Sex Ed to Combat Poverty

“Knoxville really needs comprehensive sex education in its middle schools and high schools so that 25 percent of Tennessean women don’t live in poverty; so that nearly 25 percent of alternative high school students aren’t teenage mothers; so that we increase the quality of life of Tennesseans by increasing the number of adults with college degrees and decreasing the number of children raised in or slightly above poverty.”

—Brianna Rader, co-founder of University of Tennessee’s Sex Week
