At what ages are pupils introduced to sex education? And how are the physical and emotional aspects introduced?

Danica Marie Fread's insight:

It is so important to teach youth sex education. Sex education does not promote sexual activity, it helps prevent unwanted pregnancies and educates teens how to protect themselves from STD's. I am so thankful that I was educated through my high school, the education was the best birth control I could have ever received!

“I’ve committed my life to fighting this horrible scourge on humanity. Seeing innocent young women and children whose lives have been forever scarred leaves no doubt that they need a champion who is willing to invest all their time and energy towards eradicating the shameful practice of human trafficking. I cannot wage this fight alone and call upon anyone who cares about the innocent victims to donate their time, money and advocacy to this important cause. Each contribution means everything to the victims and know that I will be forever grateful for those who help make such an important difference.”

What are your thoughts?

 

"Sensational images of poverty are often used to frame issues of humanitarian aid to advocate for a cause, design programs, or raise funds. This practice represents people living in poverty as victims rather than as people capable and determined to define their own future.
