National Association of Governing Bodies’s Matakanye Matakanye raises concerns on the comprehensive sex education programme.
School Governing Bodies are not happy about the new sex education programme.
The Department of Basic Education has rolled out a comprehensive sex education programme targeted at Grade 4 to 12 pupils in South African schools.
The programme is aimed at teaching pupils about healthy lifestyles and sexual education.
Bongani Bingwa speaks to National Association of Governing Bodies’ general secretary Matakanye Matakanye on the matter.
Matakanye says the government needs to consult parents about these programmes before implementation.
As parents and a society, we feel that we haven’t been consulted and all these ideas have just been imposed on us.
