California To Adopt Comprehensive New Sex Education Requirements.

Education Week (10/14, Blad) reports that under new legislation in California, the state “will adopt new sex education requirements, including a mandate to teach about affirmative sexual consent” in public schools next year, noting that while campus sexual assault has been a growing policy focus in recent years, “advocates for comprehensive sex education insist that conversations about issues like consent should start earlier, before many teenagers consider having sex for the first time.” Districts that require health courses “will soon be required to incorporate into that course instruction about sexual harassment and violence.”
