Under current Florida law, K-12 schools are only required to teach “the benefits of sexual abstinence” and “the consequences of teenage pregnancy” as part of sex-ed.

This bill does nothing to address current shortcomings and instead requires the Department of Education to develop instructional materials for students that include information on prenatal care and adoption. These materials are then prohibited from including “any component of human sexuality education” that would not be taught in a science classroom.
