Can someone pull up our previous work on the last council of Lincoln on the matter of education? Itwould be best to compare and contrast this bill with the previous one.

Alright, so this clears up some things. I would wholly create a new amendment using the old education bill as a baseline, save one or two amendments added for an updated education bill.

One thing that must be clarified on is what is under the purview of a biology or physical education class? Is sex Ed in one of there or no? Thatís the only change that could be added in my opinion.

I based much of that bill off my own education system tbh. It's far from great but pretty much all councillors back then wanted education reform and there was some interest in splitting paths in later years so I just borrowed it and merged it with a Curriculum Reform act from Thr33.

Anyways, Sex Ed in my experience fell mostly into Biology (usually it's studied alongside the Reproductive System whenever it gets studied). Year 9 was when I got most of my Sex Ed (although smaller/simpler amounts were introduced earlier but nothing like Year 9).

However, in one of few differences from my RL education, Biology is actually not mandatory for everyone starting in year 9 instead of year 10 for RL me; so I imagine Sex Ed would be taught in year 8 instead. Laki's section IV is a good alternative though, but it might lead to longer school days if those are considered extracurricular (while I did get such kinds of activities in RL, they were more like 1 hour a month or something like that).

Worth noting that if Laki's Section IV is implemented, it could just replace the "General Class Meetings" subject instead, as it's almost the exact amount of hours as this bill would imply (1 hour every week). The aims of that subject are different (generally more towards solving any class conflicts, teaching students "life lessons", etc), but it's still an option

Physical education is mostly sports
Biology has a section of sexual reproduction as a theme in it
But sexual education is more about information before the act, learning about prevention methods by learning about contraception.

Well, this directly contradicts the Lincoln Education act in several places, shouldn't it include an explicit repeal or is an implicit one ok?

I expect this to be voted down, so the implication does not matter.

If Ninja doesn't vote on this bill he'll be automatically recalled for missing 6 consecutive votes once the vote closes in about 36 hours. However, due to the proximity of the general election, there isn't time for a by-election to fill the vacancy.
