PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Four Miami-Dade School Board members voted to keep a sex health education text in middle and high school classes were outvoted by five of their fellow board members.

That book was recommended by a school district hearing officer.

It included an opt-out for any parents who might choose to do that.

The board’s vice chair was one of those who voted to keep the book.

Dr. Steve Gallon joined This Week in South Florida hosts Glenna Milberg and Michael Putney to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
