Student In Malaysia Less Information Sex

MALAYSIA - The Malaysian government seems to fear, the children of senior high schools in the country do not have enough knowledge about sexuality. Therefore, the authorities consider the need for sex education for teenagers before they leave high school, said Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil, director general of the National Service Department, on Wednesday (14/5).
Abdul Hadi said the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development proposed the idea, but refused to cooperate. As a result, the final decision can yet be made.
Ng Yen Yen, the minister announced this plan, a national newspaper quoted Malaysia, Bernama, said that sex education, including lectures about preventing AIDS, can protect young children from unhealthy activities. Ng's aide confirmed the minister made the comments Tuesday.
Tens of thousands of boys and girls aged around 17 to 18 years selected at random each year to participate in training organized by the government.
Menjadihal sex often sensitive in a country predominantly conservative Islamic religion. Many unmarried couples kissing or hugging in public will be subject to fines / sanctions.
Therefore, the Malaysian Cabinet approved guidelines to teach sex education in schools which will be awarded for two years. Even so, the activists say that this is not going to happen. The officials suggested that the students are taught how to protect themselves from sexual predators, sexually transmitted diseases and reckless behavior.
Adeeba Kamarulzaman, president of the Malaysian AIDS Council, said Wednesday that students receive enough information about sex in public schools, which generally only teach basic facts about reproduction during science lessons.
Sex education classes given by the government could prove useful because many school teachers are too embarrassed to expound on matters related to sexuality, he explained.
"Better late than never," said Adeeba told AP. "This is a great opportunity. Students are entitled to correct information about it."
