The Benton Harbor Area School Board will try again tonight to pass reforms to the high school and eighth grade sex ed curriculum. The board tried to meet last week, but not enough members were there for the meeting. They will meet tonight at 6 pm at Benton Harbor High School. The changes are being prompted by high pregnancy rates at the high school of three-times the state average and the revalation in a survey that 67-percent of ninth and eleventh graders are sexually active, with 17-percent of them saying they started before the age of 13. WSJM News has attempted on multipile occassions over the past two weeks to reach Superintendent Dr. Leonard Seawood to discuss the issue, to no avail.
