STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Homestead, FL

The Miami Dade County Public Schools District is one of the nations largest, with a $4 billion budget. The district works with the schools to provide exemplary sexual health education and to create effective policies related to sexual health education and HIV/STD prevention. It provides training and professional development opportunities for school administrators, educators, school nurses, psychologists, and social workers. While Florida law requires abstinence be taught as one component of health education courses, it does not preclude a comprehensive sexual health curricula from being implemented.

Most schools do use an abstinence-based model in these programs, but they realize that most young adults pride themselves on knowing everything there is to be taught in school, but when asked to produce some important facts about STDs they give a blank stare like they forgot to turn in their homework in English class. Florida schools do a fine job of teaching which college to choose and which job to prepare for, but they fall short in their role of preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
