After Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra has become the third state that is protesting against sex education.

In fact, no to sex education is the unanimous message from Maharashtra’s political parties to the Centre.

The state Education Department says that it will tell central board schools not to teach sex education in the state.

“We will tell the CBSE that it should no longer be part of the syllabus of the state government,” said Hasan Mushrif, Education Minister, Maharashtra.

The government’s reasoning for this is that the knowledge of sex will impact the impressionable minds of children.

The Union HRD Ministry had asked all states to include sex education in their curriculum for which teachers were being trained.

But with the backing of the state’s political parties, the government has decided to scrap the plan, and will also stop training teachers who were to teach sex education.
The CBSE’s efforts to introduce sex education in schools under its Adolescent Education Programme (AEP) has run into a wall in Maharasthra, where the state government has succumbed to demands from MLAs and declared that not only will it ban all books on sex education that are part of the CBSE school syllabus, it will also not introduce the subject in Std X at schools following the state syllabus.

The decision comes in response to a demand from both Opposition and ruling party MLAs, some of who believe sex education can corrupt young minds.
