STDs and Sexual Education in Milwaukee, WI

Wisconsin state law encourages, but does not require, that localized school boards provide courses in sexual health education. The law does have guidelines that must be followed should a school district, such as the Milwaukee Public Schools system, choose to include sexual health education in their normal health education program. In 2012, state law also dictated that abstinence-only education must be taught in all sexual health classes, meaning that abstinence is taught as the only effective method of preventing the spread of STDs, HIV or unintended pregnancy. No student is allowed to participate in sexual health education without the written consent of their parents. All schools are required to notify parents by letter before any course of sexual health education begins. Parents have the right to remove their child from these programs if they so choose provided that they do so in writing. This is known by state law as the opt-out policy.6

In Milwaukee, high school aged people who are sexually active account for a large number of reported STD cases.

Additionally, it suggests that all women with multiple partners, regardless of age, should also be tested.5
