STD Testing and Sexual Education in Redford, MI

The state of Michigan State Board of Education has a policy to promote health and prevent pregnancy and diseases such as STDs. This board recognizes that STDs such as HIV and early pregnancy are threats to the current and future health and academic success of Michigan students. The board supports the idea that a well planned and implemented comprehensive school health education has been shown to positively influence students’ health-related knowledge, skills, and behaviors.

It also contributes to academic success. Schools have a duty with families and communities to implement an effective sex education program. The program can help students make responsible decisions during their school years and into their adult lives. The State Board of Education recommends that local school boards support their school administrators plus faculty to select, adopt, and implement comprehensive sexuality education.

To safeguard their health and the health of others, all students should receive this instruction unless a parent or legal guardian requested that their child be excused. Local board policies that support effective sexuality programs should consider these factors.

  1.     Parents and guardians are the primary sex educators for children.
  2.     Education programs will be more effective when they support what parents and guardians want for their children.
  3.     Local school districts should conduct surveys to assess attitudes.
  4.     Surveys should help determine what to teach and when.
  5.     Decisions regarding the specific content of sexuality education programs belong at the local school district level.
