Don't they teach sex education in Dominican public schools?
Or is the country too religious/puritan to educate young teens about condoms and pregnancy prevention?

This problem stems from lack of education.
In Cuba education is free, mandatory and more comprehensive, so you never hear about teen moms being a national issue.

You don't hear about them, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. I came across more than a few in my travels.

Hogwash, education in Cuba is indoctrination, and selective, and Cuba has one of highest rates of teen abortion and suicide. My sister in law is Cuban and taught high school there for 10 years.

This program won't make a difference.
The 18 to 25 year old Ninis will who can
not get a girl their own age mainly due to
their financial situation will continue having
sex with young girls who are naive and impressionable.

Ask any young mother under the age of 18
how old the baby's father is if you don't believe me.
14 and 15 year olds having sex with guys in their early
twenties is normal in the DR. Good luck with changing it.

Funny my cuban friends who are educators (PhDs) would not agree with your and your teacher sister in laws educated opinion. And your anger with cubans appears pretty overwhelming. Thank goodness they have education where students might be learning (of course politically speaking it is what it is). And they get their abortions instead of what goes on, out of control elsewhere. .

Also life expectancy is higher in Cuba (77.5 years old) in comparison with the DR (72.8 years old), and I assume this is largely due to the completely free and mandatory education and free healthcare.

A more educated population can make better and informed decisions for their health and birth control.

LOL, l like Cubans, and have spent a lot of time in Cubans homes away from the prying eye and ears of Government spies. I know a lot of educated Cubans, university professors, doctors...etc. Who do you think enlightened me to how horrible their education system really is? We will have to disagree of the value of terminating a human like, especially when BC is readily available, except maybe not in Cuba's wonderful medical system.

You are delusional. Cuban government numbers are as accurate as China's covid stats.

lmao, you mean the communist Cuba that jails and kills people for different opinions. The place where people make 25 dollars a month and stand in bread lines. They do have education. It's called brainwashing!
