Kindergartners in Chicago public schools will soon be learning about sex education.
The Chicago Board of Education approved the policy on Wednesday, Feb. 27.
The program includes discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Kindergarten and first-grade children would learn about anatomy, healthy relationships and personal safety.
Right now, sex education doesn't begin until fifth grade.
