By now, you’ve probably noticed that abstinence-only education programs are not only missing from the curriculum in many public schools, they’re also often completely inaccessible to women.
Many of the same concerns that have made public schools such a hotbed for sexually transmitted diseases, STDs, and pregnancy have been brought to bear on education programs that aim to educate students about abstinence.
This includes issues of access to resources, access to information, and the use of safe sex in the classroom.
In some cases, abstinence-oriented education is simply not an option for women, with many reporting difficulty accessing resources, such as peer counseling and mental health counseling.
In response to these concerns, the National Association of Public School Principals has launched a national campaign to educate teachers on how to support students and students in general by creating a curriculum that focuses on education, prevention, and wellness.
The curriculum, dubbed “Boys’ Guide to Pregnancy and Sexual Health,” is available on the NAPPS website for teachers to share with their students.
While the curriculum includes a wide range of resources that can help educate students and help them identify behaviors that are harmful to their health, the focus is predominantly on abstinence and how to prevent pregnancy.
The goal of the curriculum is to provide parents with information that helps them make informed choices regarding their children’s sexual health, and to help educators develop effective and practical strategies for supporting students and their families.
As part of the campaign, the NAPDPS is also partnering with other public schools in the U.S. and Canada to provide an online resource for parents.
“The curriculum is not a substitute for a full-time, state-of-the-art, state licensed health professional.
In fact, it is intended to be the complement to that professional, which may require additional time and resources,” says Nadine Karpinski, president of the NAPS, in a press release.
While many of the resources included in the curriculum may seem like they could be found in any school resource library, the “BDSM-Ready” section of the “Guide to Pregnant” website provides some interesting insight into the type of information teachers should include in their curricula.
The article is titled, “How to Teach Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Pregnancy in a Healthy, Safe, and Effective Way.”
According to the article, the best way to “treat and prevent sexually transmitted disease and pregnancy is to have an open and honest discussion with your student about sex, the benefits and harms of sex, and how they can help protect themselves from STDs and pregnancy.”
In the section titled “Sexually Transmittable Diseases and Abortion,” the NOPPS provides an overview of sexual health and the role of STDs in the development of STIs and pregnancy.
“To teach sex in an accurate and respectful way, we also need to be sure we are teaching people how to protect themselves, their partners, and their bodies,” Karpinkins stated.
“This is why we are working with parents to ensure that sex is part of their health and sexuality education.
This is especially important when it comes to STDs.”
The article also outlines the role that abstinence education plays in preventing STDs.
“Many of the sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that occur during pregnancy, as well as STDs that are common among teenagers, are preventable and reversible with the right information and a willingness to learn.
But as the number of teenagers ages 13 to 19 is on the rise, it can be difficult for some of them to understand what they are actually doing and how it affects their health,” the article continues.
“We are working to make it easier for these young people to understand that their sexuality is something that they should be learning about and making it more accessible to them.”
This is important for both students and educators because, in addition to the many resources that teachers can offer students, they also need resources to provide information to students on their own sexuality.
This information is important not only because it helps students understand their own bodies and the risk that their partners pose, but also because it gives them a chance to learn about sexual health risks and the benefits of STI prevention.
While some of the content of the Guide to Parenthood and Pregarenthood is not specific to the NMPPS curriculum, the article does include a section on “Pregnancy and STDs Prevention.”
The section reads, “In order to prevent STDs such as syphilis and gonorrhea, it’s important to be aware of your body and to understand your body’s natural defenses.”
As a result of this information, it may be helpful to talk about the physical symptoms of STPs such as soreness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, or loss of appetite.
“When we talk about sexual risk behaviors, the idea is that people need to know that it’s possible to have a healthy pregnancy,” Karsinski continued.
“It’s not about saying that there are no risks for pregnancy. It’s
