Proposal: A comprehensive sexual education program would include proper materials as well as trained educators in order to provide a medically accurate, socially representational and respectful sexual education environment for students in the Seattle Public School district. Most importantly, as it is often lacking in already well-established programs, funding would seek to implement a specific chapter covering issues pertaining to the homosexual. This is to say sexual education would include curriculum designed to teach students about the acceptability and varying viewpoints of "different" lifestyles. It is a presentation of the issue and a representation of the reality in our society then subsequent moral/value judgment by students themselves. Money would be needed for this, and thus this is where grant writing comes into fruition. This is an easily arguable and acceptable proposal since we are dealing with children--our society's greatest commodity.
