∞ New York City Will Mandate Sex Education [NYT]

For the first time in nearly two decades, students in New York City’s public middle and high schools will be required to take sex-education classes beginning this school year, using a curriculum that includes lessons on how to use a condom and the appropriate age for sexual activity.

My primary worry is that the curriculum (HealthSmart and Reducing the Risk) will focus too much on abstinence. Of course it’s the best way to avoid pregnancy and STIs. But is it realistic?
