A new bill in the California Senate could make sex education mandatory for middle and high school students. FM89’s Diana Aguilera reports.
If the bill becomes law, students will be required to learn about abstinence, sexually transmitted infections and contraception.
Right now, public schools throughout the state aren’t required to offer sex ed classes, but they are required to teach HIV and AIDS prevention. In recent years, Fresno Unified dropped its sex ed program due to budget cuts.
