Learning by doing

Today's Post Metro section has a lengthy article on the latest trend in teen sex: doing it in school. Like on the wrestling mats, for example. Some educators sound alarmed, but this was entirely predictable.

And you absolutely know that, first thing Monday morning, the Cucumber People in Montgomery County will be calling a press conference demanding that they be allowed to show their condom-on-the-cucumber sex-ed instructional video. After all, sex in school is caused by parents who demand abstinence education.

(For the record, I personally don't think abstinence education alone is enough, but it should be a serious part of the sex-ed curriculum and not just some throat-clearing on the way to the real stuff. Kids know when adults are shoveling it.)
