  4. 4. Our problem The problem that our group have identified is the fact that a lack of adequate sex education is harmful to students. There is also the problem of students with different sexualities who need to be educated about what to do and how to protect themselves. Some of the public say that abstinence only education is the answer to stop teens from having sex along with teen pregnancy. There are some teens who won't chose abstinence, so abstinence-only are not the answer. We believe that if we point this out we could decrease the teen pregnancy, reduce the amount of STD, and help keep students safe and prepared for the future. • STD- Sexually transmitted diseases are infectious disease that can be spread from person to person through contact. • Al DS- Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, a disease that handicaps the body's ability to fight viruses. • HIV-Human immunodeficiency virus, a disease that handicaps that body's ability to fight viruses. • HPI- Human papillomavirus infection, an infection that causes warts in various parts of the body. • Gonorrhea- A sexually transmitted bacteria that, if untreated, may cause infertility, inability to become pregnant. These are the diseases that could be more prevented if the sexual education was taught to get the lesson to the student's minds, something more engaging and the consequences that happens when you get pregnant at a young age. The reason why we think the government should get involved is because the level of government that needs to be involved is the federal government. The government should be involved because the material that health class covers are world wide problems. Health class examines drugs, teen pregnancy, sexually diseases, unprotected inercourse, and the human body and how to protect it. Recent estimates from the lab of Center
  5. 5. for Diseases and Infections, show that are 19.7 million new STD cases ,( every year in the United States. Teens need a new, reformed health class. Each year one in four young people becomes infected with an STD or STI before or by the age of 25.
  6. 6. What is Sex Education, really? To many people sex ed is very important in local or public schools. This helps prepare children for any future preferences. Sexual education helps warn kids about things that might occur when getting physical with another partner. Things that might occur without sex ed would be diseases, some sort of rash, teen pregnancy, etc. When coming to talk about sex (or as most people like to call it the birds and the bees) most parents are very uncomfortable to talk to their child about sex and most children are uncomfortable about talking to their parents about sex. Some parents who do talk to their children about sex don't explain it to the understanding of the child. When most kids wants to learn more about something they take a risk in doing it for themselves, giving them a more visual learning experiences. When it comes to sex ed or in this case health class, most schools' sex ed class are co-ed instead of separated. lt is best to have separate sex ed classes separating the genders instead of having the classes co-ed for many reasons.One of the big reasons why most students really don't take sex ed really seriously. When the class is co-ed, the student from another gender won't really be comfortable with the other gender hearing what is actually happening to their bodies. The other gender might be embarrassed and nervous and not paying attent to what is really going on. With this when this student is getting ready to get physical with his or her partner this particular student wouldn't know what to do when the time has come. Most students have their first time in a particularly young age. ln the process more and more females are getting pregnant at a young age, which sometimes means that the male character of the solution will have to drop out of school and get a job to pay off child support. Most children are typically born on purpose or by accident. Two of the reasons is because the two opposite genders didn't use a contraceptive or their contraceptive broke by accident. Since we are talking about student teenagers, then the pregnancy mostly will form by accident. Some teens would be worried about their contraceptive breaking on their first time. DID YOU KNOW? Only 22 states in the United States mandate kids taking sexual education classes and only 13 states require that the instructions be medically accurate. Most schools teach different reforms of sex ed which means that most schools are more experimental with sex ed then other schools. For example, what if a girl from the Winton Woods district and a boy from the the Princeton district were going to get physical with each other. Since the boy goes to princeton he knows more about his body and what's going to happen to him before and after the results of him getting physical. The girl from Winton Woods knows a little less more then the boy so she really doesn't know more of what's going to happen to her body before and after gets physical I '
