U.S. Teenage Pregnancy Rate Raises Concerns

Indeed, from the CDC’s research it appears that misperception, not simply a lack of resources, is one of the key components in this increasing rate of U.S. teenage pregnancies. The study appears to claim that, ultimately, more adequate education and prevention is imperative to stagnating and reversing this trend.
“More adequate education and prevention is imperative.” What????
Politics took away funding for abstinence-only education because it claimed it didn’t stop teens from having unprotected sex. Now they say “more adequate education and prevention”? I thought the comprehensive safe sex education they were presenting in schools and claim students need most were going to lower teen pregnancy rate.
Did I think wrong? What do you think is happening with the narrative on sexual education for our children and teens?
