Sex education in Bengal schools still a matter of debate

Views: 4.5K

Study of sex education in the state-run schools of West Bengal is still a matter of debate. The state education ministry is still in the process of collecting views of various educationists and stakeholders on the matter.
Last year, the Council of Boards of School Education in India (Cobse) had proposed the inclusion of adolescent education as part of the syllabus from classes 8 to 12. A few years back, the previous Left Front government in the state had introduced teaching of sex education under the name of lifestyle education. But it proved to be a failure with reluctant teachers utilising the lifestyle education classes for finishing the syllabus in other subjects. Therefore, the present state education minister wants to consult all the stakeholders before implementing sex education in the state-run schools.
