MercatorNet asked Valerie Huber about Ascend and its approach to helping teens through the sexual challenges of adolescence

“MercatorNet asked Valerie Huber about Ascend and its approach to helping teens through the sexual challenges of adolescence.”  In the interview, Ms. Huber discusses Ascend, the benefits of Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) education and the role of the parent in SRA programs.
In the last response, Huber explains, “SRA programs have the long-term goal of encouraging teens to wait for sex until marriage, but we also applaud every incremental step toward that goal. High expectations move individuals forward even if they don’t meet the ultimate goal. We set waiting for sex until marriage as the goal because social science research is replete with the advantages of reserving sex until marriage.”

Abortion Providers should not be in Schools

Do you see a conflict of interest with abortion providers or affiliates providing curriculum or instruction in Texas schools?

Many Sexual Risk Reduction programs are published by ETR Associates, the former education department for Planned Parenthood Santa Cruz.

Sexual Risk Reduction programs focus on teaching students how to use condoms so that they can reduce their risks instead of teaching them the benefits of Sexual Risk Avoidance.
