3 doctors agree

In brief: It can but not alway

Voters tend to have very strong personal feelings about where sex education occurs, at home and controlled by the parents vs at school where the topics are managed by a school board and individual teachers.
Some people think sex education means teaching abstinence, for others it means teaching birth control and std prevention. All you can do is advocate your position and vote.

In brief: Yes

Comprehensive sex education that is based on level of understanding and reality can/does reduce risk off pregnancy and STD's.
The abstinence based approach has not had a similar effect.Unfortunately the issue brings out more feeling and opinion than support.
