Miseducating Our Children

I guess it could be worse.
ATLANTA - Almost all U.S. teens have had formal sex education, but only about two-thirds have been taught about birth control methods, according to a new government report released Wednesday.

Many teens apparently are not absorbing those lessons , other recent data shows that after years of steady decline, the teen birth rate rose from 2005 to 2007. It dipped again in 2008, to about 10 percent of all births.

I don't remember whatever formal sex education I had very well, but my hazy memory is that what was flawed about it was that it never quite explained that people do this sex thing because they're horny and it feels good.
