High School and College Sexual Education Experiences of Brockport Students

Sexual knowledge is a particularly important topic, especially when considering the shift students make from the high school world to the college atmosphere. The basics of sex and sexual life are not taught consistently among high schools, which can lead to alarming rates of teen pregnancy and STIs. The time of adolescence, which includes high school and early college years, is a high sexual risk-taking time. Research on this topic is extremely important in examining what type of information students received in high school and how colleges can improve their teaching on this topic. By surveying students on their experiences with sexual education in high school and at Brockport, this information can begin to unfold. Sexual knowledge is something that could use more attention throughout many high school and college campuses.
