CLARK COUNTY, Ill. (WTHI) - A new state law in Illinois will mandate how schools teach sex education.
It will require schools to offer information to students about birth control and sexually transmitted diseases.
Right now, schools that have sex ed in the curriculum teach abstinence as the norm.
Kevin Ross is the superintendent of Marshall Schools, he says he is surprised the law wasn’t already in the books.
“From what I’ve read, I don’t think there’s a very good feel out there from the legislators as to what’s being taught, as to how many schools are doing this. There’s no record keeping of it,” Ross said.
The law goes into effect January first.
