Sex Education in Philippine Education System

The Department of Education strongly enforce inclusion of sex education among elementary and high school students to encourage more awareness. With the increasing number of unwanted pregnancy and health issues, the government agency was simply alarmed along with other concerned parents.

I however, personally favor inclusion of sex education in the academe because even medical experts say that sex education can be taught as early as three years old. When responsible sex education is in play, students can be better taught how to handle pressures in sex and its possible consequences.

However, sex education is limited and within the topic coverage set by the institution. Knowledge on sex, its consequences including medications like testosterone pills can help the young ones make the right decision.

When kids are responsibly informed, they grow wiser and smarter and more responsible.
