Ohio lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow the state’s education department to set health and sex education standards for K-12 schools.  But it is meeting opposition from conservative groups.

“Ohio is the only state that does not have a set of health education standards,” Yusko said.

But Linda Harvey with Mission America says individual schools are already teaching national sex-ed programs that she says recommend immoral and unsafe sexual activities.

“This bill seems to give a wink and a nod to more of this,” Harvey said.

A Senate committee is set to consider the bill for the fourth time. If it passes there, it could come up for a vote in that chamber before the end of this year.
