I realize that Comprehensive Sex Ed is more effective than abstinence only. My post was about how com. sex ed was a failure for me at my school, because
A) my teacher was an incompetent waffle-head who had no right teaching anyone anything ever.
B) my class size was too big, as my school system was overcrowded and underfunded, as many city systems are.
C) There was no way I could get the individual questions I had answered without being totally mocked by my peers, and there was no way to do this without one on one attention (aside from breaking down our natural modesty in the group setting, and that’s something that should never be done)
D) One quarter (what my school decided to squish it into) is not enough time to teach it. We had too many lessons each day and it all ran together.
So in the meantime, until we live in a perfect word where Comp Sex Ed can be bought ideally, it will fail. Most people will be “Just fine” but some will get left behind, and that just isn’t acceptable. Until then, I believe it’s the parent’s job to be the primary teacher in the child’s life, and to at leas supervise what’s being taught and how it should be supplemented at home.
