The only sex education taught in schools s/b medical & biological in nature.

Sexually explicit material is NOT needed to cover the required curriculum, therefore, should not be used.  Opting students out of books/materials being read by the majority of the class is better than forcing students to be exposed to said material; however, it also creates a lack of inclusion.  

Also, sexual values should be taught at home, not at school to ensure that students are not being taught values that conflict with the religious views of their family/culture.
