Overhauling Sex Ed: The New Curriculum for NYC Schools

Presented by the Center for NYC Affairs and the Wolfson Center for National Affairs.

New York City has begun to revamp sex education in the public schools, creating a new health curriculum as well as an HIV/AIDS education program.  Are the city schools doing all they can to prepare young New Yorkers for safe sexual lives?  What do parents, students and teachers think of the changes?  How is our city’s experience in keeping with national trends while bucking others?
