ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has chosen to refuse funds for sex education due to the restrictions placed on the federal funding. Accepting the nearly half million dollars in funding would have required the schools to teach abstinence-only sex education, which officials believe to be an ineffective approach to educating teenagers. The author explains that Colorado is one of 14 U.S. states refusing this funding.
