Sex Education Now - Is What Students in Boston Public Schools are Asking For


Boston’s City Council chambers were full of hundreds of teenage students from the Boston school district on Tuesday night. Many of the teenagers were holding signs that read “Sex Education now.”

What the Students Hoped to Gain

It seems their main goal was free condoms and a more in-dept sexual education class. Teenagers know how to have sex and many teens practice daily. However, what they want to know is more about the actions and consequences that come with having sex. Many if not all sexually active (and non-sexual active) teens do not know if they can get pregnant from oral sex. These teens want answers to all their questions. They do not want to be told, “Don’t have sex and you will not have to worry about it.”

What the School District Plans to Do

Nine of the school already hands out free condoms to students. A new program will educate students on recognizing unhealthy relationships, understanding and being supportive of gay, lesbian and bi-sexual teens as well as helping some students with gender identity issues.


These teenagers also want to learn about sexually transmitted diseases. It is clear from the statistics that a seventy percent jump in sexually transmitted diseases in an eight time period sex education is needed now!
