It helps people perform better and to get jobs or increase their capacity in all things . It lowers frustration as one becomes able to do more actions accurately and effectively.

Education provides knowledge and increases a thirst for more knowledge as it leads to developing social interactions that are induced by the need to share ideas or thoughts. It is part of evolving. Education helps people to have multiple diverse topics to be interested in which lead to more education that is shared with those in need.

Sex education is important. It's been proven time and time again. We know students who receive formal sex education in schools are shown to first have sexual intercourse later than students who have not had sex education. Sex education does not encourage teenagers to have sex, it does quite the opposite.

 

Every teenager should have sex education incorporated into their schooling. It shouldn’t be opt-in or opt-out but mandatory. Why should parents be able to opt their children in or out of a subject that they'll need later in life, one way or another? Sex education should be mandatory, comprehensive, medically accurate, and taught throughout student's school years, just like math. It's been shown to help students, not hurt. Not only is having access to sex education that is not only comprehensive but medically accurate a human right, it's our fundamental duty as a society to educate the next generation

 

If sex positive attitude is part of sex education then it is a must.

Sex education will be great if it is not limited only to what is penis, vagina, intercourse, hazards of unprotected sex, and anatomy of genitals.

More importantly it should include, importance of providing good sex, taking it as an both pleasurable and reproductive activity, negatives of slut shamming, sexual compatability and most importantly Consent without alcohol.

The purpose of sex education should be to liberate both men and women in India about their sexuality and their choices about it.

Sex Education should also include, unpacking and undoing of various belief based on myths.

In totality sex Education should be to encourage healthy sex life of individuals and rise above the past social structures about sex.

The role of society is to create a platform for children to be educated about themselves, both physically and emotionally; to teach the academic aspects of various subjects; to teach about their role and responsibility towards one another, their role towards their families, and towards society, as a whole.

A young boy or girl who is just entering teens, needs to learn all aspects about physiological and emotional changes that he or she will be going through while growing up. This information and awareness is absolutely essential for that young individual, in order to ensure that he or she can make informed choices as one goes through the teen years.

It is due to this woeful lack of information and awareness that children go through traumatic experiences that range from sexual abuse to emotional and physical abuse, without knowing the implications of these or what recourse to take and this leads to the victim being emotionally and sometimes, physically, scarred for life.

Therefore, it’s the responsibility of society to ensure that every boy and girl is provided with the necessary information and is taught all the preventive and corrective measures to be taken in case of any eventuality.

The problem is whose responsibility is it? Is it the parent’s or the school’s or the peer group’s or a third party, is where the debate becomes controversial? The content and methodology of delivery of sex education is still being debated around the world. And in the cross fire of debate our children stand unaware, confused and very vulnerable. Can our society afford that?
