"One of the main arguments against comprehensive sexual and reproductive education in schools is that this material is best left for the home. Parents, not educators, should be the ones to teach their children about sex. In my experience, however, I have observed that many parents themselves have not received enough sex education to teach their children adequately. That's why our school teachers and counselors must be able to provide full and accurate information about anatomy, sexuality, relationships, communication, and boundaries-to start or expand on the conversations about sex that students may or may not be able to have at home." -CG, LSEN supporter
