THE STATE SENATE IS VOTING TO OVERHAUL SEX EDUCATION IN ILLINOIS SCHOOLS. 

 

THE LEGISLATION PASSED 37 TO 18, MANDATING SEX ED STARTING IN KINDERGARTEN. THE IDEA IS TO PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE, AGE-APPROPRIATE, INCLUSIVE, AND MEDICALLY ACCURATE INFORMATION TO ALL CHILDREN. TOPICS WOULD INCLUDE CONSENT, HEALTH RELATIONSHIPS, SEXUAL HEALTH, AND DATING VIOLENCE. THESE ARE IMPORTANT LESSONS SAYS SENATOR LINDA HOLMES OF AURORA.

 

 

THAT'S JUST TOO MUCH FOR REPRESENTATIVE DARREN BAILEY OF XENIA.

 

 

DISTRICTS WILL BE ABLE TO DECIDE HOW THEY TEACH THE CURRICULUM AND PARENTS CAN OPT-OUT THEIR KIDS FROM INSTRUCTION. THE MEASURE NOW NEEDS HOUSE APPROVAL.
