This bill will update the current requirements for teaching sex ed to students, including taking out the provision that requires schools to teach that homosexuality "is not a lifestyle acceptable to the general public and that homosexual conduct is a criminal offense under the laws of the state." (It's not.) It will also update some seriously outdated language in the bill, such as confusing HIV and AIDS and referring to sexually transmitted diseases versus sexually transmitted infections.

This bill did not have a public hearing, but it was up for a committee hearing on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 in the Education committee. It received a favorable report but did not receive a vote.
