Poor Grade for Sex Education

According to the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU), sex education in this country is not up to standard.

RFSU claims that almost none of the teachers teaching the subject have themselves received proper training. The organization’s Secretary General Åsa Regnér says proper training is a key issue, especially since the amount of sexually transmitted diseases is on the rise among young people in Sweden.

Regnér says that sex education has been obligatory in Sweden for the last 15 years but that the quality of the classes ranges greatly depending on the school. According to RFSU only 6 percent of those teaching sex education have been properly trained, and Régner says it is time that teachers receive proper education in the subject.
