ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of a study regarding the impact of abstinence-only sex education on the sexual behaviors of teenagers in Texas in 2005. Teenagers in several high schools became more sexually active after taking the courses. About $130 million will be allocated by the U.S. government to fund the courses despite a lack of evidence on their effectiveness. Research director Buzz Pruitt says that the courses seem to be more concerned on politics than on teenagers.
