Compulsory relationship education – a step in the right direction

The UK announced that it will make sex and relationship education compulsory for all pupils aged 5 to 16.  While the details are not clear, and sex education for the youngest groups is not advisable (and is not proposed), this kind of practical education is critical if people are to develop emotional intelligence and life skills. Education about drugs, including alcohol, will also be upgraded.

The Department for Children, Schools and Families said the review of sex lessons had identified “a need to challenge the perception that sex and relationships education happened in a ‘moral vacuum’ in schools and says that parents and schools can and should work together to decide how best topics should be taught.”
