State Board of Education To Tackle New Sex Ed Rules
The State Board of Education will be looking at rewriting its sex education standards today for the first time since the 1990s. Texas has historically been known for taking an abstinence-only approach, but Dan Quinn with the Texas Freedom Network says there's no evidence sex ed leads to more promiscuity.
"Students that get comprehensive sex education delay their decision to have sex," Quinn says. "If they do have sex, they're more likely to use protection."
One of the more contentious discussions is expected to be about same-sex relations on the high school level.
