Educators wrack brains on how to teach sex education in Thai schools

Education scholars, social workers, teachers and youths have urged the government to improve sex education in the country’s schools. The participants, in a seminar on how to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among Thai teenagers, suggested that sex education should be integrated into other academic subjects, including Thai literature.

Teaching about sex should not be limited to hygienic studies in the classrooms, as it is at present, an education expert, Sirikorn Maneerin, told the seminar. The issues that should be included in sex education for children are HIV virus infection, teen pregnancy, equal rights between men and women and the respect for a woman’s right to decline sexual intercourse, she said.

More than 1,000 participants have been brainstorming on how to teach Thai school children about sex, at a three-day seminar which started in Bangkok on October 25. (TNA)
