Are safer sex educational programs working in the schools?
Nov 22, 1999
do you think safe sex programs are taught well in school? And if they are do you think they work?
Response from Mr. Sowadsky
Thank you for your question.
There is no single answer to your question since the quality and success of safer sex, AIDS, and STD educational programs varies tremendously from one school to another. Some schools provide excellent, comprehensive, and successful programs. Other schools provide programs that are not very successful. And still other schools provide no educational programs at all on this subject. The following postings from our website should provide you with more insight on this topic.
