November 9, 2015. In October Governor Brown signed two laws making changes to California's requirements for sex education in high schools. One of those laws makes California the first state to require certain high schools to teach about sexual violence prevention and the “yes means yes” sexual consent standard. Host Joseph Pace talks with educators about the new laws on City Visions.
On today's next Your Call we’ll talk about how and where young people are getting educated about sexual health. Under California law sex education must be comprehensive, science-based and free of bias. California is one of the only states that doesn’t take federal funds to teach abstinence-only. So what do you think sex education should like in schools? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. What resources are available to educators and parents? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
