Education and abstinence: Lessons for youth

Description unavailable

How much sex education do our youth get in schools?

Today we’re talking about the latest efforts to reform sex education in public schools. It’s a hot topic all around the nation as states debate various bills designed to educate children about premarital sex and teen pregnancy prevention. In Wisconsin where we broadcast, the “Strong Communities/Healthy Kids Act” is a bill that removes the requirement that all school districts in Wisconsin that want to have a sex ed program must have one that is designed by Planned Parenthood and approved by Madison.

“This is a bill predicated on the notion that parents, community members, and school district officials know better than Madison does about what is in the best interest of their students,” noted Julaine Appling of  Wisconsin Family Action.

Julaine is our special guest on the show today. Wisconsin Family Action worked to defeat the so-called “Healthy Youth Act” that was enacted last year because it took away local school districts’ ability to make important decisions regarding the sex ed curriculum, if a school district elected to have such a program.
