STD Testing and Sexual Education in Lincoln Park, MI

According to the policies of the state of Michigan and its Department of Education, sex instruction should emphasize that students have the power to control personal behavior and should base their actions on accurate information, values, reasoning, a sense of responsibility, and respect for self and others.

Education programs should address the needs of all students. This is the view expressed by the Department of Education for the state of Michigan.

This means it should include those who abstain from sexual activity. It should also include those who engaged in sexual activity but are now abstaining. It should also include those who will decide to engage in sexual activity in the future.

The content of sex education must be consistent with the Michigan Department of Education and their Health Education Content Standards. This information must be medically accurate. It must also include current information. Abstinence from risky sexual behavior must be stressed as the only certain way to avoid HIV, other STIs, and pregnancy.

Again, this is the requirement of the Department of Education of the state of Michigan. Let’s remember that 43 percent of Michigan high school students reported they had sexual intercourse. Sex education instruction should address methods to reduce risks for HIV, other STDs, and unintended pregnancy.

Let’s also remember that according to the Michigan Department of Education our society requires an educational system that supports programs addressing varied needs. These are needs of a diverse student population. The approach and teaching should be nondiscriminatory.
