Let’s get a grip. When all else fails, read the curriculum at www.helena.k12.mt.us. This is a great health curriculum! It provides a tremendous foundation for children to grow up healthy.
Dr. Grossman is just one educated opinion, just like the other 44 local professionals who contributed to the curriculum, plus the thousands of others represented by the research citations, plus the thousands of public comments. Good heavens. As a community we are engaging in true believer, mob mentality — arguing about whether children are learning a topic one year or the next — arguing over a part of the curriculum that is optional. Look at the whole. It is a great health curriculum, one we can be proud of and look forward to implementing.
