Matthew Laria 08/15/2014 Sex Ed Rm 101 Wow who would have thought sex education would be such a touchy subject in the school system. I remember when I was in school it was the old banana condom routine in my sex education class. And the horrible mono toned dieses videos that you wanted to fall asleep because it was so boring but you couldn’t because it was so disgusting. See what parents seem to forget is they were young once they went to school where they were taught about sex and I bet they learned a lot from it. But in today’s society it’s a follow the leader kind of thing. One parent says its wrong gives a few reasons on why and suddenly everyone’s against it, instead of stopping and thinking about where they learned about sex. The teaching of sex education back in the early days was good but it never developed as the years went on.
