Sex education debate

Not only is this unacceptable to many parents and local communities, it is also an assault on teenage believers who are forced to sit through these classes.

Teachers could be parents, too, who are against teaching sexuality to their students. And research shows that abstinence education often fails — inevitably many teens who sign chastity pledges do end up having sex, and because they have not been taught about safe sex methods, they are much more likely to become pregnant or infected as a result.

Lack of sex education in schools

A choice for chastity until marriage is much more meaningful, and much more likely to be kept, if it is a positive and informed decision. Their minds are polluted that may move them to indulge their curiosity to try the act once or force another child to do it. The scientists followed more than 4, teens for an average of almost seven years. One would hope that would be true even if those adolescents aren't managing to conform to the standards of behavior that adults would consider ideal. Safe sex education promotes values and practices that are offensive to many religious groups. Eleven-and-a-half percent had had four or more sexual partners. They were also only half as likely to have been infected with chlamydia and gonorrhea.

But they've been teaching them this for some time now and the statistics and our own common sense tell us something different. Furthermore, one-fifth of sexually active high school students had used drugs or alcohol before the most recent time they had sex. We have to accept that for a wide variety of social reasons teens are now more sexually active than ever — a development which preceded widespread sex education and which cannot therefore be blamed on it.

This is why safe sex should be taught at schools.

What is sex education

Just like abstinence-only programs, good comprehensive programs teach students that abstinence is the only surefire way to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Although these are essentially what sex education is all about, many are still debating whether or not the topic should be a part of school curriculum. In other words, providing condoms in schools doesn't encourage adolescents to start having sex earlier, or even more often. Condoms, while not perfect, are widely recommended for the prevention of STDs. No because It might also be good to consider that the amount of pregnant teens and teens with STDs are due to lack of information given to all teenagers in the whole nation. In any case, many parents do not feel able to talk to their children about sex, leaving them in a dangerous state of ignorance. Comprehensive sex education programs, at least in the United States, generally emphasise that abstaining from sex is the safest way to prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

Fifty-seven percent of sexually active students had used condoms the last time they had sex, but only 18 percent had used birth control pills. After all, the Netherlands, famous for its very frank sex education, has both a higher age of first sexual experience, and much lower rates of teenage pregnancy and STD infection than countries such as the USA and the UK.

No because It's important that young men learn early that taking care of their health is one of the most "manly" things they can do.

Argument against sex education in school

Eleven-and-a-half percent had had four or more sexual partners. Religious groups should not The costs and social impact of unsafe sexual practices that result in STDs and teen pregnancy are carried by society as a whole, not just the parents of those involved. Comprehensive sex education programs, at least in the United States, generally emphasise that abstaining from sex is the safest way to prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Not strictly abstinence until marriage, but just abstinence. With the participation of parents in the program, morals and values will be better instilled in children. In the USA one out of every four teenage women between the ages of 14 and 19 have at least one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases not including AIDS-infected teens. Whichever scenario there could be, it is likely that the teaching capability and skills of teachers may be hampered. June 3, young people face a barrage of confusing messages. All the other studies that say providing condoms in schools doesn't make kids more promiscuous. We have to accept that for a wide variety of social reasons teens are now more sexually active than Sex education programs carried out effectively also serve as powerful tools in helping them prevent being infected by the HIV virus and other illnesses resulting from unsafe, inappropriate sexual decisions. This debate brings together many fields of study, including sexual culture, marital culture, faith, human instincts, pregnancy, disease, and parental-school-state roles. A study in Pediatrics found that parents who talk to their male children about sex are more likely to have boys who go to the doctor.

If children will be taught about the consequences they would possibly suffer from, they will become more cautious in making decisions. And pills and condoms are not as effective with teenagers, mainly because teens are more apt to forget to take the pill or to tear a condom. Rather than opting to abstain from sex, young people would resort to using contraceptive methods such as condoms and pills just to give in to carnal pleasures.
