Texas has one of the nation’s highest teen birthrates, yet a Texas Freedom Network Education Fund report last year found that 9 in 10 of the state’s school districts keep young people ignorant by teaching failed abstinence-only programs or nothing at all when it comes to sex education. Now you can participate in a special TFN webinar to learn how to advocate effectively for responsible sex education policies in your local community.
The training webinar is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Thursday, September 16. This informative session will explore the problem in Texas and explain how to join a local School Health Advisory Council, which advises school districts on health education policies, including sex ed. Participants will also learn what public policies can help ensure that Texas teens get the critical information they need about responsible pregnancy and disease prevention to protect their health and their future.
Participants will be able to see and hear the training session and ask questions from their own computers at home or work. Click here to register for this important training opportunity and help improve sex education policies in Texas public schools.
