American College of Pediatricians Support SRA Education
After comparing SRA and SRR education, the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) found that SRA education "truly is in the best interest of children, families, communities, and society as a whole." In this position statement, they conclude, "Our experience with young people, the compelling evidence for harm resulting from adolescent sexual activity, the consistent failure of CSE programs in U.S. schools, the developmental level of the adolescent brain, the promising evidence for SRA education, and the wishes of parents, have led us to conclude that school-based SRA education is superior to CSE. ACPeds therefore recommends the adoption of SRA education by all school systems, with classes beginning in middle school and continuing through high school."
SRA: Sexual Risk Avoidance
SRR: Sexual Risk Reduction (used interchangeably with CSE)
CSE: Comprehensive Sex Ed.
