"Evidence-Based" Sex Ed Gets $144M From Obama
The Obama administration is allocating $114 million this year to comprehensive sexual education programs for youth nationwide that use an “evidence-based approach,” NPR reports. Abstinence-only programs will continue to get support, but most of the funding will go to programs that have proved they reduce teen pregnancy. Schools and community groups can apply for federal funding if they replicate one of 28 approved programs, such as the “Carrera model” created by Michael Carrera of New York City.
