Sex Education A Necessary Resource Introduction Sex education should provide valuable information to teenagers and preteens so that they may make more informed choices about their sexuality and it must be taught to its fullest extent However some politicians would have schools teaching abstinence-only sex education which leaves children uninformed about many options open to them Some leaders would have parents be the ones to discuss sexual topics with their children However current data indicates that fewer and fewer parents feel free enough to openly discuss sex with their children Sex education must be taught in all schools with abstinence clearly presented as the safest method while also reviewing the other available options Evidence Today children will most likely learn about sex in some way besides the classroom and this limited knowledge about sex may continue until they learn the facts in sex education classes Burnett writes that schools begin to teach pupils about condoms in Grade sic 7 and 8 By the time preteens reach grades seven and eight they are at least twelve years old Many will know the basics of sex and may have experimented with it before they learned about the dangers If they are reached at an earlier age in fifth or sixth grade when they are eleven and twelve they may be discouraged from sexual experimentation Sex education should not be taught once or twice but should be an on-going process through which they learn more and more The dangers mechanics and biology of sex must be addressed as preteens develop into teenagers and young adults The first topic to be presented should be the dangers of sex because this information identifies the highest threat to their health and most valuable wisdom to the students As students grow older they will need to learn more specific information such as the types of birth control and how to use them effectively
