CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   Background to the study

In brief, sex education which is sometimes called “sexuality education or relationship education is the process of acquiring information and forming attitude and beliefs about sex, sexual identity, relationship and intimacy. Sex education is also about developing young people’s skills so that they make informal choices about their behaviour, and feel confident and competent about acting on these choices.

Moreover, it is widely accepted that people have a right to sex education. This is because it is a means by which they are helped to protect themselves against abuse, exploitation, unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted disease.

 

Indeed, providing an effective sex education helps to meet young people’s rights to information about matters that affect them, their right to have their needs and help them enjoy their sexuality and the relationships that they form (Kem and Ward, 2023).

In addition, Akerele (2014) noted that comprehensive sex education curricular has been endorsed by various governmental agencies, educational organizations and teenage advocacy groups as the most effective educational method for reducing teenage pregnancy and help prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among students.

 

NEED FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF SEXUALITY EDUCATION IN JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Numerous surveys have suggested increased sexual experimentation by increasing numbers of teenagers at younger ages each year often, the outcome of this behaviour can have adverse consequences such as unplanned pregnancy and sexually acquired infection.

Basaic (2023) added that sex education that works also help equip young people with the skills to be able to differentiate between accurate and inaccurate information and to discuss a range of moral and social issues and perspectives on sex and sexuality, including different cultural attitudes and sensitive issues like sexuality abortion and contraception.

Furthermore, Akerele (2014) wrote that sex problem have had a very devastating affection individual in our society. Some people have wrong idea about sex education. This is not surprising considering the fact that many old people have their respective point of view about life.

 

In a society where boys and girls are admitted into the same school creates problem of physical problem and emotional involvement, which eventually results in arousing sexuality. This anxiety created in them makes them jump into this game of incontrollable emotions (Afift, 2018).

With the greater freedom of discussion of sex education in our society and the early maturity of children today, one would consider the introduction of sex education to our teenagers too early, the introduction of proper sex education to our youth or teenagers reduce many of the society problems that are facing us. The need for the introduction of sexuality education in junior secondary schools.

Correct and relevant information should be given to teenagers about the changes and development they observe in their bodies during the period of maturity. The girls develop breast and pelvic bone broaden etc. These starts about the age of twelve years (12) while the boys sexual organs mature, their chest widens and their larynx enlarges. This period in teenagers is very crucial in the life of an individual and many frustrations may occur during this stage such as school dropout, sexual immorality, juvenile delinquencies to mention but a few, (Christopher, 2018). Therefore, it is on this note that the researcher attempts a justification for the conclusion of sexuality education in junior secondary school in Uruan local government area.

 

1.2   Statement of the problem

The study intends to emphasize the need for the introduction of sex education into junior secondary schools and also to investigate, if sex education has positive or negative effect on students. Moreover, ignorance sex and its problem is prevalent among junior secondary school students in Uruan local government area.

The lives of students are shattered with the passing of incorrect information among themselves, they get misled by others. Young people regard sex education as a fun rather than what it really is. They see it as a person and private affairs of the participant which is not really about sex education.

 

The problem resulting from the lack of sex education in our youths is numerous. They are unwanted pregnancies, increase in abortion, incoherence of sexual transmitted disease and high rate of sexually promiscuity.  All these have led to inability to concentrate, poor school performance, rate of school dropout, increase in illiteracy and over population.

Consequently, the educational opportunity of Nigerian youth is greatly affected and these posses a great lost on the society. To behavioural scientists, the introduction of sex education is proper despite the increasing sexual problems, parents and schools are still not providing teenagers with proper knowledge of sex education.

However, many administrations have been greatly worried about the appropriate level at which sec education can be introduced. Who should teach sex education, what to teach and who to teach? It should however be realized that sex education is properly given does not arouse curiosity but exactly the opposite to young people. The misinformation secrete misinterpretation and tables about sex functions lead to dangerous consequences, therefore, information about sex education teaches and give insight  understanding of sex functions.
