleen Wynne, who warned it is "dangerously out of date," promised the update will be in place for the start of the school year in September.
The reintroduced curriculum is not expected to show a marked departure from what was proposed in 2010.
