The state of sex education in schools

Premier Christian Newscast

Jun 12 2023 • 53 mins

Graphic lessons on oral sex, how to choke your partner safely, and the existence of 72 different genders. According to the Christian MP Miriam Cates, these are some of the things appearing in sex education classes up and down the country. According to her campaign, a radical progressive ideology has infiltrated sex and relationships education. In response to her lobbying, the prime minister said he would bring forward a review into sex education in schools, to ensure they are not teaching quote inappropriate or contested content. But is this really something to be worried about? What are children actually being taught about sex, gender and identity at school? Should Christian parents be joining any campaigns to supposedly de-wokify education, or is this all just a right-wing culture war talking point? Guests this week: - Nick Batt, youth and families worker at Christ Church Bromley - Julie Maxwell, community paediatrician and deputy director of Lovewise - Lizzie Harewood, executive officer of the Association of Christian Teachers
