Should Sexual Education Be Taught In Schools' Cirriculums?

940 words - 4 pages

“Given a choice between hearing my daughter say "I'm pregnant" or "I used a condom," most mothers would get up in the middle of the night and buy them condoms or a form of birth control herself” No mother ever wants to hear those words coming from their daughter at a young age, or even at all in some circumstances .You can avoid worrying about your daughters by reading the following information on the education of young teens and birth control.

First, students should be educated, so they are aware and able to make the right decisions. But most importantly, too many young teen females are pregnant and making poor...
