Sex education from biological/informative point of view is fine. Also important to teach that abstinence is the only way to be completely safe. I am also a proponent of teaching objective morality and justice in school, but that has classically been seen controversially. I think it is important that it is taught in school, although I feel like parents have a much greater responsibility in the issue. Of course there are things that the parents haven't been taught that the schools will do better. That is why it is so vital that it is taught in school. But schools should not be promoting a particular mindset or approach (and if they do promote one, I think abstinence is the healthiest and most responsible option to promote, even if it is taught alongside contraception).
