Religious groups have moral intentions by insisting that abstinence only programs be taught in the school systems, but it is the student’s right to be armed with the facts. Despite religious opposition and debate over the method in which it should be taught, early sex education in public schools is still the best defense against many teen-related sexual issues and is highly supported among the American population (NPR). Sex education should give students non-biased information. A scientific methodology would educate and inform them about biological and physical issues without imposing religious or ethical beliefs. “Attempts to impose narrow moralistic views about sex and sexuality on young people through sex education have failed.” (Forrest) This is apparent when reviewing the number of sexually active teenagers despite the current abstinence based programs that are promoted in schools.
There has always been a debate about whether are not are not children should be vaccinated before entering into the school system. Vaccinations are a means to keep children safe from diseases, while they are attending schools and daycares. Some children are not being immunized due to reasons such as religious belief, medical reasons, and side effects. Children should be vaccinated before attending school and daycare; it is for their protection as well as other children. There are many controversial issue of whether or not to vaccinate children.

Demetrius Crouch Honors English 3 Mrs. Beveridge April 14, 2013 HIV/AIDS: Abstract HIV/AIDS is a disease that anyone that is practicing unsafe sex or sharing needles can contract.

Confusion and misinformation is what leads most teenagers to make uneducated choices in their sexual activities. With the information obtained, this can show people that there needs to be a policy change. We need to keep the sex education information flowing in the school systems and be more open to public discussion. It’s important to maintain comprehensive information in regards to sex education. Parents should take a more active role in determining the information and content that is provided to their children in regards to what is taught about sex education.
Throughout the article, “Selling Safe Sex in Public Schools”, Michelle Bryant effectively uses the experiences of Shelby Knox to argue that teaching safe sex is more important than teaching abstinence, despite public belief. Teenagers are now raised in a “sex-sells” type of environment and the idea of abstinence is unfortunately becoming increasingly incomprehensible and impractical. Although the concept of safe sex is still highly detested among specific cultures, many agree that it is pretty logical from a preventative standpoint. Bryant demonstrates logos when she states that in Shelby Knox’s home town, Lubbock, Texas, their sexual education courses are solely based on abstinence and ironically have some of the highest STD and teen pregnancy rates in the nation (Bryant 872). This demonstrates that teaching abstinence is not only ineffective, but also unfeasible in the company of curious teens.
As an alternative, some schools also now offer comprehensive education. This approach offers and provides more insight on sex education in which one can be better prepared for real life situations such as std’s and unwanted pregnancies. Although both these methods of teaching offer insight on sex education, it has been proven that they are not as successful as one may think. Sex among teens, as well as teen pregnancies, is at an all time high verifying that “teenage pregnancy has a lot more to do with what it means to be a teenager than with how someone gets pregnant” (Quindlen 297). Suggesting that sex is more of an ethical issue, sex education is merely facts built upon foundations that have already been instilled in teens.
Students with intellectual disabilities are at a greater risk for sexually transmitted diseases, more likely to be victims of sexual abuse, and socially inapt as compared to their non-disabled peers. The Center for Disability Information and Referrals supports sex education and believe it is crucial education that may be life saving. Students with intellectual disabilities, under federal law, Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), have the right to the same standard curriculum as their non-disabled peers. Students with intellectual disabilities often go into adulthood sexually ignorant and IEP teams are not consistent with the requirements of the federal law often leaving the task solely to the parents.
