Promote Comprehensive Sex Ed in Schools

Senate: S2584
Assembly: A6616

This bill requires that comprehensive, age-appropriate, medically accurate sex education be taught in public schools.

4% of LGBT youth in middle school & high school report having any positive discussion of LGBT people or issues in their health classes.Comprehensive Sex Education is a rights-based approach that seeks to equip young people with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values they need to determine and enjoy their sexuality—physically and emotionally, individually and in relationships. It is important that young people navigate the difference between gender and sex; exploring gender roles and attributes; society’s changing norms and values; gender bias, stereotypes and inequality (including self-stigmatization).
