What is comprehensive sex education? The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) gives a very thorough explanation here. In a nutshell, comprehensive sex education teaches students about reproductive development in ways that are medically accurate, evidence-based, and age-appropriate. In addition to addressing prevention of pregnancy and STI’s, it also addresses forms of sexual expression, healthy sexual and nonsexual relationships, gender identity and sexual orientation and questioning, communication, recognizing and preventing sexual violence, consent, and decision making.
