New Jersey to require 2nd graders learn about gender identity in fall: Sample lesson plan, ‘You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are ‘girl’ parts’

New Jersey public school second graders will be getting a lesson in gender identity this fall under state sex education guidelines that will take effect in September. 

According to the standards, New Jersey students should, by the end of second grade, understand the “core ideas” that all “individuals should feel welcome and included regardless of their gender, gender expression or sexual orientation.”

Additionally, the standards listed “performance expectations” for second graders, which includes discussing “the range of ways people express their gender and how gender role stereotypes may limit behavior.”
