Sex Education in Schools

Our next discussion is about sex education in schools so just a word of warning that it may not be suitable for little ears.

This morning we’re discussing how sex education should be delivered in our schools. That's because, some parents feel the current material is too explicit for young children while others feel it’s time we stopped the secrecy and shame and became more open.

Joining Ciara to discuss this is Rebecca McNamee from 'A Parents right', and the Dublin west People before profit TD Ruth Coppinger.
