If abstinence has shown great results than it should be taught to teenagers along with the lessons and materials that go along with sex orientation. Approaching the matter of sex orientation is clear. It should be taken head on so that nobody gets scared of the topic. If the topic of sex orientation frighten people than it is the job of the educator to make sure that their worries are met. Therefore the pros of having a sex education class that teaches everything that includes birth control, condoms and the many sexually transmitted diseases will outweigh the cons.
Teaching sex education in schools can create problems. Sometimes teaching sex education at all in schools are banned rise. These problems have solutions, however, there are ways to fix them, so teaching sex education to students is done the right way and is accepted by the parents. Sex education is not a topic that some parents want teachers talking to their teens about. Without it being taught at school, some students will not get proper education because students will not get the proper education as some parents will choose not to talk about it with their teens.
An opposing view my think that teaching the kids about sex will only lead to them actually having sex. This statement is completely inaccurate. “The overwhelming weight of evidence shows that sex education programs that discuss contraception do not increase teen sexual activity.” (Curran) Although, ideally, comprehensive sex education is expected to begin at kindergarten, it usually begins in sixth grade because parents do not want their child to learn about sex too soon. “A "just-the-facts" approach that includes contraceptive education is certainly preferable to "just say no,"” (Hess) The favorable approach is the comprehensive program. Sex education is fundamental because it also teaches kids and teens about sexually transmitted diseases.
It is said that instead of continuing with the promotion of safe sex, why schools don’t just offer teenagers sex education on abstinence and the importance of abstinence. Some parents believe the most secure option to prevent teen pregnancies and STD's is by abstinence. The question is "why don’t schools start by promoting that?" My answer to that question is because society shows that sex is good, it's pleasurable and acceptable. Teenagers lack the knowledge to make w... ... middle of paper ... ...uld not be having sex at all.
These kids are in danger of sexually transmitted diseases. There is also a big possibility for them to become pregnant and that is why sex education should be taught to avoid these things from happening. In sex education, students are also taught of abstinence. They are taught that they should only have sexual intercourse after they get married. In case the parents are always away from their children, sex education should be taught to them so that they would learn it from an educated and responsible adult instead of learning it from the media or from their friends There will always be peers who would badly influence others.
The programs in the past primarily taught to abstain from sex, teaching students that sex is only ok when you are married. What good is a Sex Education class, if you can’t talk about the actual act itself and how to do it safely? A waste of time and a waste of tax payer dollars that’s what it is. Abstinence should be included in the programs, but the main thing these kids need to be learning ... ... middle of paper ... ...vacy condoms should given in a non see through bag.

Sex education in our schools should teach more than just abstinence-only because these programs are not proven to prevent teens from having sex. Children need to be educated on how to prevent contracting sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies and be given the knowledge to understand the changes to their bodies during puberty. According to the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education: Kindergarten-12th Grade from the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), comprehensive sex education “should be appropriate to age, developmental level, and cultural background of students and respect the diversity of values and beliefs represented in the community” (SIECUS). Rates of sexually transmitted disease and teen pregnancy are higher in the United States than in any other domesticated country. Not surprising since American culture has brought sex to the forefront over the last few decades.
These values may not hold true for certain teenagers and their families, who hold a right to a non-biased education. Conversely, there are families who would rather not have their child educated in this manner. This withstanding, schools should also provide opt-out forms for these parents, while keeping the option of a comprehensive sex education open for those families who prefer... ... middle of paper ... ... them just as likely to have sex as teens taught a comprehensive sex education but less likely to use any form of contraception, instead thinking 'what's the point?' as they've been taught contraception probably will not work, anyway. Laci Green, a sex educator from San Francisco, states that "[t]his isn't education, this is anti-sex propaganda..." (Green 2:20).
Why deny them of all facts and information that will help them live healthy and productive lives? Comprehensive sex education may gave parents on edge about what their child is learning, but this will reduce unintended teenage pregnancies, the spread of sexual transmitted diseases, and other sexual related issues. Before comprehensive sex education is introduced to the students, it is important that Memphians familiarize themselves with the meaning and knowledge of knowing what it is. The term sex education is a word, or phrase, used to explain the human sexual anatomy, reproductive system, sexual intercourse, the attitudes and behaviors, and other sexual related issues (“Sex”). When defining sex education in relations with teens, it is basically informing them about all facts and issues about sex.
Undeniable that parents should give sex education to their children, aside from that, one who should strengthen the information received and making sure it is correct is school. Over and above that, teenagers should learn from an educated and responsible adult because some of the parents constantly aren’t home. This is because, it is believed that there will always be bad influence from peers. It is better to learn from educated adults than learning it from media or their
