Writer's Block: School days
Do you think kids should learn about sex in school, and why?

This is a touchy subject. Some believe that it should be and other are against it. Each adolescent is different in every way. I think it should be something that is offered in school yes. The basis for my answer are strictly opinionated. I believe it should be offered but not required. Some young people benefit from learning in school simply because they are either afraid or weirded out by asking their parent(s) and vice versa. In a classroom is the young person is with peers who learning they are more apt to ask questions and get the required information and input that will be needed. In teaching this subject in school the teacher with a degree in this particular subject can give many views to this subject. They can explain the dangers and the joys of intercourse. The joys are the things parents are more likely to be discouraged to give their kids. But with an educated adult giving them insight and answering their questions it would be less awkward for the adolescent and the parent. Not only will the adolescent learn of the dangers and joys of intercourse, but will more likely than not be able to get referrals to non-profit organizations that will help them. For example, a place that hands out free condoms for safe sex or a clinic that, if needed, will help a young woman who gets pregnant. There are many benefits to offering sexual education in public schools.
