Think about how you learned about sex. Don’t write it here, but feel free to journal about it privately. How much of a role did your schools play in your sex education?
Then read the following two blog posts written by Dr. Laats: “Sex Sells, but Who’s Buying?” and “The Talk: Sex Ed at Us & Them.”
After journaling (or sitting there thinking) about your own experience and reading the two blog posts, respond to the following question: what role have public schools played in sex education? Don’t answer what role they should play, since that is the next blog post over. Instead, I’m interested in talking about what you think, based on your experience and what you’ve seen in schools today, the role schools play in educating students about sex.
