The Caliber of Sex-Ed Instruction in Public Schools

The Delivery of the Message - PSPN Staff Writer

The public controversy centered around sex education in public schools has shifted. Where the question was once whether or not sexual education should be taught in public schools, the fray now questions the methodology of what is being taught. The division exist between advocates of an "abstinence only" approach (supported by the "No Child Left Behind Act") versus the more traditional sexuality programs that include the correct usage and protective qualities of contraceptives. Many parents however, find themselves more concerned about the environment their children find themselves exposed to when sex-education classes are being taught.
