Your Health: Sex Education
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- A new review of research suggests that sexual education programs in schools aren't always connecting with their target audience.
Researchers in the United Kingdom looked at dozens of studies worldwide and found that students complain their sex-ed classes carry a negative tone. Approaches are sometimes made on assumptions based on outdated gender roles.
They also found that schools aren't teaching practical information such as the use of contraceptives and where to go for help or information about pregnancy or Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
For parents, what is discussed at home can be extremely helpful and more important than what they think.
