MOE may refresh sex-ed programme with more emphasis on abstinence over contraception
CONTRACEPTION may have to give some way to abstinence in a revised version of a Sexuality Education Programme (SEP) here. The New Paper understands that a draft of this revised SEP for all schools here has already been drawn up – and that the 30 or more Catholic Schools here should find fewer issues with it. Some communities find sections of the current programme overly promote the use of contraception, and lack emphasis on abstinence. They are especially offended by a video showing how a condom should be used. Others, however, are concerned about what the refreshed programme will entail. More in The New Paper on Monday (Dec 26).
