  Ford and fellow Ontario PC leadership contender, Christine Elliott, are now both on record saying parents need to be consulted on the sex-ed lessons. Caroline Mulroney would not support “undoing any of the changes that have already been made,” but her spokesperson says that in the future, parents will have a say in curriculum updates.
   Education Minister Indira Naidoo-Harris noted that Ontario students consistently earn top marks in international tests, and said that “in fact, Ontario’s students now consistently rank with the highest in national and international student achievement results and more students are graduating from high school today than ever before.”
  She also warned about going back on sex-ed changes, saying in a statement that “in the age of social media, we have a responsibility to make sure students have the information they need to keep them safe. Through the updated curriculum, students learn consent, healthy relationships and how to stand up for themselves.”
