Episode 103: Does Idaho’s sex education law need a rewrite?

Idaho’s sex education law has been on the books since 1970.

And a proposed rewrite may get another rewrite. The House Education Committee sent the sex education bill to the floor for amendment.

Clark Corbin provides a breakdown from Friday’s hearing — and how this issue got on the legislative agenda in the first place.

Also on this week’s show:

  • More Idahoans are continuing their education beyond high school, according to a new national study, but the state has a long way to go to meet its elusive “60 percent goal.”
  • Gov. Butch Otter meets the press — and pretty much concedes defeat on one of his big legislative goals for 2018.
