Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala education minister V Sivankutty here on Saturday informed that sex education will be included in the school curriculum after two years. Clarifying his statement, he added that at least two years will be taken to revise the school curriculum and textbooks.
“Sex education will be included in the new school curriculum. It is really important to include the topic in the syllabus. At present, many issues are found due to the non-inclusion of sex education in the curriculum,” said the minister.
The state government has taken a policy to encourage gender equality in schools. But we can’t forcefully implement it. The decision of PTA and others is very important in this movement, he added.
