(Lanka-e-news -26.Jan.2017, 10.40AM) Venereal diseases are fast spreading currently among children (male and female) attending schools , the Education Academic Service Association has revealed.
Based on the survey conducted by the Association, 4 % of the children above the age of 13 years have fallen into this category , the secretary of the Association, Ajith K. Thilakaratne disclosed in a communiqué issued by the Association.
The backwardness shown when youths (male and female) of the new generation are taught sex education in the classes in schools , has led to many children seeking to learn through friends of their age by experimenting , the association points out.
The communiqué states , these children have got accustomed to watching offensive and obscene programs via the internet , and that there are also reports of venereal diseases infected children from the villages and the outskirts of the cities ( Sri Lanka is leading over the past several years when it relates to browsing of obscene websites).
In the circumstances , the sex education that is included in the syllabus shall be compulsorily taught , and teachers without shying away from it must come forward , the secretary to the Association insisted. Since Genital warts , Herpes , Gonorrhea and the like have been detected among school children on many occasions , the education ministry should focus serious attention on this , the Education Academic Service Association pinpointed.
