Experts suggest that middle schools should arrange sex education classes: help children not be shy

Recently, Ma Xiuzhen, member of the National Committee of the Chinese people's Political Consultative Conference, suggested that sexual health education should be included in the curriculum system for middle school students. According to the age of students and the characteristics of subject education, we should make clear class arrangement, set up the post of sexual health education teacher, formulate the standard guide of sex education curriculum, and bring the teaching evaluation of sex education curriculum into the quality monitoring of compulsory education.

In Ma Xiuzhen’s opinion, the addition of the above-mentioned classes will improve the sexual health level of teenagers, mainly in the following aspects:

4. We should establish the supervision mechanism of sex education evaluation, bring the teaching evaluation of sex education curriculum into the quality monitoring and evaluation system of compulsory education, and monitor the effect of sex education teaching.

Ma Xiuzhen proposed that we should implement the strategy of “family school combination” and attach importance to the joint role of school, family and community in middle school students’ sex education. Based on the cooperation of campus, classroom, family and community, the education of sexual physiology, sexual concept and sexual morality should be integrated into teenagers’ daily life. At the same time, we should purify the network environment from the root. Set up a special Internet regulatory agency, regulate Internet behavior, purify the network air, focus on games, audio-visual materials and website advertising, and eliminate bad information in the network.

“Sex education should not be” too shy to talk about “, but should be frank with their children about their feelings and sex, so as to help them spend the budding and restless rainy season healthily.” Ma Xiuzhen.
