What is taught in Lubbock schools


Abstinence is the key point in all sex
education in Lubbock.
Students may be told about protective
measures, but are not told how to use them
or what they do.
How do the student/parents feel



“The current policies are
obviously ineffective.” Corey
Nicholes, Mayor of the Lubbock
Youth Commission, age 17.
“…when you look at the
numbers, you see the
abstinence curriculum fails.”
“I got my sex ed from 3 sources
– my peers, the media, and my
own research,” Benson, 19.
“I knew this many people where
having sex, but I didn’t know so
many were getting sick and
pregnant,” Buchanan, 17.
“Lubbock is in need of sex
education.”

“I don’t think teaching anything
other then abstinence is right,”
Cindy Wright, mother of two.
“Sex outside marriage is Russian
roulette,” Ainsworth, youth Pastor
in Lubbock.
“Abstinence is the 100 percent
effective way of not getting an
STD or pregnant,” said Vilka
Scott, a disease intervention
special at the Lubbock Health
Department. “I strongly encourage
abstinence.”
How does Lubbock compare
with the rest of the nation in
pregnancies?

Lubbock leads Texas
and the majority of the
US in teen
pregnancies
In 4 years it dropped
by rate of .6.


In cases of chlamydia and
gonorrhea rates have
fallen nationally
Lubbock county has
double the rates of the US.
The highest rates being in
the age range of 15 to 20
years old.
So what needs to
happen to change
this?
We propose a push
for more in depth
sex education
The students obviously feel a lack of
knowledge. Also the numbers show a
need for change as well.
