No sex ed on the timetable

AN Alicante University (UA) study revealed that young people arriving there had received scant sex education.

Students in the second year of Nursing at UA said that instruction at their secondary schools had been insufficient or non-existent. Talks concentrated on the biological aspects of sex related to the reproductive organs and were badly rated by the students who had attended them.

Sexual education is not part of the education programme in Valencian Community schools, the researchers pointed out, and students had little knowledge of sexual and reproductive health. They were also largely unaware of the sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that are increasing amongst young people.

Sexuality, sexual health and reproductive health are not part of the Nursing programme at UA, although students had expected that these subjects would enter into their curriculum of studies, they said.
