SHAPE America – Society of Health and Physical Educators supports age- and developmentally appropriate sex education as a critical component for all K-12 students in the United States. Standards-based sex education should be skills-based and comprehensive in scope. It should use accurate information and be responsive and affirming to the culture, identities, and lived experiences of students, families, and the community.
