Do you think education is working?

Now that most adults are aware of the consequences and we teach our children in school about STDs, do you think it's making a difference? Are things like herpes, genital warts, and gonorrhea going to be a thing of the past soon?

Maybe STD's are going away but teenage pregnancy is on the rise.  If kids are having sex and not protecting themselves they can still get STD's.  I hear more about HPV right now than any of the others you listed.  I really don't think education is working.

I doubt they will ever become a thing of the past, because unfortunately teens, especially, tend to think they are invincible and choose to learn from their own mistakes rather than taking note of the results of others'.

I agree that STD's will probably never be a thing of the past, because people will make mistakes despite the knowledge they have. We all know cigarette smoking is terrible for your health, but many still choose to smoke. That being said, I think education is at least helping. If eliminating a problem is impossible, lowering the occurrence of it is still a positive thing to work towards.

The only way to stop STD is to really control teenagers with their activities which is impossible to do. Teens will experiment because of the hormones that are being released on their puberty period.
