ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the difficulty faced by school boards in confronting abstinence-only against comprehensive sex education in the U.S. Board member Laura Benson proposed a policy that required teachers in the sex education program to be school employees or county health department staff. A citizens committee recommended changing the district's sex education program to emphasize abstinence. As the abstinence-only movement grows, more districts are bound to face debates over sex education. INSET: NEW DATA ON TEEN SEX FUELS THE DEBATE.
