Minnesota Sexuality Education Survey

The debate over sexuality education in Minnesota schools has been going on for years. Now, for the first time in the states history, Minnesotans both parents and non-parents have been asked what type of sexuality education they think should be taught in the schools.

The following is a summary of some of the results of this landmark survey. More complete copy of the survey can be found online at moappp.org or by calling MOAPPP, 651-644-1447 or 800-657-3697 toll-free in Greater MN.

Summary of Findings

APCO Insight, a public opinion research firm located in Washington, DC conducted this survey of MN residents for the Minnesota Organization on Adolescent Pregnancy, Prevention, and Parenting. The survey was conducted among 612 randomly selected adults in the state of Minnesota, including an oversample of 105 non-Caucasian residents. Interviews were conducted over the telephone between April 8-10, 2000. The margin of error for most questions is +/- 4.4%.

Funding for this survey was provided to MOAPPP by the Jay and Rose Phillips Foundation.

A similar national survey conducted in 1999 by Advocates for Youth and the Sexuality Information and Education Coalition of the US (SIECUS) received similar results. According to this poll, 93% of Americans support sexuality in high school and 84% in junior high school. And, 7 out of 10 Americans oppose the provision of federal funds for abstinence-only-until-marriage sexuality education.
