Letter: Sex education should be parents' job

Sex education should be parents' responsibility

A recent editorial in The News stated that "New York State education has failed to teach students correctly about the birds and the bees."
Why should it be the mission of whatever state to teach our children those important things? That is not the state's job. It is the parents' job. Sex education should start in the home, in a loving and safe environment. Children do not belong to the state. They are entrusted to us parents for a brief period of time. We had better make good use of it!
