About the Author
I exist for many reasons and one reason is to learn from others and help others learn from me. I believe I exist because I am a story that is on display, kind of like a library where each book has a unique story behind it even when it is hard to understand. Basically, I am one of the unique stories that is hard to understand, but I make sense in the end. Will I be helpful for the greater good of people’s lives? Maybe not because I cannot help everyone that comes my way; that is not how life works
My story may seem basic, but it is a life lesson for me. Growing up, I would always fall asleep in class, getting left behind and failing my tests. I would get zeros back to back on tests but I would know all my material with my eyes closed. I would earn A’s on my class work and homework, but I could not pass my tests. I am not going to lie; I am still not perfect with tests, but my mind is getting stronger. Although my tests are still not progressing, the most important part of everything I’m telling you is I’m not giving up on myself or my education. I push myself harder than before.
What I can tell you through my life story is that you should never give up on something that’s bringing you down; for your greater good, always keep pushing because you will eventually get to the end point.
What is sex education? In my opinion sex education is the instruction on issues relating to human sexuality including emotional relationships and responsibilities, human reproductive anatomy, and sexual activity. I choose this topic to let my reader know that sex education should be a mandatory class world-wide, so every student can have it. Sex education is designed to help young people gain important information and skills to make a healthy decision about sex and sexuality throughout their lives.
If the reader understands the generation we have right now and takes a closer look, you would understand where I am coming from. It is dangerous to not educate these youth about their body and what to expect when they are talking about sex. People might ask, “Is it appropriate to teach sex in school.” Not every parent will agree with teaching their child about sex as well as there are some teachers who do not think it is their place to teach it. Some parents would rather have the schools teach because they do not want to go through the talk that will make both of them uncomfortable. Overall, sex is a topic you cannot escape.
Finally, the world should care about this topic because sex education is an important topic to discuss. Schools world-wide should implement sexual education in their curriculum to ensure all students receive quality information on this topic. There are 50 states in the United States, but only 22 states require this curriculum. In the U.S. and other countries, a lot of kids are getting their information from the internet and other kids, which means they may be receiving wrong information. In closing, it is imperative that schools teach students about human sexuality
Sex education is an important topic in a student’s academic career. Only 22 states and the District of Columbia require that public schools teach sex education. This leaves a billion of other kids without sex education, which is leading to kids being moms and dads at a young age and leaving them with all types of sexually transmitted diseases. The board of education is not giving the students the most needed topic in pre-teen and teenagers’ educational learning. Teenagers are learning from other people instead of Health teachers. When students are learning from other people, they don’t know if they are getting the right information from the person they are taking information from. Sex education needs to be a required part of the middle and high school curriculum worldwide.
Here you will lesrn about the importance of sex ed and how it impact our dayly lives.sex education is a powerful topic to lrean because of thefacts thats how our grenetions keeps going .im this resecaerch paper you will come to an understandment on why
” Each year U.S. teens are under the age of 18 and experiencing as many as 850,000 pregnancies” .teens need youth-friendly services.the youth needs accurate information about sex ed in order to protect themselves from getting stuck in a situation they don’t mean to be Stuck in (unintended pregnancy ).they need to have a positive future for themselves which falls in to careers ,healthy relationship and getting themselves on track.young women who are teens mother are less likely to attain to high school diploma by the age 22 then those who are not.
“Among high school students nearly half report having engaged in sexual activity (one third are currently active” . high school students are sexually active which is perfectly fine but do know what they doing know what they partner have what goes through a sexually active student mind when that getting ready for business. Sexual education class will be a good help to student and i advise for children worldwide to take the .three reason to take the class one: to know what the student doing and what they getting they self into two:if the student parents know about the class maybe they won’t be so over the student or second guess they child on where they been that student will be comfortable of talking to they parent about what they sexual lives they will feel little at ease.
