Overcoming the ignorance of basic sex education.
Nurs Child Young People 2016; 28(8):13NC

Abstract

Another academic year is underway, and schools in England can again choose whether or not to teach sex and relationships education (SRE). The evidence in favour of making SRE a requirement in all schools is stacked higher than ever. One girl in four starts her period before she has learned about it, and 38% of boys do not learn anything about wet dreams before they experience them (Sex Education Forum (SEF) 2016a), which shows that even biological aspects of SRE are falling short.
