On Tuesday afternoon Niall Boylan spoke about plans to overhaul the way sex education is taught in schools. Richard Bruton recently wrote to the National Council on Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) that they consider certain areas in particular. These include:
• Consent, what it means and its importance
• Developments in contraception
• Healthy, positive sexual expression and relationships
• Safe use of the internet
• Social media and its effects on relationships and self-esteem
• LGBTQ+ matters
Would you be happy with your child being taught about the above in school?
