BC students want schools to provide more in-depth sexual education.
That according to a report authored by a not-for-profit organization committed to improving the health of young people.
Do your kids have questions about sex?
Executive Director of the McCreary Centre Society, Annie Smith, says some young people feel there are gaps in the current sexual education curriculum.
“They want information and right now they are often getting it from their friends. They know that their friends have misinformation, they know that the information they get is not from the best source and they would way rather they get it in a classroom setting or from an adult that they had a relationship with where they knew that they were getting reliable information.”
The report finds students in grade 7-12 are actually less sexually active than their peers were 5-10 years ago.
