CDC says birth control education only reaching 2/3 of students

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The Centers for Disease control surveyed teens and found that just two-thirds have been taught about proper birth control methods.

The study found 97 percent had received sex education by the time they turned 18, but only 62 percent of boys and 70 percent of girls had lessons on how to use a condom or other birth control.

The lessons were more likely to teach sexually transmitted diseases or how to say no than birth control.
