Quoted: Sex education reintroduced in schools

(Quoted - The Sunday Times, May 9, 2010)


Sex education reintroduced in schools

"In the end, a delicate balance needs to be made between recognizing the inherent sexual curiosity of teenagers and providing boundaries to this curiosity.
Lines need to be drawn, but where to draw them, that is the question. Fortunately, the silver lining here is that while the Ministry of Education’s stance is pro-abstinence, it however not only teaches this but also provides information about contraception."

"Instead of providing material that morally judges an act to be right or wrong, the material can identify the religions and cultures that deem the act to be right or wrong.
This way, the young not only learn about sexuality but also the diversity of opinions of sexuality. Any way, should Singaporeans not be well acquainted with the concept diversity?"
