PRESIDENT of the Jamaica Family Planning Association, Sonia Folkes, has added to the calls for the introduction of sex education in the school curriculum, saying that children should be taught about their sexual and reproductive health from as young as seven reports the Jamaica Observer.

According to Folkes, sexual and reproductive health education is very critical given the number of young children who are engaging in sexual activities without knowing how to protect themselves.

According to the latest Reproductive and Health Survey, nearly 12 per cent of Jamaican girls reported having had sex before age 15.

What do you think Stush peeps? Sex-ed in schools? Yay or nay? Will it really make a change?
