KVG 01/07/2020 – Bill to be heard in Senate Education committee on January 15th. Continues to be a barrier to sexual health — OPPOSE.

Current law requires HIV education in  middle schools and high schools in California with an “opt out”  consent process. This bill would require that HIV education below grade 7 instead  have an “opt in” signature from the parent, thereby establishing  a barrier to providing such education. Opt-out  systems have been shown to better reflect parents’ wishes.
