Sexual education should include not only medically-accurate and age-appropriate information about reproduction and pregnancy and STI prevention, but should also address healthy relationships, sexual violence, consent, self esteem, LGBTQ health and identity, and domestic violence.
Did you know that the current Kentucky state standards are so vague that both teachers and administrators are not sure what they can and cannot teach? Sexual education in the Fayette County Public Schools is piecemeal and varies widely across the district and even within schools, with some classrooms teaching comprehensive sex education and others teaching only about abstinence. The quality of education that a student receives should not depend on their zip code or economic status!
Our students and teachers deserve better.
