Sex education is wildly supported by numerous prestigious health and medical organizations. Unfortunately some parent"s do not understand the importance of sex education in middle and high school, And also they do not discuss any sex education topics with their children: they say such classes encourage the teenagers to experience with sex too soon.
Moreover, In some countries there is no sex education at all, And any information about sex and sexuality is told and passed only in private or isn"t told at all. So a lot of teenagers are uneducated in this sphere, They do not even understand why should they use protection while indulging in any kind of sexual act. Furthermore, Sex education is not only about birth control, It"s also about preventing child sexual abuse and sexually transmitted diseases

Sex education in schools are opposed by most of the parents because some feel it as their responsibility to teach their children all about sex, Whereas some feel it is against their religious ideology, Some parents even think their kid would feel embarrassed to learn it as a topic with their friends in school.

It won't be taking more time to educate children all about sex. However when sex education is included as a course or a subject, Not all children would have the same mentality to learn that, They may not wish to take that as a subject, Where we cannot force them to learn it. Also teachers who would be teaching children on it may feel embarrassed to cover the topic with proper study material in front of all in a classroom.

Sex education, As any other kind of education, Is designed to help young people gain the information. It should be provide by professionals, Which ones most parents might not be.

>Sex education in schools are opposed by most of the parents because some feel it as their responsibility to teach their children all about sex

According to the voting on 'thestudentroom. Co. Uk" only
4. 46% from 1859 persons which have voted are talking with their parents about sex.
65. 79% have never had such conversations. The problem is not only in misunderstandings between generations, But in parents who are unprepared for such kinds of discussions. The teacher should be prepared for the class, No matter if he/she wants it or not. The topic should be covered in any way. But most parents are starting such kinds of talks with the question 'Do you already know about sex? " and after that a big part of people feel embarrassed and keep silence.

>Whereas some feel it is against their religious ideology.

Sooner or later most of people have sex in their lives as a natural part of it. Some cultures and religions ban sex before marriage (which is a controversial issue itself too), But nothing is able to ban KNOWLEDGE. Especially those ones more or less everyone of us will need later in life. Just knowledge about sex itself and some peculiarities of human body doesn"t encourage teenagers to have sex sooner than they are really prepared and want to. It is medically accurate to be ready for this kind of activity, That"s all.

>Also teachers who would be teaching children on it may feel embarrassed to cover the topic with proper study material in front of all in a classroom.
But to my mind in this case the controversial issue is not sex education itself but inappropriate kinds of teachers. Teacher should be adequately trained to teach his subject.

The next point is in the nature of teenagers. They are under a pressure due to hormones. So in any case many of high school students have sex. So s/ed cannot make them go and do something, If they didn't want that before. They want it and they are doing it, But the question is, Are they actions safe for their health or not, Because sex/ed nowadays does not only teach the danger of sexual intercourse, But also teaches the way to avoid such danger and to be safe. And here we are talking not only about unwanted pregnancies, But also about sexually transmitted infections.

@poui The situation you are laying out is highly unrealistic. A simple solution would be a standard curriculum which is peer reviewed, Practical and as thought provoking as any other subject taught in school, Than just feeding the ideas straight to the students.

CON: Sex education in school usually means separating parents from their children, And often more about indoctrinating than education, Which is why some schools don't even notify or allow parents to opt out. Our young people are bombarded with dumb ideas about sex and marriage on a daily basis from Hollywood and culture and then mock the good ideas. Without partnering with parents they are easily manipulated once they leave high school since they don't teach these compliance tactics. Which is why parents need to be involved and have the option to home-education as schools have become political targets to push the lgbt agenda, And disassociating sex from its life-giving properties.

Highly doubt the Con can give good arguments against Sex education in School. It would either be bad arguments or a theistic argument.
