A Generational Update For Sex Ed In Schools

State Department of Education officials today approved a new sex education curriculum for public schools in Massachusetts. The Boston Globe reported it includes more coverage of LGBTQ+ issues, sexually transmitted diseases and dating safety.

“Massachusetts is leading the way by providing a health and physical education framework that is inclusive, medically accurate and age-appropriate to help them make decisions that are right for their health and wellbeing,” said Governor Maura Healey. “We are grateful to the Board for approving the first update to the health education frameworks in more than two decades, and we appreciate the input we received from residents across the state.”

“The framework the Board approved today is the combined result of contributions and feedback from educators, parents, community members and health and physical education content experts,” said Education Secretary Patrick Tutwiler. “It provides a solid foundation for school districts and health and physical education teachers.”

It will be the first major update of the sex-education curriculum in 25 years.
