Colorado School Board Calls for Sex-Education Law Inquiry

Sex-Education

A Colorado school board is seeking an investigation into the state’s sexual-education law, saying a recent update clashes the authority of local school districts.

It was reported  that the Lewis-Palmer School District 38 board in Monument has called on the Colorado Association of School Boards to investigate. The board’s resolution characterizes a new bill as a violation of the state constitution.

An association representative says it will consider the request, but no discussions have been done.

A 2013 state law says schools can choose whether to teach sex education. Yet an update to Colorado’s K-12 curriculum says schools teaching sex education must include specific material, while banning an abstention-only approach.

Required topics include consent, sexually transmitted disease prevention, same-sex relationships, and abortion among other pregnancy options.
