Utah Senate Passes Bill Prohibiting Discussion of Homosexuality in Schools

by Beverly A. Pekala on March 7, 2012

The state Senate in Utah has approved a bill providing that schools would no longer be required to teach sex ed in grades 8 through 12.  Individual school districts would be permitted to choose whether to teach an abstinence-only curriculum. It has also been reported that the bill would prohibit teachers from discussing homosexuality.
Utah is not alone, however. Last year the Wisconsin state Senate passed a bill requiring schools to promote abstinence, though the legislation did not prohibit teachers from discussing contraception or homosexuality.
