Sex Education Works

In Canton, Ohio, there are are 490 female students at Timken High School. 65 of those students are pregnant. 13% of the girls are pregnant! The article doesn't mention how many girls already have babies though. Of course they wouldn't and couldn't report how many had abortions.

Apparently the Sex Eductation courses are quite effective in Canton. Someone needs to tell the school board that Sex Eduction isn't supposed to be a How-To course.

This is the inevitable result of telling kids that they're going to have sex anyway so you might as well do it right. With acedemic rates as low as they are, why would anyone expect the kids to learn "safe sex" any better than they're learning algebra? Oh, my mistake, it's "safer sex" now isn't it?

I couldn't find the original article that the link above refers too.
