Jenni will be finding out about the physical and mental changes which take place as children mature into adults – and hearing how these developments create some of the stereotypical teenage behaviour. Including drama: Restless. BBC – BBC Radio 4 Programmes – Woman’s Hour, 15/04/2009 Ref, DVD ‘The Long Childhood’ Bronowski – obviously, science has come a long way, but Bronowski has the art and the emotion, to show the way, or to bring some light; on those particularly perilous years. http://www.bbcshop.com/History/Ascent-Of-Man-DVD/invt/bbcdvd1608
Compulsory Sex Education – Reaction from the young and old (parents) religious fundamentalists who are fighting it on religious grounds – Biblical or Koranic http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8020480.stm showing "tribal stereotypical behaviour" (savage science, or, that of – anthropological anomy) in their (children and parental) objections, causing stress and some division in our society through the maintaining of sexual ignorance: the withholding of ‘knowledge’ to children, young people, and the vulnerable, for unforgivable and sometimes wicked – ‘tribal honour’ behavior, superioress and superstitious – ambition/gain. http://www.channel4.com/learning/microsites/L/lifestuff/content/up_close/letstalksex/index.html ‘Sex Education is a Children’s Right’ http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2009/apr/28/sex-education-faith-schools The real ‘hosts’ of wickedness and ignorance – If we know that sex and relationships education of an objective sort improves young people’s health and well-being (and we do) and if we accept that it is the right of the child to receive information of all sorts (which it is) and if we go on to conclude that the responsibility of society is therefore to ensure that all our children receive this entitlement, then why allow state-funded religious schools to do something different? Why in particular, as has been announced today, should the religious character of a school (which may or may not be shared by the school’s pupils or their parents) be allowed to skew the sex and relationships education that children receive?
