NACO committee may review school sex education curriculum

The National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), which is responsible for monitoring anti-AIDS programmes in the country, has said that it is ready to set up a committee to review the sex education curriculum in schools.

New Delhi, May 7: The National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), which is responsible for monitoring anti-AIDS programmes in the country, has said that it is ready to set up a committee to review the sex education curriculum in schools.

The move comes in the wake of a ban on sex education by states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka Chhattisgarh, and Maharastra.

These states have objected to the present sex education curriculum in schools.

NACO Director General K. Sujatha Rao said that her organization has admitted that sex education material, is meant for teachers of senior secondary schools, and should not be explicit.

Rao further said that she was ready to set up an expert committee to find out if something in the existing curriculum was hurting public sentiments.

Rao said the amendments, if any, would be done without compromising on the educational message.

She described the State Government's move to ban sex education in schools as an act of 'hypocrisy' which would impact children from poor families, for whom school education was the main source of information.
