Do middle schools and junior high schools teach sex education and personal health these days?

I've answered a bunch of questions about pregnancy, periods, birth control, and yeast infections. I got taught that in public school when I was 14 back in the progessive mid-1970's. I don't know which is more worrisome, that young women don't know this information or that a middle-aged gay man does.

Probably the same as other subjects these days. Too many young people are highly distracted by frivolous entertainment & ignoring the real possibilites that change their lives. Even when their favorite celebs have serious issues re. pregnancy or sexual discretion, real & on-screen, kids just don't believe it. Parent's are letting Hollywood raise their kids.

Well, when I was in middle school (ten years ago) we had sex ed, which was supposed to be over the course of a week during our gym period. I think the teachers got nervous or something because we only had it for 1 day, and just learned the names of a few organs. So I'm guessing it's just gone downhill from there.

That's a real shame....In middle school, we were taught everything because they didn't want us to get AIDS. That was quite an education for me, let me tell you!

LOL. It was literally a 20-minute movie for us. The generic "this is where babies come from" movie.

Absentee parents are a big part of the problem. Where are they in all this? Letting schools, movies, TV & their kid's friends do all the talking Ridiculous.

They only teach middle school about HIV. I'm in 8th grade they don't teach anything we need to know. Now if you have health questions we have to go to the nurse
