Parents in Virginia need to know that the state board of education in Richmond is at work preparing the sex ed curriculum for all public schools beginning in the fall, 2021. Be aware of trends: New Jersey just added ‘anal sex’ to its learning standards for eighth graders. That being the case, Virginia well may add the same standard to its curriculum, too.
Lawmakers in Richmond last winter made sure that the sex ed curriculum includes all manner of sexual material when they handed their mandate to the board of education. That includes the accommodation of transgender (TG) students in using restrooms, shower and dressing rooms of their identified gender. For example, girls will have biological males using their facilities regardless of modesty.
In addition, TG students will dress as they gender-identify and be called by their chosen name and pronouns. If I tell you I am…

Is the intent of the course to teach the 8th graders prudent fear to understand that engaging in anal sex because of the high medical risks of transmitting HIV or other diseases listed in the following CDC article?
Same as Christians teach the wisdom to fear the Lord to avoid risk in life in body and spirit.
If the purpose is to not teach fear and instead teach them that it is sexually permissible to engage in anal sex they are being brainwashed to engage in risking, shortening, or living with a communicable disease for the rest of their lives to obtain momentary sexual pleasure.
In other words, parents need school vouchers or school choice in the USA, in my opinion, to teach wise prudent fear for both body and spiritual wisdom how to live a long and full life.
Long life is in her (wisdom) right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor (Proverb 3:16).

We agree that the people pushing sexual education in the public school system think little of abstinence as an option. So they preach the use of a condom, knowing that a condom won’t actually be used in practice. This is not education. It is deception.
You have data on teen pregnancy rates for states with different legislation, some emphasising abstinence only, others have sex education where condoms and the pill are discussed. The states opting for abstinence only seem to have higher teen pregnancy rates.
For all US states teenage pregnancy rates are much higher than in Europe.
I have seen a study in the past, but can’t find it right now. IIRC teens with abstinence only would become sexually active about a year or so later, but as they have had no education on condoms and contraceptives, they then tend to get pregnant a lot quicker.
So it depends on what you want to achieve. If you want to hold up moral inhibitions against sex out of marriage, abstinence only is obviously the way to go. If you want to reduce teenage pregnancies, you’ll have better results with comprehensive sex education. Abortions rates do not seem to be influenced by this choice.
The statistics are a distraction. The baby is not the problem. The problem is children and young adults having sex out of wedlock. The baby is the result, and an abortion does not fix that “problem”. Contraceptives don’t fix the “problem”.
The solution is cultural. Currently, we have politicians responsible for providing moral education in government-run schools. Why would we expect that to work?
Thanks to our education system we now have an advertising culture that glorifies sex and treats seducing an attractive young woman as “scoring”, a statistic. As the result of our continuing cultural decline, we now have people pushing the idea that children need to be taught how to have sex responsibly. Children? Responsible? About sex? What kind of adult thinks that way? A decadent one.
Not too long ago 16 year olds married and had children, but in those days people also died young. So, people became serious and mature at a younger age. Now? Now we don’t even learn how to be serious about sex, but sex is how we produce a human being, life made in the image of God.
When we choose someone with which to have sex, we are choosing to bind our self to that person. Two become one to produce and protect their family. That is not a recreational activity, but too many people refuse to understand that. Without that truth, we cannot deal with the issue. In any event, government has not got a solution to this “problem”. Government has just made it worse.
