— A cadre of college students is lobbying Kansas legislators to reject bills that would change the way parents approve student access to sex education courses and materials.

The bills have been introduced in the House and Senate. They would require school districts to receive written approval from parents or guardians before students would receive sex education instruction or access to materials. Currently, the decision regarding policies about parental approval of sex education is left to local school districts.

Students from the University of Kansas, Emporia State University and Wichita State University were lobbying Monday to encourage legislators to reject the changes, arguing they would ignore the wishes of local communities.

The House bill will be heard Tuesday in the education committee. The Senate bill awaits a hearing.

Understanding proper hygiene and contraceptives and the bodies that we have and will encounter is needed. Being educated is fine... but there comes a time when you just have to do it...
