LAND ‘O’ LAKES, Fla. (FOX 13) – Change is coming to health and sex education at Pasco County schools. The curriculums are being revised for the first time in 15 years, based partially on results of surveys taken by students.
More than 1,400 students from 13 high schools filled out an anonymous and voluntary survey covering a wide range of health-related behaviors.

Some of the notable statistics found in the surveys are:
– 36.5% of students say they have had sexual intercourse.
– 3.4% of students under the age of 13 say they have had sexual intercourse.
