    The "Fistgate" incident

    OK...I KNOW you dont like the sites...but...it DOES come with pictures, audio, and transcripts.

    Once it has been clearly established, the bigger question is and should be...does it MATTER?

    I REALLY thought this was pretty common knowledge. Thats why I expressed incredulity that people are being threatened with criminal charges for teaching basic sex education.

    There's clear evidence that proper sex education leads to lower rates of teen pregnancy and even abortion. This includes the potential dangers in unprotected sex, the fact that no contraceptive is 100% effective, information about STDs, etc. (without distorting facts. some christian schools have taught things like condoms having a 20% failure rate)

    To try and ban this sort of education is to be in favor of teen pregnancy, basically.

    As opposed to ID/Creationism which is just; The Bible says it that means it must be true. In addition the scientific community hasnt declared Evolution theory being closed, it will probably be always an open and ever changing theory.

    **** off.
    Does the state board of education have the right to override laws? It would be helpful to know WHO put this requirement in place (i.e. state legislature vs. state BOE).

    Not all teenagers are hormonal horndogs. These teachers should be prosecuted. Sexual education should be up the parents, not the schools. If anything they can teach kids about std's and the dangers of unprotected sex, but they shouldn't be teaching them how to have save sex or endorsing such behavior. Personally, I don't think all kids are mentally ready to be exposed to sexual material or concepts, it also instills values into their minds that it's ok to sleep around and live as sexually immoral as you want. If they must teach this, why not balance it with abstinence?

    It's not a matter of letting people who want to live in the stone age if they want to. It's a matter of letting those who want to live in the stone age be dragged back by those who do.

    Just because a kid knows what a condom is doesn't mean they know how to use it correctly.

    Studies have shown that children are extremely uncomfortable talking about sex with their parents, and I read one study that said both kids and their parents feel better having a medium, such as a teacher or a counselor, when talking about sex.

    Or maybe those kids have parents who can better afford getting them abortions when they need it.

    We already do abstinence sex education. The issue is when it comes to masturbation and sex. Not every teen feels comfortable talking about sex with their parents. For some of those teens, the only way they can come to understand sex is through experimentation if it isn't explained. That could prove dangerous and unhealthy to the teen.

    Should it be taught in public schools? No, not in an ordinary class room environment, I don't think so. Instead, I think all schools should arrange for a sex counselor to have a private meeting with every teen and his/her parents to explain sex, masturbation, sexuality, and relationships with them.

    That way, teens can get the sex education they need with a parent present and have it done in a private way. It also gives teens someone they can talk frankly to about sex and their sexuality by introducing them to the sex counselor.

    I think this way would be better than some of the other ways teens learn about sex at that age, which is through trial and error, which can be dangerous, or through the internet, which could be dangerous and misinformed.

    The state legislature did. It's a new law, not a regulation.

    yeah, pretty much all of them are.

    This is absolutely nuts.

    Change the law then.

    If anything they can teach kids about std's and the dangers of unprotected sex,
    I thought you just said it was up to the parents.

    but they shouldn't be teaching them how to have save sex or endorsing such behavior.
    They aren't. That's idiotic.

    Personally, I don't think all kids are mentally ready to be exposed to sexual material or concepts, it also instills values into their minds that it's ok to sleep around and live as sexually immoral as you want.
    No, it doesn't, and study after study proves it.

    If they must teach this, why not balance it with abstinence?
    It does. Most states have a requirement to include abstinence as part of the curriculum.
