From: Chuck Schooner

Dear Ministry of Education,

As New Zealand education standards continue to drop off to the point where our children are so poorly educated they will really struggle to adapt in the real world as and when that time comes. However the Ministry of Education is managing to implement Grooming initiatives into the curriculum - yay for the MOE! After a quick look across some of the RSE resources it is blatantly obvious that educators are attempting to sexualize, exploit and confuse the next generation. On from that can you please provide in conjunction with the Ministry of Justice if required

- How does the Ministry of Justice / Ministry of Education define "Grooming" - please provide any and all documents, resources detailing the differentiation between Grooming and the teaching of some of the topics relating to RSE namely pornography, masturbation, sexual identity and gender identify.
- Subject to the definition of grooming what is the complaints process required to the public upon knowing that their children are being taught this disgusting curriculum
- What is the Ministry of Educations policy on identifying teachers that are actively grooming students versus teachers that aren't grooming children - how is this differentiated between by the Ministry of Education
- The RSE material states that pornography should be taught to pre-pubescent students - please provide any and all legal documentation confirming that this isn't a crime teaching students about this subject at the ages of 9-11 - for example students are restricted from watching this material yet the Ministry of Education is actively promoting this - if this is in schools then why is the Ministry of Education excluded from similar standards in the broadcasting industry where R18 material would fit this criteria
- If you make throwaway comment in a workplace then this can be misconstrued as sexual harassment - given the students aren't as developed as adults above the age of 18 then how can children reasonably be expected to make a complaint if they are unknowingly being sexually exploited
- Given the students have access to devices on public school premises - what are the punishments for students if they are to broadcast, promote or send any videos to other students etc
- If students aren't able to share illicit material then how does the Ministry of Education justify educators etc being able to share, teach this material
- Please provide all the NGO's that have been consulted on this curriculum - can you also provide individual costs paid to date, any companies being retained to provide advice - ultimately list all external consultants and fees to date and ongoing in promoting this filth
- Please provide and and all measurable outcomes both positive and negative and how is MOE measuring these - for example if in 12 months sexual assaults, activity in schools has gone up then who can be held accountable
- Please provide the "vetting" process for external consultants - ie what background checks are completed to determine if external consultants are predators
- Please provide any and all "Legal Documentation" that was completed by the MOE with regard to promoting this filth to our most innocent - if no legal documentation was completed then why not?

Is it now time to defund the MOE given our children struggle to read and write but hey at least MOE is laying the ground work for them to enter in the sex industry. This is unbelievable. We have pretty much criminalised flirting in the office but this is being pushed?! How do you even square that circle?!

Yours faithfully,
