As long as they can still teach abstinence the safest and primary form of birth/STD control this is good.

Next step is making sex ed standard cirriculum state-wide. Allow the parents to opt their kids out, but make it standard teaching.

I remember sex ed starting in grade 1. At that point though, it was less sex ed and more "Make sure you tell us about Mr. Badtouch. Also, avoid being Mr. Badtouch by avoiding these areas. As far as actual sex ed, I remember that starting around grade 5.
