Friday’s Morning Zone!

7:07AM MDT:Today on Kids-At-Risk, John Frentheway and Renee’ Hanson explore  with host, Dave Chaffin, a recent study that shows that there’s been little progress in recent years in boosting the number of American secondary schools that teach students how to prevent pregnancy and protect themselves against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

That’s the finding from researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who analyzed 2008 and 2010 data from 45 states taking part in biennial surveys of school health practices.

The surveys assessed the percentage of schools in each state that teach specific topics related to HIV, STD and pregnancy prevention. The topics differ in middle schools and high schools, but generally include basic information on the transmission and diagnosis of HIV and other STDs, as well as pregnancy risk reduction. Condom use is one of the topics that’s covered only in high schools, the CDC said.

The surveys revealed few indications of progress between 2008 and 2010. For example, the percentage of middle schools that taught all essential topics to grades 6, 7 and 8 declined in 11 states and did not rise in any of the other 33 states.

8:07AM MDT: School Bullying-Bullying Hurts’ Marvin Nash joins Dave to reveal a new and exciting effort about to get underway to bring information to parents, students and the community to help deal with the issues of school bullying.

9:37AM MDT, Linda Gregg from the Cheyenne Family YMCA joins us for this week’s Step-Update
