Capstone Project Title
The Benefits of Incorporating Comprehensive Sex Education into a Curriculum as Early as Kindergarten
Shelley Orr and Maggie Struck
Research has demonstrated that there are a variety of benefits that students, schools, and communities experience when comprehensive sex education is implemented. These benefits include positive changes in student mental and sexual health, positive changes in violence reduction amongst students, and positive changes in community norms. The capstone project created as a result of this research is a website that advocates for comprehensive sex education in the state of Minnesota. The website is meant to be a resource for both parents and educators to learn about comprehensive curriculum, the current sex education standards and where they are lacking, and to have the option to encourage legislators to change the standards so that comprehensive curriculum is a requirement for all students.
