Sex Education Policy at Mattituck High School

Is it possibly true that the sex education policy at MHS is abstinence only?  When I found this out I was so outraged and embarrassed. The backwards nature of such a policy, in such a great town, at such a great school is unthinkable. I was wondering what group of closed minded people could possibly put this in place? Study after study proves that that kind of policy is ridiculous! Any comments? How can we all change this for a stronger, educated , and empowered youth.

Our children, kindergarten through high school deserve to have the facts about their bodies and be equipped with all the information on sexuality and birth control so that they can take responsibility. Their plans for their future should not derailed due to a limited sex education program that fails their needs. Who is creating the sex education curriculum for the school system? This is one of the most complicated and subtle of teaching assignments, not to be left to a school nurse or biology teacher if they have not had experience and advance education in the subject.

I don't know who is deciding on the sex education curriculum but I would definitely like to rally our community to do something about this. Lack of information is the worst possible route to take on these issues
