Los Angeles School District Teaches Children to Share HIV, STD Status With Peers

By Melissa Barnhart
A first of its kind sex education program is being taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District, in which students as young as 12 are encouraged to share their HIV and STD status with their sexual partners by way of a text message that reveals they were tested for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis. The text message also includes a disclaimer, which reads: "This person MAY have had sex since being tested. Always be safe, use condoms." (A link to this page will be included in your message. )