” Sexuilty education programs that start in kindergraden and continue through 12th grade” .sexual programs can be a help to kids worldwide because some teenagers might have access to school so they have free programs for them to join to be aware of the world of sex i believe it will be a good idea if they start lesson in kindergarten , i don’t think they need whole lesson on the topic ,but it would be nice for the teacher to bring it up out of nowhere sometimes,just to explain a bit about the topic .but if teacher see the student getting bored or confused they can just change the subject . Don’t you believe it’s a shame that’s some our older youth go through a stage were they weirded out ,when they learn about sex. But if you start from kindergranding the child will already know about it an won’t be as shocked because it always been spoken about it throughout their childhood. Plus you don’t have to do so much work talking about the basic to the child.
” Americans would agree that it’s not a good idea for high school students to be sexually active.But the fact is, many of them are more than 40 percent by age 17, some surveys indicate teenagers are sexually active”.i believe some teenagers shouldn’t be sexual active just because how they minds are set up some youth are not in the state to believe they are ready for sex I believe they are just follow other people because they have a feeling being left out of conversation or the trend. “Two-thirds of teens who have sex wish they had waited” which states they are feeling really low about what they had did and should’ve have thought about what they had they did but was caught up in the moment and didn’t have time to react.
Chapter 2: health
“Sex education is the provision of information about bodily development, sex, sexuality, and relationships, along with skills building to help young people communicate about and make informed decisions regarding sex and their sexual health”. Sex eases stress; stress is a healthy problem you can have mild headaches ,lack of sleeping and etc. being close to your partner physically and emotionally can lower stress one having sex with partner ,the body release the endorphin prolaction. Which lead to drowsiness and general feeling of relaxation sex can boosts self esteem .sex is like food it’s only a big deal when you’re not getting enough of it completely. Lack of sex can be harmful.
Sex can make you smart having sex can change your brain chemistry in different kinds of ways sex actually increase your cognitive capacity.If a teenager is sexually active and when a lot of stress having sex can ease some of that stress off, a teenager shouldn’t have sex offer but too much sex is very bad and unhealthy but just a good amount of sex is just right for the teenager body.”health is a very important instant for sexual education because u need to know if you have the right coverage when u are having sex and Communicate about sexuality and sexual health”
Chapter three :Education
It is important for all schools to teach sex education. With sex education incorporated in the school curriculum, children will learn about emotional relations and responsibilities, human sexual anatomy, reproductive health and rights plus more. Children will not be learning all the topics all together; it will be separated throughout the grades; For example, Sixth through Eighth grade students will learn the basics on sex education, and when the children reach high school, they can learn the higher level information related to sex education.
Sixth graders will learn puberty and the causes of it :why it’s important to go through it , sixth graders probably will get very embarrassed or they would say sex is gross but they will learn BC (birth control) and safer sex control and how to put on a condom, Behavioral methods and hormonal methods . Seven graders be reviewing what they learn last years and they will start to get in the dating game and bodies will be changing in the process in seventh grade students know more then they parents expects they will learn to make decision as in relationship and be curious about certain things they will change in clothing and like it or not learn about porngraphy.
Eighth grader will get to learn a little the body and review everything you learned. Once you hit high school u can study the raw information on what u suppose to Learn i believe sex education can lower teen pregnancy rate and abortions. I think it can make disease less than what it is and making clam down a little.my experience in high is we learn subject beware in high school we in freshman year we learn about drugs and alcoholic ,sophomore year we learn about driver education , and Junior year we learn about sex education and in my opinion that’s a little too late for that because junior already sixteen-eighteen years old half of the class probably have sexual inter course
Chapter 4: Religion
Some religion family in the northeast montana.They do not speak a word about sexuality in their homes,some family gives they kids traditional ‘book and a box’ of knowledge,when it’s time to take the class in school they parents had opp them out.Most religions celebrate wholeness for all people including children and youth,most believe that sexuality is a gift of the divine.religious leaders lift up the child as a symbol of hope many still profess ,that we must protect our children and youth from education about sexuality.
