In an article on sex education published by The74million.org, Dr. Eva Goldfarb was quoted regarding statistics on the subject in New Jersey. Dr. Goldfarb is a Professor of Public Health, working in the field of sexuality education. Over the past twenty-five years, she has developed and led sexuality education and sexual health programs with youth, parents, educators, and other professionals and has trained current and future school teachers across the country. Additionally, Dr. Goldfarb specializes in gender and health, curriculum development, and program evaluation.
Dr. Goldfarb noted that only 1 in 10 of the students she teaches received proper sex education, and this lack of knowledge puts them at risk, despite the fact that New Jersey is considered to have one of the most progressive sex education laws in the country.
