9.1 million sexually transmitted infections are experienced by youth 25 and younger.
By age 18, 70% of U.S. females & 62% of U.S. males have initiated vaginal sex.

-U.S. teens experience 850,000 pregnancies annually
Student Activity
History on sex ed.
The following cards have the names of the states with the top 5 pregnancy rates and the top 5 lowest pregnancy rates
As a group, make one pile of lowest rates and one of the highest rates
Put each card into pile that you think is correct
Student Activity
Sexual education was first taught in schools in 1892.
It taught kids about sexual awareness, STDs, and decision making.
Sex Ed first came under fire in the 1960s by religious groups claiming sex ed encouraged teen sex and immoral behavior. These religious groups instead advocate abstinence until marriage to stop kids from having sex.These organizations claim that abstinence works and sex ed promotes premature sex.

5. Arkansas

Lowest Rates:
1. New Hampshire
2. Vermont
4. North Dakota
5. Massachusetts
Assessment Questions
1. Of teens who receive comprehension sex education, what percentage are less likely to have an unintended pregnancy?
2. Has any abstinence-until-marriage program ever delayed teens from having sex?
3. Who is against sex ed programs?
4. What are a few things you can do to help solve this problem?
5. Do you think sexual education should be taught in schools or nah?
A Youth Risk Behavior survey found that sex among high schoolers declined significantly from 1991 to 1997, prior to large government funded abstinence-until-marriage programs.
But changed little from 1999 to 2003 with the abstinence programs.
Analysis of federally funded abstinence curricula found that over 80% of curricula supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services contained false, misleading, or distorted information about reproductive health.
The false information included: effectiveness of contraceptives, risks of abortion, religious beliefs as scientific fact, stereotypes about boys and girls as scientific fact, and medical and scientific errors as fact.

But statistics show that is very untrue.
Studies show that abstinence programs have no effect on when teens engage in sex.
However sex ed and HIV prevention programs have been shown to actually reduce teen pregnancy and STD rates.
A study conducted by Columbia University found that virginity pledge programs increase risk for sex by shunning contraceptive use and lack of teaching about sex.
In that study 88% of the pledge takers had sex before marriage. Std rates rates of the pledgers and non pledgers were the same.
The pledge takers were also more likely to not get STD tested and not use contraceptives during sex.

However, 89% of American adults believe its important for teens to learn about contraceptives and prevention of STDs and that sex ed should focus on how to avoid unintended pregnancy and STDs.
Only 15% of Americans want abstinence only taught in classrooms. People are starting to realize the statistics favor sexual education and more and more schools are implenting comprehensivesex ed programs.

Students can help the problem of lack of sexual education in schools by educating themselves about the topic and push for it in their own schools.
The more sex ed programs in schools, the more people are aware of the risks of STDs and can make better decisions in life.

It also just so happens that the states with the highest teen pregnancy rates are the ones with the least effective sex ed programs, and the lowest rates are from states with very thorough sex education programs.
This shows the effectiveness of sexual education. And the states with the highest rates, dont seem to accept sexual education at all.

Sexual education works to reduce teen pregnancy and STD rate, statistics and studies prove it!

Teen Mom actually decreased teen pregnancy rates by showing kids how troublesome it is to have a kid. In some schools, this is the closest to sexual education that is taught.
Write down on a piece of paper for each group why do you think we need to rely on a TV show to learn about sex?
