Sex education in 10th grade?  Seems a little late to me, actually.

Yes, at least six grades too late, and probably 10 grades too late!

We started getting age appropriate sex ed books for our kids at 4 and 5 years old.  

But then they were around puppies, kittens and calves being born every year too, plus a breeding program for registered Angus cattle.  

Not exactly a mystery to them, but still needed the human elements clearly explained.

Guess, what??  Neither one has ever been involved in any way with an unwanted pregnancy!  Go figure.

It was required way back when I was in 7th grade (although my folks had already been through it) You know... right about the the time most of us were hitting puberty and (supposedly) wondering "what's making me feel this way?".

10th is a little late in the game.

Mine was in HS....not certain what year....it was part of the health class ciriculum

But back then it was considered supplementary to the education you would receive from your parents

I remember in 5th grade (mid-60's) being told by the teacher that we were going to be involved in a experimental sex-education class. Such classes weren't mainstream yet in US public schools. I was going to an elementary school for U.S Army dependants in Hawaii. I still have a few vague memories of films and drawings. It was a segregated class. Boys had theirs and girls had theirs. We weren't allow to talk about what we learned with the other group.

Did it do any good? I don't know. But, I remember thinking how bizzare the whole lesson was. I think it was only a couple of lessons over a couple of days.

Apparently in Idaho, reproduction is not part of the biological process.  Wonder how they do it there?

Graduated high school in 1959 in north east Texas.

No sex-ed at anytime during my school career.  

Learned it the old fashioned way, at the Trail drive-in. Real bad way to learn.  No questions, please.
