Description:
Becoming a sexually healthy adult is a key developmental task for adolescents. Education, in its broadest sense, is essential for the development of skills that enable young people to cope with the challenge of adolescence and to move comfortably and confidently into the realm of sexual activity. It is widely accepted that young people have the right to sex education, partly because it is a means by which they are helped to protect themselves against abuse, exploitation, unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS. Recent research in the Republic of Ireland (Hyde & Howlett 2004, Mayock & Byrne 2004), Northern Ireland (Rolston, Schubotz & Simpson 2005) and in the UK (Lowden & Powney 1996, Measor, Tiffin & Miller 2000, Wight & Scott 1994) indicates that pupils want more detailed information and discussion about sex and sexual relationships both in and out of school.
