Comprehensive Sex Ed Comes to CO
LGBT students in Colorado will soon receive access to an inclusive sex education. Colorado’s state legislature passed HB 1081, which adjusts the state’s definition of comprehensive sex education to include sexual orientation and gender expression.
The law requires schools that receive funding through the state’s sex education grant program to ensure that every student is provided with medically and scientifically accurate information. The state measure will help Colorado’s youth to receive evidence-based, culturally sensitive and developmentally appropriate standards of instruction in school.
