2016 - ‘It is not all about sex’: Young people’s views about sexuality and relationships education


In an era where information about sex and sexuality is pervasive on the internet, young people say sexuality education classes at school need to be about much more than just sex. This report summarises the views of more than 2000 students, aged between 13 and 16 years, from 31 high schools in South Australia and Victoria. The research found that while students counted on sex education classes in schools as an important source of information, they wanted more from the classes than just a biology lesson. The report also examines several significant differences between the two states and in terms of gender.
