Students speak out about sex ed curriculum at CCSD meeting

LAS VEGAS -- Birth control, abstinence, homosexuality and the list goes on and on, but so does the debate over how Clark County educators should update the sex education curriculum.

For weeks the Clark County School District has held open forums in order to allow parents, students and other community residents to express their opinion over the sex ed curriculum.

For the first time at Wednesday's board meeting at the Flamingo Greer Education Center, trustees publicly chatted about the feedback they've received so far.

Students at the meeting held signs and stated that the current curriculum the way it is now, is extremely vague and too conservative. Students said they want the real-life issues they face to be apart of the sex ed curriculum.

“I think we need to talk about identity formation; we need to talk healthy relationships and how to prevent rape and sexual assault, along with contraception,” said Caitlyn Caruso, a junior at Nevada Learning Academy.
