I dislike the fact that my school presented sex education as "Obviously don't let anyone pressure you into sex, and wait til you're ready, but since you WILL be doing it sooner rather than later, here's all the details." Abstinence was never presented as a valid option and I wish it had been. Nor was there much time spent on "here are the negatives to becoming sexually active so young."
When even the teachers/curriculum is assuming you are going to be having sex by 15-17, then it's no wonder young men and women think it's normal - these attitudes are being reinforced by schools!
Anyway, obviously I think sex education (including contraception) is still important, but I would welcome more of a move towards educating ABOUT abstinence and the benefits of it, rather than just assuming everyone will rush out and have sex asap as teenagers.
