Salt Lake City, UT – Today we're testing the boundaries of sex education. A Utah lawmaker has raised the questions about the subject again. Representative Lynn Hemingway is drafting a bill that would push school districts to beef up the information they pass on to kids about sex. We're talking about the bill, but also about how much information young people can handle about the dicey subject. We'll also discuss how school systems in other countries are dealing with it and what kind of results they're getting.
