It is also reported that teens are more likely than other age groups to have multiple sex partners and practice unsafe sex more often.

Teen births are a growing concern throughout America and there are endless statistics to back that up, but are schools doing all that they can to teach teens on precautions of certain things like offering a more indepth class for those who would want to learn more, or even the methods of birth control, or the flip side to this, the reasons why people do not want this taught in public schools.

In my opinion, I think they should teach information about how to be more safe, how it works and how to use.

Not everyone might want to take it, like in a few schools around the country students can get out of a sex ed class by parent approval, which is there right as an American due to the 1st amendment of the constitution.
