OR is 31/51 for teen pregnancies. Difficult to correlate to edu when it's not being measured in any way - and little to no edu is being taught in elementary school, and middle school edu is very limited and often taught by PE teachers.

How many students in Oregon (the entire state) receive Comprehensive Sexual Health education - grades 4 through University? If so, what curricula is the school using, how many hours of edu a year does the student receive, and is the instructor trained in the subject?
