Sexual education to be mandatory in schools across California

Sexual education will become mandatory for 7th-12th graders attending a public school in California starting next year. Proponents said it could address a problem in some districts with schools teaching outdated and biased information. The law will require that sex-ed curricula will teach HIV prevention alongside sexual health education—which was formerly optional—although parents will be able to opt their children out of these sessions.
