Who do you want teaching your child about sex?

Today's Daytona Beach News-Journal announced that another Florida county is considering adding more sex education to its academic curriculum programs. Instead of the "Abstinence-only" program currently being taught in Flagler, officials are now debating whether to switch over to an "Abstinence-plus" program, just like they do in some other parts of Florida.

"Abstinence-plus" refers to a program of teaching not just about refraining from sexual activity altogether, but also about contraceptive options, sexually transmitted diseases, and pregnancy as well.

School Board members are considering the change because Flagler County students have a higher rate of sexually transmitted diseases than neighboring counties, like Volusia. The Student Services Department in Flagler also reported that there are at least 3 pregnant middle school students in Flagler, prompting the School Board to also look at introducing sex education as early as 6th grade.
