The article offers the author's insights regarding the sex education curriculum of the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. She discusses the competence among teachers to teach students with information towards sex, its moral or ethical values. She contends that the ministry's "Inclusive Sexuality Education" booklet provides permissive philosophy that disturbs many parents and neglects politicized topics. She notes that sex education makes young students distracted and embarrassed.
