The Dartmouth - Emily Sellers: A Sex Ed reality check

New Hampshire boasts one of the country’s lowest teen birth rates, with just 16 births per 1000 women aged 15 to 19. Compare this to New Mexico, one of the country’s highest teen birth rates, at 62 births per 1,000 teenage girls. As common sense would imply, New Hampshire requires a comprehensive sex education course in schools.
