Implementing Sex Ed Updates: A view from Ontario's Teachers.
The project focuses on what people can learn from the perspective of teachers about the implementation and enactment of a controversial updated health curriculum in Canada's largest province. The interdisciplinary team brings together researchers with backgrounds and expertise in environmental studies, education, public health, women's studies, youth studies, sociology, social work and nursing from across the province. An action research approach will be adopted that will draw heavily from the fields of curriculum studies, public health, policy studies, gender and sexuality studies, and equity studies.
