Sex Ed Could Be Coming To The Fifth Grade In Springs

Instead of 8th grade, the Springs School in East Hampton is considering teaching sex education to fifth graders.

The Board Members at the school have recommended creating a committee of parents and school teachers and officials to make a decision on the change.
