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!

Having sex education is important for students to learn early on because then the students are informed about sexual abuse and can report it early on when they know the signs. Interesting perspective on reasoning for implementing sex education into schools

Shranna's curator insight, January 20, 2014 2:37 PM

Reading different articles, my opinion on sex education has become neutral. At first I was not fond with the idea of introducing sex education in early grade school because how much can an instructor teach an audience of five year-olds. But reading this article, I see how people strongly believe being more educated in a particular subject can and may reduce risky behaviors. 

 

But on the part where this article states that students need to be informed with sex because we all are naturaly sexually active and it is parents or our surroundings that make it an uncomfortable - I disagree too. Further, I feel that the purpose of this article is true but promoting sex education in early grade school to allow students to be more aware in case they are violated- I believe that this is not a strong reason to teach young students. I think that young students are able to know when something is wrong without it being taught. I also believe that sex education should be introduced but not strongly pushed at early school grades.
