Why are a lot of schools in the U.S. teaching abstinence only courses instead of ones that actually tell you about sex and STD's? My teacher for health at my high school said that the two main points of sex ed. was to help us to make the right choices and to know the consequences. Our Course isn't abstinence only, but how come a lot of schools are?