  7. 7. Teen Pregnancy In 2013, a total of 273,105 babies were birth rate born women aged 15-19years, for a live birth rate of 26.5 per 1000 women in this age group. This is a record low for U.S. teens in this age group and a drop of 10%from 2012. Birth rates fell 13% for women aged 15-17years, and 8% for women aged 18-19years. Still, the U.S. teens pregnancy rate is substantially higher than in other western industrial nations. Although only 13% of U.S. teens had sex by age 15, most initiate sex in their late teen years. Bytheir 19th birthday, seven in ten teen men and teen women have had intercourse. Between 1988 and 2006-2010, the proportion of never-married teens aged 15-17 who have engaged in intercourse declined from 37%to 27% among females and from 505 to 28% among males. During the same, teenagers aged 18-19, that proportion declined from 73%to 63% among females, and 77%to 64% among males. The pregnancy rate among young females has declined from 117 pregnancies per 1,000 women aged 15-19in 1990 to 68 pregnancies per 1,000 in 2008. Of approximately 750,000 teen pregnancies that occur each year, 87% are unintended, fifty-nine percent end in birth and more than one-quarter endin abortion. Researchers studied the National Survey of Family Growth to determine the impact of sexuality education on youth sexual risk-taking for the young people ages 15-19,and found that teens who received abstinence only education. Researcher Douglas Kirby for the National Campaign to End Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy examined studies of prevention programs which had a appropriate analysis. Two-thirds of the 48 comprehensive sex ed programs studied had positive effects. Abstinence-Only Program Abstinence-only sexual education is a form of sexual education that teaches not having intercourse outside of marriage. Claim- Research shows that abstinence-only education delays sexual initiation and reduces teen pregnancy Fact-A long awaited, federally evaluation of four carefully selected abstinence-only education programs, published in April 2007, showed that youth enrolled in the programs were no more likely than those not inthe programs were delay sexual initiation, to have fewer sexual partners, or to abstain entirely from sex numerous state evaluations of federally funded programs have yielded similar conclusions. A 2004 review by Advocates for youth of state-based evaluations found that abstinence-only programs showed little evidence of sustained (long term) impact attitudes and intentions. Worse, they showed some negative impacts on youth's willingness to use contraception, including contraceptive to prevent negative sexual health outcomes related to sexual intercourse. Clalrrî=Abstínence-only programs are responsible for the recent dramatic decline in teen pregnancy Fact- A new study showed that improved contraceptive use is responsible for 86 percent or the decline in the US adolescent pregnancy rate between 1995-2002. Dramatic improvements
  8. 8. in contraceptive use including increases in the use of single methods, increases in the use of multiple methods and declines in the non-use are responsible for improved adolescent pregnancy rates. Only 14 percent of the change among 15-19 year olds was attribute to a decrease in the percentage of sexually active young women. Even though the teen birth rate in 2005 fell to 40-4 births per 1000 women ages 15-19, the lowest rate in 65 years, the United States continues to have the highest teen rate of any of the world's developed nations. Almost 750,000 teenage women become pregnant in the United States each year. Nearly three in ten US teenage women experience pregnancy. The US teen birth rate is one and a halftimes higher than that United kingdoms and more than twice as high that in Canada. Claim- Abstinence-only programs provide accurate, unbiased information about reproductive health. Fact- Many of the curricula commonly used in abstinence-only programs <listrot information about the effectiveness of contraceptives misrepresent the risks of abortion, blur religion and science, treat gender stereotypes as scientific fact, and contain basic scientific errors, according to a 2004 report by Government Reform Committee staff. The report reviewed the 13 most commonly used curricula were accurate but that 11 others used by 69 organizations in 25 states, contained unproven assertions, subjective conclusions, or outright falsehoods regarding reproductive health, gender traits, and when lifebegins among the distortions cited by woman's staff a 43 day-old fetus is a thinking person. • In 2013, 273,105 babies were born to women ages 15-19 • In 2013, there were 26.5 for every 1,000 girls ages 15-19 • 89% teenages parents are unmarried • 86,ooo teens aged 15-17 gave birth in 2012 • Nearly 1,700 teenaged 15-17givebirth every week Diseases • Hiv can be spread via sweat and tears • More than half of all people will have an STD or STI at some point in their lifetime • Recent estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Infections show that there are 19.7 million new STis every year in the US •• Each year, one in four teens contracts an STD or STI by the age of 25 • About half of all new STD or STI cases in 2000 occurred among youth ages 15-24. The total estimated costs of these nine million new cases of these STDs/STI was 6.5 billion • Each year, there are almost 3 million cases of Chlamydia • Over 14 million people acquire HPV each year, and by the age of 50, at least 80percent of women will have acquired HPV infection

Sexuallytransmitted diseases are infectious diseases that spread from person to person through contact. STDshave become common among teens. STDs,if untreated, can cause permanent damage such as infertility, unable to have a baby, and even death (in case of HIVsand AIDs).Aperson can get some STDs,like herpes and genital warts, through skin to skin contact with an infected area or sore. The younger the person starts having intercourse, the greater his or her chances of becoming infected with an STD.People who have sexual contact-notjust intercourse, but any form of intimate activity-with many different partners are more at risk than those who stay with the same partner. Unprotected intercourse can also lead to an STD.Gonorrhea may also be spread by contact with infected bodily fluids, so that a matter could pass on the infection to her newborn during childbirth. The infection is easily spread and occurs most often in people who have many sex partners. Each year, according to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention, there are as many as, 700,000 new cases a year.

