I support sex ed for high school age students. I think it's important because without better sex ed programs we end up with these dreadful statistics among teens related to HIV/AIDS. Source: CDC http://www.cdc.gov/healthyyouth/sexualbehaviors/pdf/hiv_factsheet_ymsm.pdf I was high school student when AIDS went mainstream in the late 1980's and early 90's, and we had it drilled into our heads that you abstain from sex or wear a condem. We have had several gay men and former heroin users come to school and tell us first hand that drugs/needles and unprotected sex was high risk. So why isn't the message continuing to reverberate among Gen Y and millennials? Gay and black teens especially.
