Wis. Assembly to vote on sex education bill

MADISON (AP) — Wisconsin lawmakers are taking on a bill that would make teaching about contraception optional in sex education curriculum around the state.

The state Assembly is scheduled to vote on the bill Tuesday. The legislation would stress abstinence education. Supporters say it gives school districts control over how they teach children in their communities.

Opponents say it would force conservative ideology into the state's schools.The bill passed in the Senate last year. If it clears the Republican-controlled Assembly, the measure would then go to Gov. Scott Walker.
