HBO’s Last Week Tonight Takes On Sex Education In Our Schools

I’ll preface this with the obvious fact that I don’t have kids.

That being said, I’m always amazed at the outrage some parents’ have about their child learning basic sex education in school. You constantly hear “that belongs in the home!”

Except – as John Oliver points out in this segment, No parent wants to talk to their kids about sex, and no kid wants to talk about sex with their parents.”

From The Week:

There are no standards for what to teach kids about sex, federally or sometimes even locally. Only 22 states require sex ed, Oliver noted, and only 13 require that the information be medically accurate. Viewers of this clip will get to see a lot of really bad sex-ed videos, and learn some discouraging statistics.
