The way some schools in Nevada teach sex education could be changing.
A bill moving its way through the Nevada Legislature would require all districts to provide uniform, medically accurate and age-appropriate sex education lessons. Topics would include abstinence, abortion, contraceptives, domestic violence and sex trafficking. Students would be automatically enrolled in sex education classes under the proposed law, and parents would need to sign a document for their children to opt out of the instruction.
Currently, sex education instruction varies by county, although all counties have sex education advisory boards by law.
