Lawmakers approve sex ed changes

RALEIGH All districts must teach abstinence until marriage, but they'll also be able to give information on contraception to prevent pregnancy and disease.

Parents who want to opt out of the more detailed information will be allowed to keep their kids out of class.

The legislation affects grades seven through nine. Governor Beverly Perdue is expected to sign the bill into law.
