Srinagar: The core committee members of National Child Development Council during their recent meeting have hailed the government’s decision to introduce sex education in schools, and called it a welcome step.

The members said that it is mandatory to implement sex education in schools as it creates awareness among the students about several relevant things.

As per experts, Sex education is essential in schools, “because it informs students about reproductive health, related organs, adolescence, and sexually transmitted diseases.”
