    Sex Education in the Elementary (Grade 4-6): Proper or Improper?
    according to http://ourhappyschool.com/debate,SEX EDUCATION is one of the most controversial issues today in the country. The issue inquires whether such kind of education would be a suitable solution to some recent problems or become a black torch which would bring curse and immorality to our society particularly to the youth. Sex education, which is sometimes called sexuality education or sex and relationships education, is teaching and learning information about sex, sexual identity, relationships, and intimacy.

    for me sex education for grade school students is improper because, those young student has a limited level of thinking only.. they has a childish mind so that they could not understand about that subject matter.
