The authors discuss evidence-based sexual education programs in U.S. schools, focusing on two federal programs, the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative (TPPI) and the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP). They discuss programs approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, arguing that the approved programs do not cover a broad range of topics, are unaffordable, and that not enough programs exist for use in middle and high schools.
