|Abby Rosenstein Interview at Teach.Com|
Abby Rosenstein, Advocates' Program Manager of School Health Equity, is interviewed on teach.com this week about abstinence education vs. comprehensive sexual health education.
"Exemplary sex education provides honest, accurate sexual health information and builds skills among young people to make healthy, informed decisions. It provides young people with information about their bodies and their health, and skills to think critically, negotiate confidently and build healthy and mutually respectful relationships throughout their lives. It is inclusive of all young people and their families; it does not stigmatize GLBTQ people, teen parents, single parents or sexually active youth. Great sex education requires well-trained educators who are knowledgeable, comfortable and interested in teaching about sexuality to young people."
