The Utah state senate voted 159 Wednesday to approve a bill that would bar teachers from giving spontaneous answers to student questions about homosexuality, extramarital sex, or birth control. The measure, which now goes to the house, would also strengthen restrictions banning school materials that advocate birth control and would allow school districts to opt out of the state-approved sex education curriculum.
