Texas School Board to Vote on Sex Ed Curriculum

The State Board of Education is expected to vote Friday on new sex ed books for Texas public schools.

Board members this week heard testimony for and against three new books proposed for middle and high schoolers.

"So far what we've seen at the State Board of Education, a majority of them have voted down some really radical text books that would have pushed LGBT and abortion," says Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values.

Whatever the recommendation, Saenz says schools and parents still have options.

"In Texas, school districts are not required to teach sex education, so these are still decisions you want to talk to your school board on whether or not they decide to do it," he says.

"Just be aware you still need to know and look what's being taught in your public school. They can seek other sources."

The board's decision could also impact how sex ed is taught in other states as well.
