Teachers are not necessarily educated for teaching sex

Teachers in urban areas and in rural areas may have different standards of education to teach sex education or even not educated for this subject, while it is a very sensitive topic and requires careful guidance.

Base on the education policy of Denmark, schools are obliged to have sex education yet teachers do not need to be trained for teaching the subject.

Schools can choose to hire NGOs to provide sex education but extra fee needs to be paid.

Even so, schools have been playing a more important role than parents in terms of spreading sex knowledge.

According to the Danish Family Planning Association’s 2011 annual report, almost half of the young people in Copenhagen treated schools’ education as an important source of sex knowledge.

It might be time for parents to pay more attention to the education content in school, while schools are suggested to have tighter control on teaching resources.
