Sex education in Myanmar


It is a controversial subject. Should children be taught sex education at school?


I remember when 'sex education' was introduced as part of the curriculum in the final year of high school in New Zealand. My elder brother, who was only 15 at the time, had to leave the classroom, because sex education could only be taught to students aged 16 and over.
