SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico public school students will be taught about sexual abuse prevention under legislation that Gov. Susana Martinez plans to sign into law.
The governor’s office said Martinez will sign what’s called “Erin’s law” on Tuesday in Albuquerque. The measure unanimously passed the Legislature.
New Mexico will be the ninth state to enact such a law.
The measure will require teachers and other licensed school personnel to be trained in detecting and reporting sexual abuse and assault.
Starting in the 2014-2015 school year, elementary, middle and high school students must be taught in health education courses about reporting and preventing sexual abuse.
