National Review: On Sex-Ed Ad McCain is Right

The media has been livid about the sex-ed ad that the McCain campaign ran saying that Obama supported 'comprehesive sexual education for kindegardeners'. They have reported the Obama campaign's statements that said that the bill had to do with teaching kids about 'inappropriate touching.' The National Review researched the bill and found out that the Obama campaign and the media are wrong. There is no reference to inappropriate touching, but their is to comprehensive sex education for kindegardeners. The bill states...
Each class or course in comprehensive sex education in any of grades K through 12 shall include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread of HIV.

National Review: On Sex-Ed Ad McCain is Right

K-12 refers to our public school system. It does not mean that Kindergarteners will be taught about HIV prevention. Let's stop with the political idiocy.

Not exactly a fan of the ad; the problem is that the media is saying the ad is false when it isn't. The National Review article states that originally it was 6-12 then it was changed to K-12; that does mean kindergarten.
