A new NPR/Kaiser/Kennedy School poll on sex education shows that while more than 90% of Americans approve of sex ed in schools, they don't all agree on how it should be taught. In the first of a two-part series, NPR's Wade Goodwyn takes us to an abstinence lecture at a Dallas Middle School, and talks with students about their impressions of it.
