New York Church Buildings Ban Sex Ed or HIV/AIDS Classes for Schools Renting Rooms
April 9, 2013
In New York, churches ban the teaching of any course on sex education or HIV/AIDS prevention in any church-owned building. However, New York state law mandates the teaching of sex education classes and, since 1987, the state decided that every student has to have classes on HIV/AIDS at least once a year. Also, in 2011, the state passed a law requiring students to have sex education classes in sixth or seventh grade and again in ninth or tenth grade.
