This week we have a Non-Profit come into the high school and discuss STDs, and birth control, etc. On a Global Awareness level, it is useful to prevent many health problems. The World Health Organization, WHO, says this is what countries need--more education to bring down AIDs and other STDs from being transmitted. In this country, we are obviously spoiled; and our kids should be discussing this with their parents. There are so many students who opt-out, based on religious reasons, etc. I can't help but think why this is done in mixed company. (and I've heard all the arguments why/why not.) I think it's best to hear from the kids and their parents. Describe what you think of this service, and the time it takes from our World Studies Classes.
