Abstinence ed 'outperforms' comprehensive sex ed

Pete Chagnon - OneNewsNow -

According to a research analyst, comprehensive sex education does not outperform abstinence education.

Irene Ericksen of the Institute for Research and Evaluation says that media reports continually claim that abstinence education is a failure and that comprehensive sex ed is the only way to reduce teen pregnancies and promote safe-sex practices. She adds that they continually site a federal study that is riddled with myths and did not find abstinence education effective.
