Hats off to Katie Granju taking issue with the abstinence-only sex ed class offered at her daughter's middle school. Well done.

Which brings me to a question: Why on earth are schools involved in sex ed at all?

Please. Just let the parents handle it.

I'm so glad my school was involved!!! The program through the guidence office when I was in 7th or 8th grade was very informative and science based (no religious overtones at all.) I never would have learned all of that from my parents who were too uncomfortable to mention anything.

You're absolutely right; sometimes a school can be very helpful. But that requires that the school provide students with useful sex ed information.

In my book, abstinence-only education isn't useful information; it's an opinion.
