PLEASE TAKE TIME TO RESPOND TO THIS SURVEY – THE SURVEY END DATE IS 12TH FEB 2018
Sex Education has become compulsory in schools. Many would say that the state is undermining parents, is heavily promoting the LGBT agenda, is undermining marriage and is failing to promote a true understanding of sex and love.
But a new Government consultation gives us the opportunity to let the state know how sex education should be taught. You could highlight the need for parental involvement and the dangers of pornography.
If you’re a parent, teacher or other concerned organisation, I know this will matter to you and it worth spending a bit of time on. So, when you get a chance, please respond to this consultation and let the Department of Education know how you think sex education should be taught.
The survey primarily wants to know what subject areas you think should be taught in RSE and PSHE (Personal, Social Health and Economic education – PSHE is often seen as an extension of RSE where many topics overlap, but where topics such as drugs, alcohol, bullying and consumer advice are also included).
You can only write 250 words and if you have nothing to say for a particular question, don’t put anything.
CitizenGo are a lobby group that seeks to help Christians make their views clear on subjects like this one. They have suggested the following guidance in making your point on the Governments online survey.
As I have said before, one of the difficulties with teaching RSE in schools, is that the school and many individual teachers are basically not equipped to teach children about the true meaning of love and sexuality. With parents, schools should really be teaching children about their own inherent worth and dignity, as well as about the true meaning of love (as involving self-sacrifice for another) and responsibility.
As I said, these are only some thoughts and if there is anything from your own experience or anything important that you wish to add, please do so.
This consultation goes on until the 12th FEBRUARY, so you make sure you fill it in when you get a chance!
