Sex Ed Guidelines Revised. Again.

The State Board of Education has issued a revised set of guidelines on sex education.

Two questions:

If school districts are free to follow or ignore the SBOE’s guidelines, why does the SBOE get involved in such matters?

When roughly one of out of four students (and one of out of two minority students) failing to graduate, shouldn’t we be concerned with other things, such as reading or mathematics, or even computer literacy? If sex education is really an activity that requires public involvement, perhaps we should find other ways of delivering that–through youth programs supplemented by state-paid workers, for example–and leave schools to teach the academics?
