British Schools, Mandatory to teach Sex Ed
It is a step in the right direction when schools are forcing sexual education upon their students, especially at an earlier age. My big thing about education is that you should be exposed to everything in life--maybe not at just any random age (exposing children to pornography, for example, is stupid--however i think everyone should see what it looks like at some point so they can decide if it's horrifying or not and not just assume it is because of beliefs), and it's very good that children are going to be required to learn about it.
The only downside to this statute in England is that it allows private schools to teach whatever they like concerning sex education, even saying that homosexuality is wrong and contraceptives are evil. Although i don't like it, you can't argue with private schools. Sad day.
