A Skeptical Look at Sex Ed

A session at FtBConscience 2

Sunday 2nd February, 2014

5:00pm to 6:00pm

Sex education in the United States is in crisis. Many schools are still teaching ineffective, religiously-based abstinence-only sex education, and few states require sex education to be based on science and medicine. Even when comprehensive sex ed is taught, topics like homosexuality and sexual pleasure are left out. Ginny, Benny, and Miri discuss their experience as sex educators, their perspectives on the issues facing sex ed in the United States, and where to go from here.
