You wouldn't believe some of the answers kids gave in my health class in high school. And this is at a parochial school where people's parents are supposedly at home teaching them the "right" sex Ed straight from god's mouth. I can only imagine what those heathen public school kids' parents taught them. But in either case, it wasn't based on anything you could call "science".
I think the real problem here is that you and every other parent out there opposed to someone teaching your kids about their bodies is that you're confusing science with morality. It's the equivalent of not wanting your kid to learn evolution because the bible says we didn't come from monkeys.
Ah yes, freedom of religion must bow to the collective yet again.
