A bill requiring abstinence only lessons in Tennessee classrooms is working its way through the legislature right now.
Lisa Marie Wadlington told abc24.com, "It's not reality based. They need to teach kids things that will help save them." She says abstinence only education is a failing proposition.
Michelle Brown feels the same way. Brown said, "Just telling kids, 'Don't have sex,' that's not something that's gonna be effective."
Wanda Gray believes abstinence only education can be effective. She said, "If it takes a teacher to teach them, to where they get it from the teacher than in the streets, that would be better."
Joshua James agreed, saying, "It worked for me, why shouldn't it work for anyone else?"
Melvin Jackson thinks teachers should go sit in the corner when it comes to sex education. He said, "I think that's something that should be left up to the parents."
