(WMC-TV) – Students at Shelby County schools are beginning the newly approved, age-appropriate sex education class.
Parents received a letter in the mail last week, saying that this week will be dedicated to teaching students about "family, friendship, and responsibility."
The letter also mentions that the curriculum is mandated by Tennessee state law.
Fifth graders will get a separate lesson than the younger students. It will be presented by counselors once the boys and girls are separated into two different groups.
