New York City is in the midst of a sex education revolution.
But for some parents and teachers, the issue is complicated by a number of new technologies.
Here’s what you need to know about the education industry.

Many educators are defending their work, arguing that their curriculums don’t make kids more promiscuous.
A number of organizations have come out in support of sex ed, and the American Academy of Pediatrics recently approved an updated version of its curriculum, which includes “condom education” as part of a broader campaign to reduce sexually transmitted infections.
While the majority of American teens report being sexually active in their lifetimes, only a tiny percentage actually use the Internet to get laid.
The National Center for Health Statistics says only about 4 percent of teens have used an internet dating site to meet their partner, and fewer than 1 percent have used a peer-to-peer platform to find a sexual partner.
While education is often seen as the only way to educate students, that’s not always the case.
Schools have an array of tools to help them, including online resources like tutoring programs and free tutoring, free sex ed programs, and free videos, all of which have been available for several years.
“We’ve been in the sex education game for 30 years,” said Dr. Paul R. Sullivan, director of the Center for the Study of Sex and Gender at the University of New Mexico.
“We just think we have more tools than we used to.
And we’re just getting started.”
To date, schools have offered sex education classes on everything from birth control to condom use, from pre-teens to teens.
The American Academy is the latest group to offer a new set of curriculms aimed at helping teens navigate a world where they’re more likely to be sexually active.
The New York State Department of Education is the main agency involved in the education of New York’s students.
In 2017, it launched a new program called The New Sex Educators.
This initiative includes workshops for educators, social workers, and psychologists.
“The purpose of The New SEX Educators is to provide the tools and knowledge necessary to enable educators to engage with the sex ed student population,” the department said in a statement.
“The new curriculum will be updated every year to address student needs and to provide a more inclusive, inclusive education.”
Teachers are also in the mix for the new curriculum.
“Teachers have been doing this work for over 30 years and they’ve done it with the same tools that we have today,” Sullivan said.
“What we’re trying to do is make sure we have the most up-to_date and current curriculum and to be able to offer the best education to the student population.”
For parents, the most pressing issue is whether they should continue to send their kids to sex ed classes.
Many of the sex educators in the new program have been active advocates for safer sex.
In a 2016 article in the New York Post, Dr. Andrew Kolodny, the founder of the Institute for the Future, an education reform group that advocates for more sexual education, wrote that “most sex education experts I know believe that the most effective way to help prevent pregnancy and STDs is to teach the child how to have a safe sexual experience.”
“I would like to think that most of these sex ed teachers who are teaching in the school system are not going to be encouraging kids to engage in sexual intercourse,” said Katherine Schatz, the president of the New Jersey-based Sex Education Advocates.
“It’s hard to know how many of them are actually educating kids to get them to be responsible about what they’re doing.”
The Department of Health and Human Services, the nation’s largest health care provider, is also the primary sponsor of The Sex Education Partnership, a national coalition of health providers and other organizations that promote sex education.
“I think the key to the success of any sex education program is having a broad coalition of providers working together,” said Elizabeth Shulman, executive director of New Jersey’s Sex Education Alliance.
“I would hope that they are reaching out to everyone, including parents, and educating kids, and helping them get the most out of the resources they have.”
For educators like Sullivan, a key to success is to find the right audience for their curriculum.
For example, he said that he thinks sex ed has been the “gold standard” for teaching sexual health for decades.
“What we are teaching is the way to be healthy, safe, and to have healthy sexual relations,” he said.
“If we can help parents and students to learn about sexual health, it’s going
