dr David Coleman: It’s up to parents, not teachers, to teach kids about sex and relationships

A draft Short Course Curriculum Specification for the Junior Cycle Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE) was released for public consultation this week. The release of this draft curriculum specification is the result of several years of in-depth review and consultation of the SPHE and Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) programs in schools.

Significantly, all major stakeholders, ie students, parents and teachers, as well as various public and non-profit organizations, agreed that the SPHE program had shortcomings, particularly as it did not have a relationship or sex education component. Currently, practical information about puberty, physical changes, and basic sex education is usually taught in 5th or 6th grade, and then there is a break until high school in secondary school, where RSE reappeared.
