If you attend Texas’ Crane High School, there’s about a one in fifteen chance that you have chlamydia right now. Fun, unrelated fact: you’ve also never been enrolled in a comprehensive sex-ed course. Weird!
The parents of the students who should have known better than to do the sex stuff that no one ever explained to them received a letter alerting them to the school’s outbreak, which is currently affecting about seven percent of the school. A school which, according to its current student handbook, “does not offer a curriculum in human sexuality.”
And while the school does offer three days of sex ed in the beginning of the school year, “Texas state law requires any sex ed course to devote more attention to abstinence than any other behavior,” according to Raw Story. Which includes being told that abstinence is the best way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, like—oh, chlamydia, for instance.
Funny how these things work out.
