Chlamydia Outbreak Hits "Abstinence-Only" Texas High School With No Sex Ed


Crane High School in Texas is considering expanding its sex education program beyond teaching abstinence as it is battling a chlamydia epidemic.

District officials say 20 of 300 students tested positive for the STD. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called the outbreak "a health issue at epidemic proportions".

"We do have an abstinence curriculum, and that evidently ain’t working. We need to do all we can, although it’s the parents’ responsibility to educate their kids on sexual education," superintendent Jim Rumange told the press.
