There is currently no requirement that New York schools teach sex education – and many don’t. Of the public schools across New York that do provide sex education, the curriculum is often inaccurate, incomplete, and stigmatizing.
Gaps in sex education leave New York’s students ill equipped to keep themselves safe and healthy. And a lack of education allows stereotypes about gender and LGBTQ people, misinformation, and toxic relationships to spread.
TAKE ACTION: Tell state lawmakers we need comprehensive, age-appropriate sex education in all public schools across the state.
