Kansas Lawmakers Consider Changes to Sex Education

The teaching of sex education in public schools has become a target for some state lawmakers, who are seeking big changes.

Kansas lawmakers are proposing big changes to sexual education in public schools. Commentator John "Richard" Schrock says the most recent proposals are similar to previous efforts at the Kansas Statehouse to curtail the teaching of sex ed in the classroom.

Commentator John Richard Schrock is the Director of Biology Education at Emporia State University. Among other things, Professor Schrock trains biology teachers on how to teach sex education. A postscript to this commentary: Kansas Senate Bill 56 - which removes the K-12 teacher exemption for obscenity - was passed by the Kansas Senate on Wednesday, without any debate.

Will proposed changes to K-12 sex education result in NO sex education?
