Sorry, but if you wanted that to change you should have commented. I can't change that now. The reason I made in 5000 was because I didn't want this to be too formal.

School is a place of learning
School is no doubt a place of education. That's where we send our students to learn. We learn about mostly everything in school why would you oppose something as basic as human sexuality.

Parents have limited knowledge about sex
Ask your parents about this right now and see how many they get right. All the parts of the female reproductive system, all the parts of the male reproductive system, all glands responsible in reproduction and puberty, all the stages in male and female puberty, what are all of the major STDs, their causes, their signs and symptoms and how to prevent them, what protection do you need to use during Cunnilingus, all of the major birth control methods, their cost, effectiveness and how to use them. Unless you have a doctor or sex ed teacher for a parent then most likely they got half of these wrong. My arguments are going to be mostly based of of the Ontario curriculum. Maybe if you ask an american sex ed teacher this they wouldn't know, but a Canadian or a least an Ontarian one would. These are the things that students learn in sex ed and though they might not think it is important some of this information can save their life. Knowing the parts of the reproductive system can help them better communicate with doctors if they have any problems, knowing the forms of birth control can help them know what's best for them, knowing symptoms of an STD can help them know if they need to go to the doctors. Most teens most likely wouldn't seek out this information they know condoms exist and heterosexual sex is penis in vagina, but if all of the sudden they got blisters and fever symptoms they wouldn't know they had herpes until it was too late. We don't ask parents to teach their kids how the respiration system works. Why should we tell them to teach kids about sexuality.

Teens are sexually active
46% of teens have had sexual intercourse[1]. So the least we can do is make sure that they know how to be safe when they have it.
