Justine Ang Fonte, a former teacher at Dalton School in Manhattan, New York, says she quit her job after her bosses didn’t support her when parents complained about graphic sex education and masturbation lessons to 6-year-old children.

What’s a brief history here?

Fonte — a “health and wellness” educator — came under fire in June after her video
lessons went into great detail about prepubescent children touching themselves in an intimate manner.

During the lessons, Fonte also showed children a video featuring cartoon characters discussing erections, masturbation, and more and specifically detailed intimate parts such as a woman’s clitoris.

Her lessons also reportedly included instruction on gender identity and consent.

Following the outcry, Fonte resigned from her $55,000-per-year position at the elite school.

The teacher, who also worked for elite Columbia Prep, recently came under fire for her pornography, kink, and BDSM lessons to high school students. Parents say that Fonte never received parental consent to discuss such topics in class.

Following the outcry, Columbia Prep’s head issued a formal apology to parents.

What are the details?

Fonte told the New York Times for a Wednesday report that she quit her job because bosses “[failed] to back me up” amid the outcry over her lessons, which she said “cost me my safety.”

The controversial educator now said she stands by her lessons and hopes to “equip” her students “with a way that they can exercise body agency and consent by knowing exactly what those parts are, what they are called, and how to take care of them. That was paired with lessons around, what are the different ways to say ‘no’? And what’s the difference between a secret and a surprise? And why you should never have a secret between a grown-up and you. Because it’s never your responsibility as a child to hold a secret or information of a grown-up.”

Of her experience at Columbia Prep, Fonte said that she desperately hoped to believe that the school was “ready to take on these issues in an educational, intellectual way.”

“At least one person at that school trusted that I could do it,” she added. “And I did. But they weren’t ready to back it up, and it cost me my safety.”

The outlet also reported that Fonte suffered a variety of attacks on her reputation, including “violent threats in her inbox” as well as the “experience of being doxxed.”

According to the Times report, Fonte is now planning to write children’s books and more.
