Healthy Students, Healthy Schools (2019)
Many public school districts across New York provide sex education that is inaccurate, incomplete, or biased ‒ and some schools provide none at all. New York students deserve better. Comprehensive sex education supports young people to make healthy decisions and have healthy relationships, and is critical to the well-being and educational outcomes of young people. A-6512 (Nolan/Gottfried)/S-4844 (Metzger/Montgomery) requires public schools to teach medically accurate and inclusive K-12 comprehensive sex education that is age-appropriate and reflects national standards and best practices.
