Teenagers receive a constant stream of sexual imagery and information. Whose responsibility is it to equip children and teens with the knowledge to form attitudes about sex, relationships and intimacy? Is it the parents'? Or should educators provide teens with sex education classes in schools?
No, sex education should not be taught in schools
Teaching sex education in schools robs parents of the decision of when, and how much, to tell their child about sex.
Sex education is an assault on religious beliefs
A comprehensive sex education program in schools violates some religious principles.
Many teenagers face enormous amounts of insecurity and anxiety surrounding sexuality, often leading to long term problems. This is largely caused by misinformation or lack of information about sex. Sex education could easily reduce this problem.
Teenagers are always going to have sex. By putting sex education on a curriculum, no child gets left behind and is left vulnerable, without the knowledge to make informed decisions and protect themselves.
