If you think students should get an unbiased and accurate education, then you probably won't be happy about the state of sex education in America.

Around the country, teachers can provide sex education courses that are biased against specific races or ethnicities, that are inappropriate for students’ ages and that promote specific religious agendas, according to a recent Guttmacher Institute analysis. Furthermore, 37 states reportedly allow for medically inaccurate sex education, and only 18 states require teachers to provide information about contraception.

Given these figures, it is hardly surprising that the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate of any other developed country.

Below, we have compiled 5 maps breaking down the depressing state of sex education requirements around the country.

Prepare to be horrified.
