sex education

  • A bill that would require school districts to provide extra notice to parents of their ability to opt out of sex education classes for their children is advancing in the Florida House. The bill’s original language would’ve required parents to opt in to classes that teach about sexual health. Some parents and religious leaders spoke out against the change before it passed its last committee stop.
  • A 32-year-old law makes it illegal for teachers in that state to speak about queer relationships, unless it's about sexually transmitted infections. But a federal lawsuit could change that.
