Basically, public schools would stop teaching abstinence only sex ed and would instead teach comprehensive sex ed, which is how to have safe sex, avoid STIs and pregneancies and such.
You would be allowed to choose to not have your child participate in this class, instead opting to take your child to a church or private instituion for whatever sexual education you believe in. I think this is fine as many kids already go to Sunday or bible school anyway outside of school. Home schooling is always an option for this as well (though super awkward for the kids I would think!)
Basically, as it stands now, it is the opposite in most fo the US. In schools, abstinance only is tought and if you want your kids to learn comprehensively about sex, there ara a fair amount of local non profits and stuff to take them to. So this is really just swiching the scenerio. I believe in swiching because abstinence only sex ed is mostly founded on relgion, which should not be kept in public schools, but the schools should also respect parents who wish for their kids to sit this class out and find alternative methodes to educating their children. I acknowledge that abstinence only is the only true way to avoid pregnenacy and STIs, but I think over the last two decades, it is very clear that teaching this does not effect how many teens actually have sex (we also have the highest number of STIs in teens out of the western world), and we are better off equipping them with the tools to not get pregnent and to avoid STIs.

I think this'll be a lot better than saying why you shouldn't have sex, and no reasons why really besides pregnancy. Just teach them about safe sex and accept the fact that we're going to one day, so might as well teach us how to prevent teen parents.
Also, way better than just pretty much telling girls how to avoid a pregnancy and all the bad that comes with it. They rarely do, and if at do at all poorly, explain the consequences for a young guy but God forbid a girl gets pregnant. It takes sperm and an egg to get a girl pregnant, but seems its forever her fault.0
