Most Californians
support comprehensive sex education

Nearly four out of five California adults believe comprehensive sex education that includes instruction on condom use should be taught in the state's public schools, according to a survey of more than 2,500 state residents by the Public Policy Institute of California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The survey found that 78% of those polled support instruction on condom use, contraception, and abstinence for the state's middle and high school students. About 36% of those polled think the state's schools already do an adequate job in providing sex education, and another 33% said schools are doing "just enough." The state requires public school students to take sex education courses beginning in the seventh grade and to receive information on HIV and AIDS at least once during middle school and once during high school.
