As a former student, I always found it strange that my school never taught proper sex education. The only "sex education" I learned was not nearly enough to emphasize the topics that students need to learn as they are encountering their first sexual experiences. Teaching sex education from an absintence only view is (I'm sorry but I'm just gonna say it) not effective, students are gonna have sex, whether you teach them safe sex or not. South Carolina's STD rate is growing more rapidly than any other state in the United States, do you want your child to have an STD because you refused to let them learn sex education and be informed on something that is going to happen regardless? Sexual Assaults and Rapes are also a problem as students aren't learning about proper consent!!! So anyway yeah I started a petition because I think this is something that my former school and the rest of the county needs to bring importance to.
