Re: Do You Agree with Texas Public Schools Dropping Health Education Classes?

I absolutely agree with this decision. We as parents have not only the honor, but the responsibility of raising well informed and educated children. Our youths' mental and physical health is up to the family unit to perpetuate. Our teens and pre teens should have learned to communicate and ask questions from their parents. There is no excuse for any parent not to have the appropriate information for their children. We have at our disposal, family physicians, libraries, and certainly a wealth of information via the web.
I do believe that a 9th grader or high school student is most capable of having moral, ethical, and emotional maturity to make informed decisions about abstinence. The question is whether they have the maturity to understand sexual relationships and the ramifications that they carry.
