    okay this is my two cents worth. Please be patient. firstly i agree that there should be some form of education. Especially in the area of sexuality. However what to teach is the question. If I am not wrong the present curriculum is basically not answering the root of the problem. Its like sex education is more like safe sex than teaching the holistic aspect of sex in the whole scope and process of man and humankind. I think that not only sexuality and sexual biology should be taight but it should be done in the context of parenting and marriage.

    The whole issue of Marriage even starting from courtship, dating. Don't even talk about pre-marital sex when there is no platform of "truth" so to speak to establish the concept of sex outside marriage. Whether it be pre or extra-martial sex or affairs.

    The whole concept of marriage needs to be defined. Society or at least the western society has no longer a predefined ritual or tradition anymore regarding life issues.

    Therefore sex education is a joke in my mind when the larger issue of Family. Of Marriage. Of Fatherhood. Of Motherhood. Of the spiritual union of 2 individual souls is non existence.

    Then the question what is man ? Who is he ? What is he doing here on earth ? Isnt that religious education tries to answer but is doing such a poor job at it.

    Religious and sex education is probabaly 5% if any of the 12 years of basic study and we expect the child to grow into a "role-model" adult. Why try to introduce this two subject, a sore thumb within the academic world. But there lies the source of all human answers. Parkinson's law. It is 5% becasue there is no coherent view and unity anymore. Tragic.

    The stress is on professional and technical skills. Becasue the popular view is man is an economic being and not first of all a spiritual being. The first premise is already on the wrong footing, how then to correct it. And that is what we get. Professionals and technicians that is ill adapt in parenting and reinventing the wheel everytime. Or in husbanding and in wiving.

    Look what is the Man teaching his children nowadays in the home. No not in speech but in action. What are the mothers teaching the daughters nowadays at home ? How to be a good wife and a good mother no, not in speech only but also in action.

    We need to return to the Truth. we need to return to basic of humanity and reach the core of our spirituality for the ideals in human life on earth. And establish the moral authority of parents and not they themselves are being screwed or so screwed that every generation is reinvienting the wheel.

    The problems that we have created cannot be solved at the same level as it was created. - Albert Einstein.

    Man need a higher platform.

    Child abuse, maybe, but pre-marital sex is not exactly rampant in Asia. In a few asian countries, this may be the case but most asians don't engage in pre-marital sex. I am, however, is in favor of sex education in the curriculum because many asians aren't all that aware of protected sex and sexual diseases.

    This is however, is not the main reason behind the rise of AIDS cases in Asia. Inappropriate practice with sharing needles in many asian hospitals is the major problem.

    There is no sex education in Asia. Yes I do think it should be a minor part of the education curriculum, so that children get appropriate answers for their age groups. Some parents don't know how to approach the subject and children start experimenting inappropriately long before their parents say a word about it.

    Information is power. If a child has been informed about the "basics" in sex education, s/he may figure out how to avoid a potentially dangerous situation (with a perpetrator.) In addition, if children were educated about the dangers of "sex tourism," then maybe the number of crimes against children will be reduced. Also, premarital sex may at least be practiced with condoms (reducing sexually transmitted diseases and teenage pregnancy.)

    i might say junior extreme yet interior the Philippines, there's no junior extreme. After consumer-friendly is extreme college so i believe it may start up interior the 1st twelve months of of highschool. regrettably, using fact the Philippines is pre-dominately catholic and the church honestly has each and all of the say interior the country, i honestly doubt they are going to be having intercourse training in college. regardless of the reality that it would be suited using fact the country is over populated and you obtain poverty, loss of jobs(income) and corruption interior the government on suitable of that.... i think of the Philippines could do like China and characteristic a a million infant regulation...yet thats yet another subject remember.

    Parents want teens to be taught to delay sexual activity until they are married or close to marriage. Abstinence is ignored completely by comprehensive sex-ed courses, which do not criticize casual sex and seldom mention marriage.

    Parents want teens to be taught that sex should be linked to love, intimacy, and commitment and that these qualities are most likely to occur in marriage . Comprehensive sex-ed programs do not discuss love, intimacy, or commitment and seldom mention marriage.

    Parents want teens to be taught that abstinence is best. Comprehensive sex-ed programs may claim to support this message, but in reality they do not. They teach mainly that abstinence is the "safest" choice, but that teen sex with protection is safe. Their overall message is that abstinence is marginally safer than safe sex. Beyond this, they have little positive to say about abstinence.

    Parents want teens to be taught that the younger the age an individual begins sexual activity, the greater the probability of harm. Comprehensive sex-ed programs teach about the threat of unprotected sex, not about the harm caused by sex at an early age. They do not urge young people to delay sex until they are older; voluntary sex at any age is depicted as okay as long as "protection" is used.

    Parents want schools to teach that teens who are sexually active are more likely to be depressed. Comprehensive sex-ed curricula ignore this topic.

    Parents believe that abstinence should be given emphasis that is more than, or equal to, that given to contraception. Regrettably, government spending priorities directly contradict parental priorities. Currently, the government spends at least $4.50 promoting teen contraceptive use for every $1.00 spent to promote teen abstinence.

    Comprehensive sex-ed curricula do not explicitly and directly encourage teen sexual activity, they do not discourage it either. As long as "protection" is used, teen sexual activity is represented as being rewarding, normal, healthy, and nearly ubiquitous. While "unprotected" sex is strongly criticized and discouraged, "protected" teen sex is presented as being fully acceptable. There is little or no effort to encourage young people to wait until they are older before becoming sexually active. By presenting "protected" teen sex activity as commonplace, fulfilling, healthy, and unproblematic, comprehensive sex-ed courses send a strong implicit anti-abstinence message to teens.

    So, I don't agree to include sex education in the curriculum. Just let the parents handle this job.
