Wright said it’s important that kids don’t get mixed messages at school.
"It might be the only place that some students hear about abstinence," Wright said. "We’re not denying them anything. We’re giving them an opportunity to hear about something that maybe nobody has ever taught them."
Wright gave his presentation at a table next to his granddaughter, who he said is in seventh grade. He said part of the reason he brought the small, blond girl was because "she represents the innocence of those we’re really talking about."
