Cornell Alum Provides Interesting Take on Abstinence-Only Education

A recent graduate of Cornell University recently wrote an article on the Jemmott study, which recently reported that they had found that an abstinence-only curriculum taught to younger teens was effective at delaying sex. We’ve heard a lot about this study, and why it shouldn’t be taken to mean that ALL abstinence-only education is effective: the program in question didn’t impose morality, didn’t follow the A-H guidelines, was used with younger teens, etc. This is another piece to consider when filtering through the results of the study.
