Elected officials are speaking their minds concerning the state with the highest teen pregnancy rate - Mississippi.
The governor has mandated all state schools to teach sex education for the FIRST TIME.
No wonder they have such high rates.
Every kid should learn about sex education, come on!
Research suggests high rates of teen pregnancy is often prompted by poverty.
Social workers try to take a honest approach in their dialogues with lower class girls that range from topics such as sex, parenting, jobs and family hopes.
Hopefully, this can help ease the burden of those teen baby bumps!
