Sex Education ‘Should Be Made Compulsory in Primary Schools’

According to the Telegraph online, Education Select Committee calls for sex education to be compulsory in primary and secondary schools amid fears over the sexualisation of children by the internet.

A report by the Education Select Committee has called for sex and relationships education to be placed on the national curriculum for the first time – making it a statutory requirement in all state primary and secondary schools.

MPs were told it is now “normal” for 14-year-olds to pose in bras for social media photos and that around one in three 15-year-olds had sent someone a naked photo of themselves.

It is hoped such a move would help address “problems” in society including teenage pregnancy, STI rates, drug and alcohol abuse, cyberbullying, and child sexual exploitation.

Parents what are thoughts on this?
