Sex education leaves out the discussion of LGBTQ+ sexualities and genders in the curriculum
Ohio’s students lack regulation in health classes
Lexi Hackney, Arts and Entertainment Editor • February 18, 2021
Ohio is one of twenty states that doesn’t require formal sex education in public schools. As a result most schools teach abstinence based sex education or none at all. School districts make the final decision on how inclusive their health classes are.   According to GLSEN’s 2019 National School Climate Survey only 8.2% of LGBTQ+ students reported having ever received LGBTQ-inclusive sex education at school. Jenna Wojdacz, the director of education at the Ohio Center for Sex Education is trying to raise that percentage.

The Ohio Department of Education requires 5 elective credits, but the ambiguity of the requirement means many students go their whole high school career without taking a music class.
