SEX EDUCATION IN TEXAS

Texas Is Ready


It’s been two decades since Texas last revised curriculum standards for sex education – but now we’re ready for a change.

This November, the State Board of Education (SBOE) will update the basics of sex education in Texas. We need your help to make sure students in Texas get access to the information they need.

The Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, the North Texas Alliance to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy in Teens (Ntarupt), and Healthy Futures of Texas are collaborating on advocacy to improve sex education curriculum standards for Texas youth.

Texas has new sex education standards!!


On 11/20, the SBOE updated the curriculum. Ntarupt is proud to be part of the Texas is Ready coalition that helped to lead this advocacy work!
