EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — A proposed Illinois bill would require schools to teach students about the consequences of sexting.
The legislation would require children in grades 6-12 to learn about sexting during sex education classes. The classes would include discussions covering why sharing or forwarding sexually explicit or suggestive images, messages and videos could have long-term consequences. Those classes would also highlight school officials students can approach to report a problem.
