STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Asheville, NC

Public school districts are still required to include medically accurate and scientifically proven information in their sex education classes the qualifications needed to make the decision have been dramatically relaxed. It is now up to each school district to decide who is qualified to decide which information is included in their sex education programs, and this has some health officials worried.

Pro-family groups are often the ones that decide on the curriculum, and in many cases this means that the information will be abstinence based. Even though it has been scientifically proven that teens and adults can still contract a STD even if they are not sexually active, this information is being taught in many of the sex education programs.
