SHAWNEE, KS – A Kansas father thought the picture of a public poster was a prank. Mark Ellis was shocked to find out that flyer asking, “How do people express their sexual feelings?” was part of the school curriculum. The poster lists, oral sex, sexual fantasy, grinding and more as options. Ellis learned about the poster from his daughter.

FOX 4 Kansas City interviewed Ellis about what he found, ““It upsets me. And again, it goes back to who approved this? You know this had to pass through enough hands that someone should have said, ‘Wait a minute, these are 13-year-old kids, we do not need to be this in-depth with this sexual education type of program,’” he said.

Ellis contacted the Hocker Grove Middle School principal. He was told it was a teaching material. He is now concerned that what’s on this poster is being taught to his daughter in school.

A spokeswoman for the school district says the poster needs to be viewed in the context of a bigger curriculum.

Ellis plans to remove his daughter from the sexual education classes if And if the school’s curriculum doesn’t change.
