CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

Sex education is one of the major determinants of future stability in families of the nation unfortunately, in Nigeria today while time and money are being spent on curriculum work and school environment, surprisingly, time and attention are paid to the crucial issues of sex education. Sex education is a comprehensive and systematic development program extending from infancy to maturity .it is planned and directed to produce social and moral desirable sexual attitudes practices and personal behaviour.

Sex problems have a very devastating effect on the individual in our society. Some people have wrong ideals about sex education. This is not surprising, considering the fact that many old people have their respective viewpoint about life. With the greater freedom of discussion of sex in our society and the earlier maturity of children today, one would not consider the introduction of sex education to our teenagers too early. The introduction of proper sex education to our youths will reduce many of the societal problems now facing us.

The bringing together of boys and girls into the same schools creates problems of physical contact emotional involvement which culminate in arousing sexuality. A majority of Nigerian parents and teachers believe that sex education of their children is the parent’s responsibility while some others would welcome its introduction into the school curriculum. This lead to the question, what are the students views towards it introduction into school curriculum?

Simply put, sex education is that dealing with the processes and problems of reproductions designed to provide the individual with understanding and control of their sex impulses and behaviour. It also deals with the principles of both individual and groups problems stemming from the biological fact that there are two basic types of human beings-males and females. The need of teaching sex education in Ezza-South Development Centre cannot be overemphasized.

This is because of the influx of people from different ethnic groups into the locality. Ezza-South Development Centre has not only increased in population but also in sizes. The need to actualize these sexual feelings became evidence when the students are among themselves. But the forceful preventives warning of the parents only serve temporary chock on sexual tendencies amongst these youth.

With these children sent to secondary schools and no thorough knowledge of sex life, a lot of problems easily come into play as the student’s jumps into their came of uncontrolled emotion. As a place for the dissemination of knowledge, secondary schools become the local point fort the introduction of sex education, since present generation involve themselves in promiscuity and corruption, there is the need for them to be taught what sexual relationship is. With this, a lot of changes will occur in the life of the students, parents and the community at large.

According to Calderome (1972) the world War 11 marked the liberalization of many attitudes about sex as well as the beginning of changes in behaviour leading individuals all over the world to advocate for ‘telling the truth’ to children. The child study association of America in the 1920s led the way towards an open approach to all topics including sex education. Though more emphasis was placed on reproductive education, since then, the concept has enlarged considering today sex education encompasses a wide range of biological, sociological and psychological knowledge.

Today there is the awareness of the need for sex education in schools, Churches and other institutions of the growing concerns over teenage pregnancies, abortions, veneral disease, increased promiscuity, widespread martial and sexual difficulties. Sources of initiatives are the sex information and education council of the united state (SIECUS), which was founded in 1963, professional groups and all levels, while Calder-Wood D.D and Sloan (1982) added the Japanses Association of Sex education.

 More so, the knowledge of sex education will reduce the rate of casually, which would have resulted from illegal procurement of abortion by quacks doctors or nurses. Presently sex education programmes have been integrated into several secondary school education programme.

Statement of Problems

Ignorance of sex and its associated problems is prevalent in and among secondary schools students. The life of students are shattered with the passing of incorrect information among themselves, they get misled by others. Today the problems resulting from the lack of sex education to our youth are numerous. They are unwanted pregnancies, increase abortion, high incidence of sexually transmitted diseases and high rates of sexual promiscuity.

All these have led to inability to concentrate, poor school performance, deterioration of mental health of students, high rate of school drop outs, increase in illiteracy and over population. Consequently, the educational opportunity of Nigeria youth is greatly affected and this posses a great loss to the society. Religious bodies view sex education as premature, dangerous and likely to lead to sexual promiscuity.

To behavioural scientists, the introduction of sex education is proper. However, despite the increasing sexual problems, parents and schools are still not providing teenagers with proper knowledge of sex. Young people regard sex as fun rather than what is really is. They take to themselves as a teacher (which is not good enough) and have guided by mythologies and misconceptions about sex.

Many administrations have been greatly worried about the appropriate level of which sex education can be introduced, who should teach sex education, what to teach and what not to. It should however, be realized that sex education is properly given does not arouse morbid curiosity but dose exactly the opposite to young people. Whereas, the misinformation, secret, misinterpretation and fables about sex functions leads to dangerous consequences. Therefore, information about sex education gives an insight to people understanding of sex functions.

It was Liewely-Jones Derek (1978) who noted that adults complain about the irresponsibility of teenagers about their lack of respect, about their morals and promiscuity, yet it is difficult to ask teenagers to develop responsibility when adults seen to be rejecting it and when society seems to be fragmenting it is particularly difficult to ask young people to maintain sexual responsibility. He needs to be alert to talk to someone close to him and not have to talk to her parents as strangers. It parents are unable to answer her questions regarding social, moral and sexual attitudes, then they have failed as parents and should not blame their children for failing. As children grow older, their interest in sex increases.
