Pinellas youth have the right to lead healthy lives. They need sex education that is honest, complete, and accurate.
Quality sex education includes information about sex, sexuality, relationships, contraception and condoms, and how to protect yourself and plan your future. Sex education programs need to be informed by evidence as well as include all the information and skills young people need to make healthy decisions. Providing young people with the skills and tools to make healthy decisions about sex and relationships is far more effective than denying them information and simply telling them not to have sex.
Send a message now to the Pinellas County Board of Education urging implementation of comprehensive sex ed in our schools.
