I believe the curriculum for this course needs to be revamped. I can't even remember if we spent more than 1 hour on the topic of sex. All I remember from that class is going up to the weight room twice a week, researching a health topic on friday and writing a summary, and then having a discussion on Mon and Wed. First off, two days a week of discussion for a semester is a miniscule amount, and only a fraction of that is sex related. I can tell you in this post what that fraction consisted of. 1) Sex should only be after marriage 2)Abortion is wrong. The 2) topic was shown in a particular way as well. A video was played that showed a pregnant women in the act of getting an abortion. Then it continued to show flashes of what we termed "babies in buckets" Two young men proceeded to faint, and felt sick to their stomachs to a degree of needing to go out in the hall before the video ended. Never in the short sex ed segment was the topic of condoms or other forms of sexual safety broached. I agree that abstinence is the safest form of protection from STDs and pregnancy but the alternate methods should also be taught.
In closing, this is in no way an attack upon the teacher of the course. I respect that man like few others. This discourse is aimed at the curriculum of the Health class at Caney and I would like all following posts to be as well. I also did not have the luck to be in the Female version of this class and will not weigh in on that subject for a lack of insight into their experience. If anyone else feels like this is a pertinent subject please post about it!

Chris, the girls portion of sex Ed class was very organized and had prolly the best curriculum Schultz could give us in a semester. Everyday we learned something different. I'm glad that you started this forum...it needs to be paid more attention to it.

They should have spent the time they showed the video of abortion (which I don't think was appropriate) and showed pics of STD's and talked to the guys about using condoms. If they would talke to the kids about sex in a realistic manner then they would possible "reach" them better instead of trying to say "don't have sex til you're married" and if you get a girl pregnant you should preach to her about not having an abortion. Of course we should try to "preach" to them about not having sex, but if we are realistic, they do have sex and we should try to teach them to be smart and safe about it. The abortion thing was way off base and out of line. You can touch on the subject, but to show videos of it and only preach against it is crossing the line.

Yes, and thank you. From what I saw of the girls class it was very well thought out and balanced all the major issues fairly. I was unable to state that if I wanted to appear unbiased. I hope that if I am able to get enough support on this issue that I can go to someone in a position of authority and bring about some change.

Kat- You have no idea how off base the abortion video was. A video that graphic should never be shown to kids at that age. In the end it felt like what it was. A scare tactic that was based in personal ideals and had no foundation in trying to educate the young men at all. I think that the class was designed for a class in the 80s, and kids these days are much different. Since the easy accessability of the internet came around the kids have changed and the class should be aware of that and take it into account.

The girls learned about safe sex practices, sex organs of the male and female, STD's, and other things. We too also saw the abortion video, if I remember correctly we saw more than one, and a few girls actually begged Shultz to stop the video.

I remember one girl had a worksheet on female genitalia. Nothing hard, she just had to label the different parts and organs. We had nothing like that. I readily admit that all my knowledge of the reproductive organs comes from my biology classes. Its wrong that I learned more there than in a class that is deemed suitable to inform us of the crucial knowledge necessary. Currently I am thinking of my grandfather. He is having prostate problems and that is one topic that surely should be covered in a male health class. There is just so much that is not covered in the class! We could go on for days!

The curriculum is set by the state. You can look at the state board of education website and see what is supposed to be taught. It is not the curriculum it is the teacher. He is a wonderful man but he lets his religious beliefs determine the curriculum. He believes woman are subservient and that kids don't need to know anything because they shouldn't be having sex. This is unrealistic and down right irresponsible. If he is morally convicted not to present information then he should step down and not teach the class. Honestly I think schultz should teach both classes. This just isn't his strong point. He is very good at physical education. However when a student comes to you about alternative lifestyles you don't just say it's against the bible. This is why the largest number of teen suicides occur with homosexual teens. Preach at church but educate our kids at school. Touting religious beliefs to students instead of giving information is against the law. If he feels it necessary to provide religious council he also needs to provide information.

I can't believe no one is discussing this!! I know it's not nearly as juicy as who mrs main slept with. It is only a subject that could bring about positive change. OHHHH. That's why no one is talking about it. Maybe I could throw in some juicy half truths so people would bother.

Sex ed. is important, and maybe part of that curriculum could include recognizing that sex with your teacher is inappropriate, as is sex with any pedophile. Our teens should learn that, when a teacher invites you to their home for sex, to JUST SAY NO!

But, so true, isn't what's going on with the teacher exactly on point. What good is a sex ed. class if pedophiles are not subjects for discussion? We've all seen far too many youths being abducted by adults for sex in the news. More and more, it seems, these things are happening! Why wouldn't a discussion about inappropriate sexual advances be valuable, especially now?

Maybe you are correct. However, by the time someone is old enough to have a sex Ed class that is usually understood. But it might be good to cover how to report and handle that situation. That being said, this post is about the male sex Ed class not following state required curriculum. That includes sexual harrassment. So....maybe if the curriculum was taught a variety of things could be prevented ...std's, unwanted pregnancy, HIV infection, abuse---including teen on teen abuse and the bullying and hazing that takes place in the locker room.

Patrick and Chris this is where the adults have come to talk about the under lying issues and they make very good points would you boys please go play outside and let the big people talk!!!

As a mother with a young man growing up in this community I have chosen Caney school as it is the best school in the are. As a graad of Coffeyville I do believe the teachers in Caney do care more about their students academic growth. I do not care about the "situation" any longer pick up the pieces and move on. Things happen and they happen everywhere it's not the first "event" and it won't be the last. I do not know anything about the classes that they offer for sex ed but if they offer a class at all that is better then C-ville the last sex ed class I remember was in Elem. School. The most sex ed that was taught was in Biology when Staudt would go off on a tangent about animals or something. I do not mean C-ville does not have good teachers their are a lot of whom I admire greatly however I think parents need to take some responsibility for teaching their children the birds and the bees and the schools should get with the times and offer more options to the YOUNG ADULTS! They are going to experiment weither we wants them to or not... WE DID no matter what our parents said. Am I saying we need to give them instuructions and the ok go for it -NO! I am just saying perhaps we can offer something in the school to help the YOUNG ADULTS know how to talk to their parents about what they are feeling and what they are wanting and the parents need to know how to talk to their children and not say you are a child you can't do that til your married. I know we all want our babies to stay babies all their lives, but if we can put them in a car and tell them to drive safe and buckle up we should be able to say make wise decisions here's a condom stay safe! I wish you all the best of luck with your children, pre-teens, teens, and young adults as no matter what age they are they will always be our children and we will always want the best for them.

The girls get a wonderful semester during their freshman year. They cover everything in an unbiased presentation of information and encouraged to discuss with parents. The boys are supposed to have the same curriculum but are not taught that curriculum because it goes against the religious beliefs of the teacher. The teacher is a great man but should not be teaching the class.

Btw. Caney does have the best school district in the area. I would never take my kids to any other area school.

I think Mr. Stalford should teach the class personally. I remember when we were in Health/Sex Ed. I had him for science that same semester. We were mocking some of the material from the class and Stalford overheard us. He got involved in the discussion and we found out that he had taught the Sex ed. stuff at another school. Then he went on to ask us if this was taught and then this and so on. I don't think any of the things he brought up then were covered. I believe this makes him an ideal teacher for the course. He has experience, and is closer to the age of the students. Meaning he can relate better.

On parents' part in this. I agree that they have a responsibility in their child's development in this specific area but a class that completely covers everything, just in case the folks aren't biology/health specialists, can't hurt. I see no problem in having somethings covered twice. They are that important!
