I'm in Environmental Science and we watched a video on human population growth, and the regions where sex-ed was purely about abstinence had a sky rocketing birth rate, but the regions where people were also educated about contraceptives had a better time controlling the population. People need to be more realistic and understand that in no way will people just NOT have sex. It just ain't gonna happen, and it hasn't since the beginning of human life.

Shameful.

Wow, must have been a progressive high school. I went to a Catholic high school, and I remember debating in 12th grade religion class the merits of Bush's abstinence policies, and the teacher, b/c "it was his job," kept supporting the fact that abstinence was so much better, and ignoring the fact that condoms are a decent safety net.

States have too much power in this country, and this ignorant behavior is proof of it. If they can't handle it, they shouldn't have it. There needs to be more federal government standards for education among other issues.

For the first time I think I appreciate ninth grade health in a suburbian Massachusetts public school.

I agree with the many eminently sensible folks here who have said that contraception and prevention ought to be taught side-by-side with abstinence.
