It was another testy Question Period at Queen's Park.

The NDP heavily criticized Doug Ford's government for scrapping the new sex-ed curriculum.

Education Minister Lisa Thompson says listening to Ontario parents and leaders is crucial to any new legislation.

"We will be respecting parents and respecting people who want to raise their voice to help put our students back on a path to a successful career because we know in over the last 15 years, it went the opposite direcion," she says.

In response to more questions about re-instating modern sex-ed, the PC's said the government should focus more on improving students' math scores.
