Keeping Youth Safe and Healthy

Right now, 30 states require personal health and safety education in schoolsand Illinois is not one of them. When signed into law, the Keeping Youth Safe and Healthy bill will ensure that when personal health and safety or sex education is taught in K-12 Illinois public and charter schools, the curriculum is comprehensive, inclusive, and age-appropriate.

Decades of research show that laws like this hurt young people and serve no valid purpose. It's time for the PNA to be repealed.
