DA: Do not teach sex ed in schools

MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) -- Health teachers, parents and students say they're confused by a Wisconsin prosecutor's warning that teachers who adhere to new state guidelines for teaching sex education could end up breaking the law.

Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth warned school districts in his county last month that he believes teaching proper contraceptive use to students amounts to contributing to the delinquency of minors. It is illegal for minors to have sex with one another in Wisconsin.

Southworth advised schools to not teach sex education until the Legislature overturns a law passed in February mandating that schools that do teach sex education take a comprehensive approach. That includes teaching proper contraceptive use.
