The superintendent of schools in Crane, Texas is rethinking the districts sexual education curriculum, after learning that 20 of the high schools 300 students have tested positive for chlamydia.
Jim Rummage told television station KFOR, "We do have an abstinence curriculum, and that evidently ain’t working. We need to do all we can, although it’s the parents’ responsibility to educate their kids on sexual education.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention isn't mincing any words, calling the outbreak a health issue of epidemic proportions.
I love this part about the abstinence program, "That evidently ain't working."
Gee ya think?
There is already exhaustive research which proves that abstinence education does not work and yet due to mostly religiously driven fears sexuality people are still buying into the idea that telling a hormonal teenager not to let their naughty bits touch will actually work.
It does not work, and it never has.
Hell, I'M proof of that.
It is just too bad that so many of these kids had to come down with STDs before the adults in their lives were able to recognize their ignorance.
