Yearly training to halt child sexual abuse could come to Texas schools

Published on April 4, 2017 under CommunityImpact

A Texas lawmaker is trying to implement annual training in schools to prevent child sexual assault. Rep. Tan Parker, R-Flower Mound, is sponsoring a bill that would require districts to host age-appropriate and evidence-based training annually so children can learn how to protect themselves against abuse. The bill also aims to decrease the child pregnancy rate, or the number of pregnant youths age 15 and younger.
