From WYFF in Ohio:

Sex Ed Changes At School With 65 Pregnant Teens
August 15, 2006 (Link)

CANTON, Ohio -- An Ohio school board is expanding sex education following the revelation that 13 percent of one high school's female students were pregnant last year.

There were 490 female students at Timken High School in 2005, and 65 were pregnant, WEWS-TV in Cleveland reported. The new Canton school board program promotes abstinence but also will teach students who decide to have sex how to do so responsibly, bringing the city school district's health curriculum in line with national standards.
The textbooks were from 1988, although I am not sure what difference that makes to abstinence education. So books from the late Bush I administration and sex ed from the Middle Ages. Nice.
