Kentucky Lawmaker Wants Sex Education in Kindergarten Classes

A proposed bill in Kentucky would require children to take sex education courses in kindergarten.

The measure, proposed by State Representative Lisa Willner, would require all public schools to develop a curriculum for teaching students of all ages.

It would also prevent schools from restricting the ability of an instructor to answer a question related to comprehensive sex education.  However, the language in the bill does say the content would have to age-appropriate.

Those supporting the change say it would improve students’ physical, mental, emotional, social, and behavioral well-being.

The bill does allow parents to opt their child out of the class something current state law does not allow for.  It is being reviewed in the education committee.
