Young people are going to mischievous and get in to some trouble from time to time. The trouble of a pregnancy or sexually transmitted disease should not be one. When kids are not at home they are primarily in school. It only makes sense that education about sex, and condoms should be a part of the school system. It only makes sense that education about sex be included, and just as important as their academic education.