  19. 19. The policy that address the problem. The policy that we chose to address our problem was Alternative policy number 3. We chose this policy because we thought this policy addresses the problem better than the other two policies, this policy benefits the students more. If the students are given an hour each school day for an entire year then they will benefit greater because they are spending more time on each unit of the health class. This will help the student be more safe with their bodies. When given extra time to learn and understand more about sex education the students won't have to feel forced learning about sex education. When having a semester long health class each part of the section would be broken into pieces and be explained a little more, so students would have more of an understanding idea about what is going on with their body. All of the other alternative policies were really good, but it seems they might add an extra bell of class. This also means we have to hire more staff which is great for the student but not so great for the teachers. This would mean that some of the teacher's salary would be cut into half, which is making less money and more teachers would want to quit. So these are some of the reasons why we picked alternative police number 3. The branch of government that we thought should handle this was the state. This shows how without these materials that health talks about sex education, more people would take sex education a little more seriously. This policy will best improve the students understanding of sexual education because they have an hour of every school week, for an entire school year, and that will give them more time to learn about what they need to stay safe and be prepared. Telling our situation with health class to the state we are showing that this isn't just for the students in our local school or community but for every school in the state who feels the same connection about this situation as we do.
  20. 20. Advantages Some of our advantages for alternative policy number 3 is that you can learn more things about your body that you don't understand. As we say again most parents are very uncomfortable to talk to their child about sex and most children are uncomfortable about talking to their parents about sex education. Some parents who do talk to their children about sex don't explain it to the understanding of the child. More than 75%of students learning something are visual learners, so in order to learn and understand something they have to see itfor there own eyes. A reformed health class can talk about how to protect your body from diseases or even getting sick. When learning things about your body parts and what might harm them people in general would want to protect themselves. The most common problem with bad lack of sex education is teen pregnancy. In all of the state together there are 31% of mistimed pregnancy, 20% unwanted pregnancy and 49% intended pregnancy. vVhenteens are young and having kids of their own they get scared and don't know what to do. 44% of teen abortion is cause by people in the teens life (such asfamily members), life threatening diseases and ect. Issues and 50% of teen abortion is cause by the teens making a choose to give up their baby. As you look at the chart below you can see the percentage of of teen pregnancy abortions cause by the teens choice or life styles. .¡
  21. 21. Our last advantages for alternative policy number 3 is having a long health class lets students have more time to ask questions and have a better understanding. When students understand more about a subject, they have better examples to bepreparedfor thefuture. This is because all of the questions that a student might have would all be answered so that student may make a better choice in the nearfuture. This will then lower teen pregnancy and other disease rates.
  22. 22. Disadvantages One of our disadvantages for alternative policy number 3 isfinding a way tofit a health class in the school schedule. Trying tofit a health class in a school schedule means that some of the class schedule might be shortened. When some these classes are shortened students mig ht have trouble in other subjects and with no understanding of what they are learning. A lot of important units would be shortened and students would be taking random tests that most of the students have no clue about what to do. This means a lot ofparents will complain and remove their child from school. Our second disadvantage for alternative policy number 3 is hiring more teachers on a low budget. What teacher would want to workfor less than what they already get paid? This would cause almost half of the teacher to quit and get new jobs somewhere else. This means we would have evenfewer teachers than we started with. Our last disadvantage for alternative policy number 3 is students might have to extend school a little longer-leaving students and teachers waking up earlier than they already have to. A lot of students and teachers have afterschool activities which are very important to them. Also having another period of class means more students will get tired easily as well asfor the teachers. Research has shown that when students are too tired or mentally exhausted to concentrate) the last hour of the day becomes useless. Some students) even as old as eighth-graders) suffer from post-launch attention deficit syndrome and aren't mentally prepared to take on an additional hour of class work, reports eighth-grade teacher Ron Whitehome on Philadelphia's education website The Notebook.org. Young students mightfeelfatigue orfall asleep during class time if they are too tired to concentrate or perform.
  23. 23. with her partner. This is really because of the school district thinking what they think is best for the students and trying make them clueless then there already are. What's the point in calling schools public when they won't open their eyes to public matters like sex education and saying that it's inappropriate for students to learn about these things. Without sex education kids would be learn about the right and the wrongs of sex education on television, not knowing if the outcomes are positive or negative.
