A bill meant to help Utah parents teach their kids about sex is halfway through its journey to become law.
The Senate unanimously passed SB39 on Wednesday, meaning it now moves to the House for consideration. The bill would require the state school board to develop and offer optional online training to parents on how to educate their kids about sex. It would not change how sex education is taught in schools.
Bill sponsor Sen. Stuart Reid, R-Ogden, said the program would be a tool for parents. School districts would also have printed copies of the materials available for parents.
