ABSTRACT
The article reports that the state of Washington will not receive a $200,000 abstinence-only sex instruction grant from the U.S. government. Legislators in Olympia, Washington passed a law that requires schools to present educational alternatives to abstinence. Virginia Governor Timothy M. Kaine has rejected the government's ultimatum because he wants to implement programs that have evidence-based success rates. The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush has increased funding for abstinence-only education by $28 million.
