A new CDC report finds significant progress in reducing teen pregnancy, but finds sexual education seriously lacking.
Sex education doesn’t start at 6th, 9th or 11th grade. Comprehensive sexuality education is a life long process. Teen are not being shielded from sexual messages from their peers, their media or society; so why shield them in schools? Age appropriate sex ed K-12 would ensure that 100% of teens get the information they need to make the best sexual decisions for THEMSELVES.
The next time someone says anything along the lines of, “But if we don’t tell them about sex, then they won’t be tempted to have it,” I will slap them in the face with a copy of this article.
