Types of Sex Education Traditional Sex Education Traditional sex education programs lend to focus solely on student acquisition of knowledge about reproduction and birth control.There is an assumption that adolescents will
translate the knowledge into avoidance of unprotected sex Safer-Sex: HIV Risk-Reduction Intervention was designed to: increase HIV/STD knowledge and the specific belief that using condoms could prevent pregnancy, STD's, and HIV; increase skills and self-efficacy regarding their ability to use condoms, including confidence that they could negotiate condom use with sexual partners 1.Formal Sex Education - when schools or health care providers offer sex education.

-Against the use of contraceptives

-Argues that the responsibility of teaching sexual education lies in the home. 'Pro-Life' belief that abortion and use of contraceptives is wrong, and more that teaching a student how to use contraceptives, they will be more likely to go out and seek sex. What is Sex Education?

Instruction on issues relating to human sexuality, including human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse or other sexual activity, reproductive health, emotional relations, reproductive rights and responsibilities, abstinence, and birth control. •“Pornography is fiction. That’s part of why many people enjoy it. However, there’s a risk if young women and men misunderstand sex as a result of a porn-only sex education.”

•“Many of my college students who have watched porn but had little sex education (whether in schools or from their families) often have a skewed view of sex.”

•“If parents and schools don’t teach teenagers about sex, intimacy and healthy relationships, then pornography will remain their primary source of sex information. It doesn’t have to be that way. We need age- and developmentally appropriate sex education in schools that spans years, not just a single video about puberty in fifth grade. “ No Substitute for Sex Ed by Debby Herbenick •from (http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2012/11/11/does-pornography-deserve-its-bad-rap/pornography-is-no-substitute-for-sex-ed) Objective: CASE STUDY Case Study # 1 Case Study #2 Case Study Analysis: Parent knows the child better than the public school system, and can therefore teach the child what he/she needs to know at an appropriate time, and instill the values associated with that parent's viewpoint in the child. Forms of Sex Education The Vatican II Declaration on Education calling for “positive and prudent sexual education,” when it gets around to discussing where education should be performed, speaks of the Catholic school as performing its services “as partners of the parents . . . [with] due regard in every educational activity to sexual differences” (emphasis added). (Whitehead 1996) BOOKS The Internet Advice
Wikipedia Definition FREAKY STUFF Interview Abstinence Only Programs focus on the importance of abstinence from sexual intercourse until marriage. They do not provide students with the opportunity to learn the necessary information and skills to reduce the risks of sexual activity if they do choose to have intercourse. The Second World War seems to have resulted in an increase in school sex education and a
shift, in one of the aims of sex education, towards the prevention of syphilis and gonorrhea. Methodology Asst. Prof. Brenda Boladola ( Principal of SUHS) •According to her, Sex Education is a kind of knowing responsibly about sex, it’s not just about the intercourse, but it’s also about getting to know about reproductive health.
•It’s more on the health and wellness of the person, that’s why it is important that the child must know about sex education. Mr. Arnold Jungco ( Principal of NOHS) •He believes that Sex Education can help the students to be more aware since using high technologies today is very rampant.
•He agreed that Sex Education really need to be discussed about. Case Study # 1 Case Study # 2 ... small Biblio-Theological Reflection Bible “ Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous” ( Hebrews 13:4)
“ For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God” (1 Thessalonians 4:3-5)
“To the unmarried and the widows I say that it is good for them to remain single as I am. But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion” ( 1 Corinthians 7:8-9) The Catholic Church’s belief about the traditional teaching of sex education, is should not be primarily a matter of giving explicit “information” at all, but rather it should be a matter of inculcating modesty, purity, chastity, and morality, a matter of teaching the sixth and ninth commandments. Introduction Individual Standpoint Asst. Prof. Brenda Boladola
* Knowing how to be sexually responsible
* Health awareness (taking care of the body)
-Utilitarian Approach
For her, by laying the options on how to be sexually responsible and include sex education in the curriculum produces positive effects in the society as a whole. Mr. Arnold Jungco
* Awareness
" If it's the law, and I'm tasked then, we have to implement it "
He mentioned that he has nothing against this new law of implementing sex eduction to his high school students, and admitted that it can be beneficial to the society in general, since for him, the reality is glaring and we can't just disregard it. By his statement above, it was Deontological Approach since he kept his personal opinion separate from his duties as the school principal. * To determine the relevance of implementing sex education in schools. Protestant •Protestants support comprehensive sexuality education.
•“But practically, since so many parents refuse to assume this responsibility (sex education), it is necessary for some other agency to assume it.” – Rev. Sidney W. Powell
•Churches and synagogues have an important role in sexuality education. They are the major community institutions specifically charged with bringing an openly moral perspective to their work with youth. While responsibility for sexuality education belongs primarily to parents or guardians, many families would like assistance from religious institutions in communicating values and norms.
