No Montana curriculum yet for child sexual abuse prevention

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Montana became the 45th state this year to enact a law that requires schools to address childhood sexual abuse.
The idea behind the law is to educate children about sexual abuse to either stop it or prevent it from happening.
But the Missoulian reports that unlike most of those other states, Montana's law isn't a mandate and it didn't include any funding to develop a curriculum or hire the people needed to provide training.
The state Office of Public Instruction has created a new webpage focused on sex trafficking and sexual abuse, but spokesman Dylan Klapmeier says no curriculum for schools has been developed. He expects that will get underway next year.
Republican Rep. Ed Greef, of Florence, who sponsored the bill, says he hopes funding will be allocated eventually.
