Some of you may be seeing this article and wondering why a part 2? Well, this is the post where I admit that some of the things I said in my previous article were made in haste. I may have over-zealously admonished against some health classes taught in schools and went on to infer that all public school systems are like this. However, it has come to my attention that all school systems are not equally yoked.
Washington D.C., for example, has one of the most liberal sex education policies, allowing students to be taught STD/AIDs prevention as early as prekindergarten, while Florida has one of the most conservative, prescribing that students receive education in the ninth or tenth grade to “teach abstinence from sexual activity outside of marriage as the expected standard for all school-age students while teaching the benefits of monogamous heterosexual marriage.” (abstinenceworks.org)
I apologize for previous misinformation. For a complete list of states’ educational policies regarding sexual education, please check out http://www.abstinenceworks.org/what-about-my-state-mainmenu-90.
