WISE Texas


Cardea, the lead organization in California and Washington, is now expanding their work to include Texas, the newest site to join the WISE Initiative.  With a goal to increase the quality, effectiveness and sustainability of sex education programs, Cardea will establish a Learning Collaborative with a cohort of Texas school districts to support them in adopting and implementing sex education that aligns with the Texas Academic Standards.  Current Texas law emphasizes abstinence, but does not preclude additional topics of instruction.
