Forum 2: Debate on Comprehensive Sexuality Education Due Sunday Janurary 25th 3pm
Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (http://www.siecus.org/) (SIECUS) recommends a comprehensive approach to sexuality Education. Read the article Pop Culture Sex Ed: What Media Teaches Us About Sexual Health (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/deb-levine/sex-ed_b_859192.html), and reflect on the questions, “At what age should sexuality Education begin in a public school setting? Is public or community Education an appropriate manner to teach sexuality? What should the curriculum include or exclude? Who should be responsible for developing and approving the curriculum?” Respectfully debate these questions with your peers.
