North Carolina Senate Bill Headed To House Would Change Who Could Teach Sex-Ed And Add Sex Trafficking to Curriculum.

The AP (9/16) reports a bill passed by the North Carolina Senate would change who can teach middle school sexual education classes and modify the curriculum to include a discussion of sex trafficking. Currently the law requires credentialed “sexual health education” experts, but the bill would allow any credentialed expert to teach the classes. Rep. Chris Whitmire says the bill would allow schools to use more “religious-based materials that still can meet objective scientific standards.” The bill is head to the North Carolina House floor on Wednesday.
