Many primary school teachers feel "uncomfortable" about tackling issues such as homosexuality and contraception in the classroom, a study has revealed.
Abertay University found that some had "tinkered" with the sex education programme to lessen embarrassment.
Well, the correct response here would be to inform these teachers that they were hired to do a job and, if they don't do it, they will be sacked without references. Seems perfectly fucking simple to me.
"Even when teachers claim to be comfortable teaching sex and relationship education, this is often only after tinkering with the programme."
"Other subjects also caused some concern, particularly homosexuality and contraception, although a number of teachers also cited potential questions about oral sex," it added.
To be fair, I don't think that it is necessarily the teachers' place to instruct primary school children in the best way to suck a cock or flick that bean, but if they have been told to do so... well... they should fucking well do it. However, I am not so concerned with oral sex but this...
It also found awareness of sexually transmitted infections was the least covered topic in the curriculum, with 57% of primary schools not teaching about STIs.
What the fuck? So, pupils are instructed in cock-sucking (it's good for your public sector career, after all) but not in VDs? That's absolutely insane (quite apart from the fact that the organisms causing STIs are some of the most fascinating), and yet I am utterly unsurprised.
Look, it's simple: teach what you are told to, or you get sacked. How difficult can this be?
