SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Critical new research has found that LGBT youth who experience high levels of school victimization in middle and high school report impaired health and mental health in young adulthood, including depression, suicide attempts that require medical care, sexually transmitted diseases and risk for HIV. This is the first known study to examine the relationship between school victimization during adolescence — specifically related to sexual orientation and gender identity — with multiple dimensions of young adult health and adjustment.

The movement for scientific, accurate, gay-friendly sex ed is stuck

The movement for scientific, accurate, gay-friendly sex ed is stuck | Growing up LGBT in School | Scoop.it

Three years ago, sex education advocates sat down to write national standards for how students learn about reproduction — something akin to the Common Core standards. Except, in this case, for sex.

 

The moment, in a way, seemed just right. Congress had effectively cut off federal funding for abstinence-only education in 2009. But no one knew quite what would, or should, replace it.


The result was the National Sexuality Education Standards, the first attempt at creating a road map for what skills and knowledge students should get from sex education. The new curriculum would be based on science, include clear information on safe sex practices, emphasize healthy relationships, and be LGBT friendly.

 

But so far, only one state, Colorado, has even come close to adopting them.

 

"There are pockets of good sex education," says Debra Hauser, president of Advocates for Youth, one of three sex education groups that joined to form the Future of Sex Education and write the standards. "But by and large we're still pushing."
