TULSA (KFAQ) - Oklahoma ranks 4th in the nation for teen pregnancy. Tulsa Public School administrators believe that a sex education and health curriculum could help bring the number of teen pregnancy down.
The program, approved by board members Tuesday night, would go into four schools including Clinton Middle School, Webster High, Memorial Junior and Senior High. Students would learn about abstinence, sexually transmitted diseases and about how to protect themselves.
The program, called "Making Proud Choices: A Safer Sex Approach to HIV/STDs and Teen Pregnancy Prevention," will require parental approval before a child is allowed to take part.
