Wondering how we teach about consent, sexual health, and human trafficking in San Francisco schools? Asking how we handle this differently in our elementary, middle and high schools? Hear all about it in this 12-minute radio interview I did with my co-worker Erica Lingrell for KALW’s “Looking at Education” show.
I’m so glad I got a chance to discuss SFUSD’s ongoing partnership with Expect Respect, and why I think it’s important to teach about healthy dating in schools. I also talk about why, as the parent of a teenager, I value comprehensive sexuality education. Toward the end of the interview, I share some tips for parents about how to start talking about sex and relationships with teens, and how health class can be a catalyst for those talks.
I hope you enjoy listening!
