The state of sex education in Texas

The mostly conservative state of Texas is not necessarily known for its promotion of sex education in schools — it’s actually not even required to be taught at all. In this episode, Mackenzie Matwick talks to the Austin Independent School District’s Health Education Curriculum Specialist to show what they are doing to change this stigma. She also walks down memory lane to talk about what it was like going through the Texas school districts herself with the help of her mom and gives the rundown of what students in Texas are being taught versus what information is being held back from them.
