    Do other public schools have something like this, where the parents/guardians have to sign a form allowing the school permission to allow their children to participate?

    Either way, irresponsible parenting runs rampant - in my experience this will ALWAYS be the case. My point is - how much parenting of these children do we do? How much are we responsible for?

    There are children that come to school dressed inappropriately. Do we clothe them?

    There are children that come to school and the only meals they receive are from the free/reduced breakfast and lunch program - but are we then responsible for feeding them dinner?

    I'm not trying to sound like a cold hearted bitch here.. but there are things that parents and parents alone should be responsible for, and teaching them about contraception is one of them.
    I don't think that all parents that fail to give their kid a good, thorough sex talk are the ones that disapprove of sex ed. In fact, I think generally, most parents try to give some sort of sex talk to their kids, some are extremely thorough, others pretty much say wait til you're married and that's it, and then there are most parents who are most likely in between and/or a mix of the two.

    Sometimes parents want their children to know about sex, but they just aren't comfortable with telling them. Other parents may be comfortable telling their kids what they know, but they feel that they don't really know a lot or that they don't know enough.

    I will say that with the internet, it is easier to get information today about sex, contraceptives, and STDs than it was even 10 years ago. But there are still people who either don't have a computer or are just not able to use their computer easily enough to get the information. Of course, even with the information, there would still be those people who just aren't comfortable talking with their kids about sex, even if they don't actually disapprove of sex education.

    Meanwhile, we fall further and further behind in basic mathematics, language skills, science, and history.

    Kids these days are stupid. But they know the proper way to **** without getting pregnant, even though they don't follow that either.

    If kids get pregnant, they usually drop out of school and dont' learn math, etc.

    Studies show very clearly that comprehensive sex ed (with teaching birth control) reduces teen pregnancy.

    Many studies also show that abstinence-only education is a complete failure at preventing teen pregnancy.

    Yet, teen pregnancy is skyrocketing and more than 80 percent of minority children are born out of wedlock.

    For every kid that is convinced to use a condom, perhaps two more are convinced that teen sex is socially acceptable.

    But you are just speculating. The actual studies show that teen pregnancy is reduced by teaching comprehensive sex ed (abstinence and birth control) but abstinence-only doesn't work.

    BTW, teen pregnancy was going down until the Bush administration pushed for abstinence-only, then it started back up. And it's higher in states that promote abstinence only.

    Teen sex is totally acceptable and I wholeheartedly endorse it.

    Teens don't need sex-ed to convince them to have sex; their penises/vaginas convince them to.

    No but I wouldn't have a problem with it even if I did.

    Now you respond "well you don't know what it's like" and dismiss my opinion and we'll end it there.

    And sex ed classes convince them that it's perfectly okay and natural, so as long as you have a box of condoms, **** to your heart's content.
