In brief: Sex education

Leaves out romance.
Sex education teaches male and female anatomy, physiology of sex organs, pregnancy & childnirth, & need for self examination to diagnose breast and testicular cancers. Contraception is taught to avaoid pregnancy and stds. Kids tell & teach each other about sex. But, school and other kids don't teach or discuss romance.Discussions regarding romance are for the home & for parents.
