In a new article on teen sex, teen girls are 30% more likely than boys to have unprotected sex, especially initially. http://www.webmd.com/parenting/news/20101107/unprotected-sex-teens. African-American teens 41% more likely than whites to have unprotected sex first time. This is true even if they have had sex education. The key is if they “love and trust their partner” they are more likely to shun protection. How do we use this information? First go back and look at the curriculum to see how the information was provided. Next look at the teachers and see how it was presented. Third, educate the parents. If learning in school isn’t the answer, then learning at home must play an important role.
