Types of Education Needed

Sex positive: Teaching that recognizes that sexuality and sexual development are natural, normal, and healthy parts of our lives and refrains from using shame and fear to motivate students to be abstinent. 

Social and emotional learning: the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Comprehensive Sex/Sexuality Education: Programmes that build a foundation of knowledge and skills relating to human development, relationships, decision-making, abstinence, contraception, and disease prevention. Ideally, school-based comprehensive sex education should at least start from kindergarten and continue up to the last grade of High School. At each developmental stage, these programmes teach age-appropriate, medically accurate, and culturally responsive information that builds the knowledge and skills taught in the previous stage.
