Some people believe that sex education and abstinence-only education will not prevent teen pregnancies, but it can in fact influence them to either refrain from sex before marriage or avoid having unprotected sex. According to a study lead by author Pamela Kohler, “About 25% of teens received abstinence-only education and about two-thirds received comprehensive sex education” (Kohler). Researchers found that teens who received sex education were 60% less likely to get pregnant or to get someone pregnant than those who did not get sex education (HealthDay News). School boards schools consider utilizing sex education and abstinence-only education in schools. It could stop teens from dropping out of school and being in welfare.
