  • Two North Dakota State University faculty members are working with Planned Parenthood to start a new sex education program.
    Forum Communications (http://bit.ly/Vxsv3g ) reports that Brandy Randall and Molly Secor-Turner were notified in September that they were awarded a $1.2 million federal grant to launch the program. That's after North Dakota officials turned down the funding through the federal health-care overhaul law.
    Randall says the classes that start in late January will not encourage teenagers to have sex, but will allow them to discuss the topic in a setting that could cut through misconceptions that circulate through high schools.
    Secor-Turner says the grant must be used to offer comprehensive sex education that also teaches adult preparation skills such as healthy relationships, setting goals and making the right decisions.
