§61-8-9a. Child abuse; education; curriculum.
The Legislature finds the best way to avoid child abuse in
West Virginia is to educate our young people on the skills of
parenting; therefore, the Legislature directs the commissioner of
the department of health, the state superintendent of schools and
the commissioner of the department of human services to develop a
curriculum to be taught in each of the secondary grades; such
curriculum shall include, but not be limited to, discipline,
handling stresses of raising children, and the health care needs of
children. Such curriculum shall start no later than the 1990-1991
