Will There Be Sex Ed Changes In La Crosse Schools
Changes in the Doyle administration sex ed bill passed last year are coming. On Wednesday, the state senate passed the GOP bill by a 17-15 vote. Democrats called the legislation foolish and unrealistic, but Republicans forced the measure through. It now goes to the state Assembly, though it's unclear whether the chamber will consider the bill this year. So will it change the way sex ed is taught in the Lacrosse School District?

The bill's author, Senator Mary Lazich, stressed that the measure doesn't impose an outright ban on contraception instruction. Instead, she said, it gives school districts more control over their sex education curriculums even though the measure contains its own list of mandates. She says it's all about local control.
