Thursday, Jan. 29, 8:00 pm
Hawaii's public schools provide children with a culturally responsive and factual
education about sexual health. And yet, our teen pregnancy rate is higher than

training goes into too many aspects of sexual health and doesn't give our young
teens the right message. Is the sexual education curriculum too detailed or not
detailed enough? Malia Mattoch hosts the discussion.
