    Pagan- there are a couple more things too, but education is a great start for sure.

    Here we go again, some Utah legislators doing their best to prevent schools from educating our kids. The only chance some of our kids have to become decent people is in our schools.

    What cuts down on teen pregnancy?

    What is the truth?- Well, not your name I guess, because according to an article in the SLTrib from last summer, 85.5% of Utahns have internet. Second only to New Hampshire. An overwhelming majority could benefit by using this, don't let 14.5% hold you down.

    If parents don't teach them,
    and the Schools won't teach them,
    that leaves just porn sights on the internet to teach them.

    And then we ask ourselves why Utah is #1 in on-line porn....

    Tip of the hat to these students who spoke out on this issue. Whether or not you agree with their opinion, at least they came out and spoke thoughtfully and rationally on the subject. That's better than what you get from 99% of the political discussion you hear from so-called "adults" in this country.

    Ok... online huh? Where does that leave the 40% (just in Salt Lake County NOT taking into consideration the rural rural community) who don't have internet? Don't imagine the legislators want them to go to the library to go on the website.

    What a waste of education money.

    I'm ok with sexual education being taught openly in schools, so long as the schools aren't giving several different "alternative lifestyles" as choices they can make and be perfectly accepted.
