Reform the Sex Education Curriculum in Ireland
Reform the secondary school Relationships and Sexuality curriculum to be inclusive of all genders and sexualities, with a strong emphasis on consent as well as sexual health and pleasure. It must be an objective curriculum that is taught in all schools regardless of the school's ethos. Carry on the 2018 Objective Sex Education Bill which lapsed with the new Dáil.
Why is this important?
The current curriculum is falling short for students. There is little coverage on safe sex for non-heterosexual people, sexual consent for all ages or inclusivity for transgender and non-binary people. The repercussions of a poor sex education is harmful for all students.
