Senate approves sex education bill


Springfield – The Illinois Senate approves a sex education bill.


Senators passed the proposal yesterday, which would revamp sex education in Illinois public schools. The bill would have schools include information about contraception and STD's, while still stressing abstinence.


Current state law says schools should focus on abstinence and schools are not required to teach sex ed. The house approved the proposal last month and Quinn says he supports it.
