Indian Schools to Teach About Birds, Bees and HIV

March 26, 2007

The Council of Boards of Education of India, which sets the teaching curriculum for the country's schools, will debut a sex education course starting next year, an official told the Times of India newspaper. "The curriculum will be introduced in phases from the next academic year," D.V. Sharma said. Seventeen of the country's 29 states have adopted the course, but in some states the curriculum has met resistance from political and religious groups. Sharma said the government will pursue the program's implementation in states where there is resistance. The human reproductive system, menstruation, HIV/AIDS, and condom use are some of the topics included in the recommended lessons.
