Kansas Board of Education Considers Move to Abstinence-Only Sex Education

By Frank Morris

Kansas City, MO – The Kansas Board of Education will hear Science standards highly critical of Evolution. Meanwhile, new fights loom for the cleanly divided board. Also today the board will receive recommendations on Sex Education that could lead to recommendations that districts abandon any instruction about contraception and move to a so-called Abstinence-Only model. The board also faces what could be a contentious process of hiring a new state Education Commissioner.
