A Picture Of Sex Education In The United States

Teens are having sex. Among high school students surveyed in 2015 by the CDC, 41 percent had engaged in sexual intercourse. Thirty percent of all surveyed students had sex in the last 3 months, and out of those, 43 percent did not use a condom and 14 percent did not use any method to prevent pregnancy whatsoever. Though teen pregnancy rates are the lowest they’ve been in years, the United States still has the highest teen birth rate of any developed nation.
