SC House: Sex-ed classes should be medically accurate, not just focusing on abstinence (+survey)

A bill that would require public school districts to teach “medically accurate” information about health and sex, and report to the state and parents what they are teaching, is heading to the S.C. House floor for debate. The House Education and Public Works Committee voted 10 to 6 Tuesday with bi-partisan support to advance the proposal. The bill also would require sex-ed teachers to be certified in health by August 2020.