“Fundamentalist Christians and their allies say giving young people the information they need to protect themselves sends the wrong message and implies that it’s all right to have sex,” but is that really how all Christians think or is it just the the strict ones? Why do some religious people have to put certain topics into bad categories; sex is just an activity, and if your child is sent to the right class she/he won’t have to go through not knowing or learn from others . “Religious Right groups insist that public schools stress medically inaccurate, fear-based messages that attempt to scare young people instead of inform them”. Why scare the youth about sex? Why not tell them the rights and wrongs on what to do when they are in the situation involving sex . This generations of the youth know more then what the parents expect. Religion or not the youth will find things about sexual education. Parents can’t take it away unless they are homeschooling them. Students that follow a religion or they follows a certain kind of traditions from they family. Can still learn about sex but only to an extend to where they can know what it is and still have information on it and when they get eighteen or whatever the age might be appropriate they can learn the rest either from the family or wherever.
“Christian organization brought a speaker to a local high school who spread a lot of.inaccurate information that condoms don’t work and that premarital sexual activity can lead to infertility or even death.” I believe Christians should not be spreading information like that around local high school because it not really they business to tell other people children to don’t depends on condoms because it bad for you and you might stuffer from death or lead to infertility.
Chapter 5: China vs. America
China is country that is overpopulated and it have a massive health problem over there from sexual education to bad pollution in the air china have a serious issues.I believe it children in china take sex education there will be no problem with the one child policy because people in china will know the wrong and the right.Things in china will be different.In the United States in the health industry is not that bad the only issues would be that teenage pregnancy ,STD , rate will go down because they will know what and how to protect themselves.
“China massive population the year-on-year growth rate among young people is around 35% September 2016 , they have 13,000 new hiv infection within 15-24” China create more disease all country world wide.”Abortion is birth control in china for many young women abortions is their primary form of birth control. “Statics shows ,more than 13 millions abortions are performed in china every year. “Many women have abortions because they lack basic sex.women in china is getting a lot of abortions because they haven’t gotten the aid when they was young,so they are doing what they know best.
America is a country they provide sex education or absence only classes. “Sex Education is widely supported by the vast majority of people in the United States.93 percent of parents supported having sex education taught in middle school, and 96 percent of parents supported having sex education taught in high school.” Those percentages show America have more aide in sex educations and there a little less abortions and pregnancy . America have alot More stability in sex education then china.”Currently, 24 states and the District of Columbia mandate sex education and 34 states mandate HIV education”. The United States have much more to provide to the citizen of the United States. “Since the 1980s, sex education in China and the US has a considerable development, especially in China, who has gradually broke through the sexual taboo and come to the track of scientific education. Both of them have realized the importance of sex education.” (https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED533567.pdf) but in times china had to fall off on sex educations because of the one child policy.
“China and the US, there are three fundamental purposes for sex education in schools. Firstly, it aims to promote the health development of students’ physical and psychological mentality”
Statistic shows student are saying most sex education programs are not a help to them because they are out-of touch, outdated, and lack information they need to know that can actually be useful to them. Where can students get the information from when they don’t have the full information they need to know about sex? Some students are shy to the point where they are highly embarrassed about asking questions about sex to the teacher. Here is a solution: They can ask their closest teachers, the guidance counselor, their older cousins, or one of their parents they feel closer to. Another solution is the Health teacher can put a question box in the classroom for the students to write questions anonymously, and then the teacher can look in the box and answer the questions.
How can students take that leadership role in their own sex education? Well teens are a big impacts on social media, teens PEP that’s runs in New Jersey and North Carolina, there are programs that provides sex educations to their peers in schools. Can educators build trust among cultural and faith communities that are different from their own: heart women and girls with academic research institutions to better understand the sexual and reproductive health needs communities .which offer professional development.
