The Wireless Preview - Lucy Smith

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:15 pm on 30 March 2016

Sex education has been taught in New Zealand schools since 1999, and last year the Ministry of Education released an updated guide for schools on teaching sexuality which addresses issues of consent, coercion and cultural differences. But while sex ed is a compulsory part of the curriculum, schools are free to decide how they teach it - so what we learn (and don't learn) can vary wildly from one school to the next. Lucy Smith hit the streets for The Wireless to find out people learnt in high school sex education and what they wished they'd been told.
