See this Press Release for Gov. Pritzker: https://www.illinois.gov/news/press-release.23781.html
This was issued after 2 bills related to sex education were signed: SB 818 and HB 24.
What you need to notice in this press release:
- Sex education has been replaced by “Sexual” Education
- Comprehensive Health Education is more “inclusive”
If you don’t know the difference between sex education and sexual education, start researching. “Inclusive” is your first clue.
More important is: Parents can choose to opt out.
All school districts could have chosen to opt out. See “voluntary” in the text. The local districts didn’t.
