    only sex-ed programs are the only thing available to most kids. I am here to advocate for comprehensive sexuality education programs rather than abstinence (no sex until marriage) only programs. To correctly argue my point, one has to have a basic understanding of what is happening in schools today. Currently, at least in Texas, there is no well-taught comprehensive sexuality education, and sometimes there is no sex-ed at all. This is a problem because if students don’t get comprehensive…

    taught safe sex (Abiona, 2012). Statistics shows teens are having more sex, so regarding that information safe sex education should be reinforced. In 2012, The Guttmacher Institute released data and information that sex education not only helps young adults delay intercourse, but also has a positive impact on other decisions when they do, such as partner selection (Abiona, 2012).”For example, take a student that has been educated all throughout high school about abstinence, safe sex, as well as…

    putting his education aside to impress a girl that ended up with another boy. This all could have been avoided if Carlos would off gone to a school that had single gender classrooms. Carlos would have had paid attention in class if the girl that he liked wasn’t present in his class room. This problem happens more than what a person thinks it does.

    Sex Education today is one of the most overlooked atrocities in the nation. Kids in many areas of the country are taught religious rules in public schools. To some, this seems like a positive aspect, that learning how to treat ourselves based on the majority religion in the country is the best idea a government-funded school can have. However, that’s not accurate. Although, yes, most Americans identify as Christians, most does not equal all. And even if all Americans did announce themselves as…

    Comprehensive Sex-Ed in Schools “Mom, what’s sex?” “Don’t worry about it, you’re still too young.” A typical parent and teen conversation. When it comes to the talk about the birds and the bees, parents turn the conversation around and don’t want to talk about it. Just to keep them from asking questions about the topic they will respond with a “Don’t have sex till marriage and you’ll be fine.” This is not the adequate amount of information for confused adolescents. During their teen years,…

    How does the lack of sex education for queer students impact their mental health and emotional wellbeing? It is important to begin with an acknowledgement of the value of identity validation. Among LGBTQ+ communities across all age groups, geographic locations, and other social identifiers, a common experience is the lack of validation – or even recognition – of queer identities. This can become especially salient within sex educational contexts. I work as a Health Educator with Peer Health…

    Should sex education be taught comprehensively in public schools? The idea of teaching sex education as a whole has been a continuous debate since the 1960’s. “But, as early as 1912, the National Education Association required teachers to be trained in sexuality education” (Pardini 1). Some argue it should not be taught in schools at all or it should only be taught in the privacy of a parent’s home. Well, explain why “nearly 10,000 young people (aged 13-24) were diagnosed with HIV infection in…

    not monitor their kids or teach them about sex/safe sex. This could potentially push away families who want to move to the Valley, because who wants their 16 year old daughter to get pregnant, or their 17 year old son to become a father at such an early age. If parents don’t want to teach their kids about sex education, I believe it is up to schools to teach them. School is a learning environment and learning about the dangers and how to practice safe sex is just as important as any other…
