Sex Education in Schools Pros and Cons

Cons of sex education in schools:

1- Students may still be subject to embarrassment or excitable by subject matter. This can make for out of control classrooms if students take to laugh or make inappropriate comments.

2- Most schools only teach it as a brief interlude in physical education or health class. This is not enough time to relate effectively to serious material.

3- Often, sexual education can go against moral or religious beliefs of an individual. Many schools do not teach abstinence-only, but to teach how to have sex safely, while many of the religious and family stress marriage before intercourse.

4- People often see sex education as a “recreational” course, and not a serious issue. 

5- Teachers are not always adequately trained to teach sexual education to students. It may violate their own beliefs or morals on the subject rather than continuing with the facts.

6- The attitudes of parents, educators and religious leaders in the community can make the stuff that vary from state to state or even school-to-school.
