REPORT: No more abstinence-only sex ed–state closer to ‘comprehensive curriculum’ that includes sexual orientation

TheHill.com:

A bill that would ban schools from teaching abstinence-only sex education is making its way through the Colorado state Legislature.

The Colorado state House overwhelmingly voted earlier this week to pass a measure that would require state schools offering sex education to provide a comprehensive curriculum that teaches students about options other than abstinence.

The article goes on to state the following:

If passed, the bill would also ban the state’s public schools from teaching abstinence-only sex education.

The bill, which seeks $1 million to provide annual funding for school districts unable to offer such courses, was approved by the state House in a 39-23 vote Tuesday. It now heads to the state Senate for consideration.

“We want to make sure kids understand that there are different relationship models beside just heterosexual — that there are people who are lesbian, gay and bisexual,” state Rep. Susan Lontine (D), one of primary sponsors behind the laws, told a local NBC station.
