Lessons on sexual assault and consent are a common part of freshman orientation at college campuses across the nation, but some argue that those lessons need to start much earlier to make a meaningful impact. That’s why Fairfax County Public Schools, the 10th largest school district in the country, recently updated its family life education curriculum to cover sexual consent and assault. Universities feeling the pressure of national headlines focusing on on-campus sexual assault are also rethinking ways to use education to prevent bad outcomes. We explore how some local schools are trying to prevent sexual assault through education, and the role one Washington-based tech company has in helping them do so.
