From autumn, students in upper secondary schools and upper secondary schools in Oslo will learn about sexuality, border setting and harassment.
– We want this to contribute to creating stronger awareness and dialogue on gender, gender roles, body, sexuality and identity, as well as harassment, violence and abuse, says City Council for Growth and Knowledge Inga Marte Thorkildsen (SV) to Aftenposten.
The new teaching is based on input from the students and will be aimed at students in the 9th grade in the secondary school and the 1st grade in high school.
– We have listened to their feedback that sexual education today is a lot about the physical. The youth think it is so important to learn more about setting their own limits, says Thorkildsen to the newspaper.
There are health nurses at the school as well as professionals from the foundation “Sex and society” who will participate in the new teaching program.
The teaching will consist of at least three school hours and will be tested at some schools this spring, before it is launched at all Oslo schools in the fall.
