Sexually transmitted disease and unexpected pregnancies are an increasing problem in America. Many public school systems have been working to mitigate these problems through the teaching of sexual education in school. However, many schools are still using an outdated and ineffective system known as abstinence-only programs. These abstinence programs are set on an unrealistic goal to stop everyone from having premarital sex. In addition, those who go through abstinence-only programs are put at greater risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases and getting pregnant unintentionally. Abstinence-plus programs, which teach contraceptive uses in addition to abstinence, would greatly reduce

To find out what needs to be change we should look at what is being taught. In Levine’s book, Harmful to Minors, she discusses the curriculums being taught in public schools today, by breaking them down into two categories. Abstinence-only and abstinence-based. Both of these programs do teach about health, physical education, home economics, and biology, but both can really differ when dealing with the different “sensitive” issues. Abstinence-only education, promotes postponing sex, but when it comes to issues like contraception, it is taught how affective it is, but not where to get it. Abstinence-only curriculum promotes more

The condoms display in the Hidden Heroes: the Genius of Everyday Things exhibit is a showcase that would cause an individual to wonder about adolescents’ overall knowledge of human sexuality. In today’s society, children are susceptible to learning about such a delicate topic not only from their families and peers, but through the media as well. These sources often provide misrepresentations of the information due to ignorance and biased views. Therefore, in order to inform individuals more accurately, sex education programs have been created with the intention to be implemented into schools across the country. This has led up to being one of the most controversial issues hovering over

Sex Education in Schools
Children all over the country who sit down in their classes are being taught sex education. There are books, videos, special speakers and qualified teachers for the subject. Depending on where a child lives, the education he or she is being taught might vary. For example, Wyoming, North Dakota, Minnesota, Maine and Utah do not require schools to provide sexuality or STD/HIV education, (they teach abstinence). District of Columbia, on the other hand, must include contraception with condoms available (Innerst). I was once shown a book that was used to teach sex education to fifth graders in an inner-city school. The book was softbound, about one hundred

Sex education is a major cause of arguments among parents and their school’s board of directors. Some parents argue that sex education should be taught at home or in their religious institution based upon their values. Should the public education system teach sex education to students?

Single Sex Education is the new trend of the future. It is the new best thing for both boys and girls and in the last few years there has been a major increase in interest in single sex education schools. Boys' and girls' brains are set up differently so they should be taught differently in different environments. Single sex education is when there is either one whole school set up for only boys or only girls or it could be a classroom for only boys or girls. One issue is whether or not building public schools for just boys or just girls is unconstitutional. Does it violate Title IX?

Teenage sexual activity is a major problem confronting the nation and has led to a rising incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and teenage pregnancy. The existence of HIV/AIDS has given a sense of urgency to the topic of sex education. The issue of sex education in schools especially in the formative years has been a subject of intense debate among parents, school officials, health scientists and religious authorities worldwide for a considerable period of time.

West Virginia schools have implemented sex education in most high schools, but it may seep even further down, possibly to your community's elementary schools.

Most schools throughout the nation do not have a curriculum in place for teaching their students any type of sexual education. Those schools that do have a program do not cover any types of prevention or birth control; they place the emphasis solely on teaching abstinence, which is an unrealistic option for most teenagers. Parents are striving to promote a feeling amongst themselves that they truly care about their children's well being, while at the same time not allowing their children to be educated about sex, different types of birth control methods or to allow them access to lifesaving method of prevention.

great way to explain to the boys about girl's menstrual cycle. Without these classes, some kids would be completely clueless about what goes on in their bodies and what the other gender is capable of. Overall, my point of view is that sexual education should be taught in school. It's a subject that should not be looked over and should be taught before you go to high school when those things come into play.This is my point of view because boys and girls need to know about their bodies, know about STD's, and know the different types of methods to prevent pregnancy. Schools should allow sex education because there are a lot of diseases that are going around today that are deadly. Sexual education should be taught regardless.

School teachers should be trained on how to teach sexuality, but in case it is not possible, all of these aspects can be carefully handled by a trained sex educator.Regardless of the teacher or instructor, it should be considered that sexual education is absolutely necessary to integrate sexuality in youngsters' life from a perspective of self care and responsibility, including also the emotional side of sexuality, so that adolescents see it as a

A controversy is rising in America about the nature of sex education in the nation's high schools. Studies show that 81 percent of American adults support a joint program teaching abstinence and contraception as opposed to an abstinence-only program (Roper 0316946), and 79 percent support contraception education regardless of the level of sexual activity in teenagers (Roper 0340807). The sad fact is, contraception is society's attempt at a "quick fix" for a problem that runs far deeper than the issue of teen sex. In the debate over the "best safe sex," educators and parents must consider not only the health issues, but must also reevaluate the morality of the nation's young people

A few reasons that the school, parents, or community may be hesitant are cultural beliefs, age of the students the program is being implemented to, the community in which it will be taking place in, and the idea that drug education promotes drug use. In Canada, schools have a large range of cultural diversity, so ideas and feelings towards drug use will vary from family to family.

In other words, character education is the teaching of morals and ethics. If more schools start teaching it now, the future generations will know a lot more about the fundamentals of character etiquette. Without character education, the crime rate will stay the same or increase, students will lack the fundamentals of respect, lack good morals and ethics, and will not be able to pass what they were learned down to the next generation for the future’s society.

Music Education in our Public Schools
Music Education is no doubt a necessity to the students of today. Music plays a major role in everyone’s daily life. Music is listened to while driving in the car, when eating in restaurants, relaxing at home, and even when on hold to a company’s overloaded phone system. Music is everywhere you turn, and it should be one of the main subjects to be studied in our public school systems. Public schools in America need to understand that the funding and continued study of music is just as important as the funding for math or science to produce a well rounded graduate.
Public schools in America have the awesome responsibility of producing
