Your Call 011008 Sex Ed in the Era of Ubiquitous Porn

What should sex-ed be teaching kids today? On the next Your Call we discuss where kids raised in the Internet age learn about sex and what schools and parents should be telling them. A December report said teen pregnancy was up 3% in 2005, the biggest increase since the first George Bush was president. Is the rising teen pregnancy rate a rebuke to abstinence-only classes? When any and every sexual act is available with the click of a mouse, what should middle and high schools be teaching their students about pregnancy, STDs, intimacy and abstinence? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
