Sex Education in Texas Public Schools: Progress in the Lone Star State

by TFN Insider

Data collected by the Texas Education Agency — and analyzed by the TFN Education Fund — demonstrates that a quiet revolution is underway in Texas school districts. While abstinence-only instruction remains the predominant approach to sex education in the state, the percentage of school districts moving beyond a strict abstinence-only message has surged in recent years. Roughly 25 percent of districts now report taking an abstinence-plus approach to sex education. That compares to just 3.6 percent of districts doing so three short years ago – a 600 percent increase.
