CSE is not sex education
The South African Department of Education maintains that it has no intention of changing their course of action when it comes to the rolling out of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Schools, and there would be no opt out for parents who disagree with CSE. Heralded as a champion for CSE, the department's Dr Granville Whittle yet again rubbished claims that CSE seeks to teach pupils how to have sex. Whittle spoke at the recent launch of the Because We Can, youth- driven initiative in Cape Town where he vehemently urged the public to seek clarity on CSE. Jane Rabothata reports..
