amended by adding the following as a new, appropriately designated section:

49-6-1030.


(a) The general assembly recognizes that certain subjects are
particularly sensitive and are, therefore, best explained and discussed
within the home. Because of its complex societal, scientific,
psychological, and historical implications, human sexuality is one such
subject. Human sexuality is best understood by children with sufficient
maturity to grasp its complexity and implications.

(b) Each LEA shall adopt policies and procedures to ensure that
all classroom instruction, course materials and other informational
resources, that address the subject of human sexuality, are age appropriate
for the intended student audience.

(c) At grade levels kindergarten (k) through eight (8), any such
classroom instruction, course materials or other informational resources
that are inconsistent with natural human reproduction shall be classified
as inappropriate for the intended student audience and, therefore, shall
be prohibited.

(d) LEA policies and procedures adopted pursuant to this section
shall not prohibit:

(1) Any instructor from answering in good faith any
question or series of questions, germane and material to the
