The idea that a capable and informed teacher educates teens on the realities of modern sexual relationships is pure fantasy. In reality, the people teaching sex ed are not the best teachers in the school. Sex education instruction is often left to physical education teachers who receive little instruction or training and instead struggle through an uncomfortable speech on the “penis” and the “vagina”. In these cases, parents would be a far better source of sexual information.
Additionally, teachers themselves have many reservations about teaching sex education
. They are worried that they will go too far and will face a backlash from parents. In one survey, only 36% of teachers surveyed were confident teaching the subject of identity, which deals with topics such as transgenderism and individual sexuality 
. All sides could be kept safe if parents undertook the responsibility of sex education instruction instead of teachers.
