ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Kansas state board of education has adopted an opt-in policy for sex education on a 6-4 vote basis in the state. The new policy is included in the Kansas Model Curricular Standards for Health. It states that schools must get parental permission prior to allowing students to enroll in sex education classes. According to the Kansas Department of Education, since the new policy is part of the non-binding model health standards so the board has no authority to enforce it.
