    To clarify, HB 363 would have still allowed parents to opt in to instruction in human sexuality, such as human reproduction, anatomy, STDs, etc., it simply would have disallowed instruction in contraception.

    Just because the governor hasn't had people bring up problems with the sex ed law doesn't mean it can't be improved. Also, do public schools have a duty to provide every single type of instruction that parents might want? Should they have to provide instruction in skiing, rifle shooting, and poker, along with contraception, just because some parents want it? "Choice" should be a method for providing the best education possible, not the goal.
