Transcript of Sex Education in School

... In school! Sex Education... Pro Side Con Side
Church's Point of View The Law Our View
The Catholic Church's point of
view on sex education is stated
in the 1995,60-page edict,named Human Sexuality:Truth and Significance.

Catholic Church's main teaching
on sex education is that the Catholic
home is the "exclusive center of education
about sexuality and morality." It believes sex education is the
fundamental right and obligation of
parents and it must always be under
their guidance. Another teaching is that
Catholic parents have "a duty to
pull their children from sex
education programs" in schools that
"promote condoms to avoid pregnancy
or AIDS." Each state in the
US has a different law
on sex education in schools.
The law in California is
that "schools are not required by
law to provide sex education but if
school district chooses to offer such
courses, they must teach abstinence
until marriage and give information
on contraception." Schools must also provide STD
and HIV/AIDS education.
Olivia: My view on sex education
in schools is that it should be
taught in every school, public and
private. The main teaching that
should be taught to all students
is that sex should be shared
between a married couple who have
a special bond with each other,
and that it is an irresponsible
thing to do outside of marriage.
Students may suffer from embarrassment or get excitable by the topic matter. This can cause for out of control classrooms if students take giggling or makinginappropriate remarks. Most sexual education classes are taught as a brief interlude during a physicaleducation or health class. This is not a long enough time to effectively relate such serious material Often,sexual education can go against an individual's moral or religious beliefs. Many schools do not teach "abstinence only" but teach how to have intercourse safely, whereas many religious and family values stress marriage before intercourse Sexual education is often viewed as a "recreational" course and not a serious subject (this is a direct correlation to the fact that there are no grades and scores to be derived from class). Teacher are not always trained how to properly teach sexual education courses and may transgress their own beliefs or morals into the subject matter rather than stick with the facts. The attitudes of parents educators or religious leaders in the community can cause the subject matter to vary from state-to-state, or even school-to-school. Classes are gender exclusive. This saves embaressment amongststudents and teaches them only what is necessary to know based on their gender. Taught properly, sexual education could become a regular course such as Human Anatomy or BiologicalScience complete with tests and grading that goes towards their graduating credits. Student's can be taught the correct terms of the reproductive system, sexually transmitted diseases and birth contraceptives rather than the "street lingo" Myths surrounding intercourse can be dispelled (such as not being able to get pregnant the first time) Appropriate sexual education can have an impact on prevent sexual problems in adulthood. Dean: My view on sex education
in schools is that I believe sex
education is a responsible way
to letting teenagers know
what premarital sex can
cause to their lives. There are always
risks and downfalls to teaching
anything but I believe that
teaching the subject would be for
the better. Lexie: My view on sex education is that it should be definitely taught in school. I believe that it should be separated because kids wont be embarrassed and can ask many questions and not be intimidated by the other sex. I also believe that teenagers should know how sacred sex is and to save it for marriage. http://www.avert.org/sex-education.htm
