CHICAGO | Students in Illinois public schools that teach sex education will now be taught about birth control and sexually transmitted diseases — not just abstinence.
Why don't we have sex education at our school? Many children are getting pregnant at a young age.
Having comprehensive sex education in schools can be very effective. Studies of abstinence-only education have shown its ineffectiveness to students.
Editor's note: This school year, The Times embarks on a project, the first of its kind in Northwest Indiana, to follow Calumet and Hammond high schools, which are on academic probation.
In a tight office in the back room of a Valparaiso nonprofit, two women and two men work on creating a curriculum for one of education's most controversial topics.
