Oklahoma is ranked 2nd highest in our nation for teen birth rates to older teens and it is very likely Blackwell ranks higher in teen births than the state average. It is time to stop ignoring this issue and face it head on. We need to face the facts that teens are and will have sex and start providing them with information they need to make good decisions in regards to sex in order to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs. Something needs to be done. Please help me in raising awareness of this issue and sign my petition in order provide adequate sex education to Blackwell students.
