Mayors Betham Dela Cruz and Valente Yap of Amlan and Bindoy, respectively maintain that sex education for kindergarten and elementary pupils is untimely.
Dela Cruz sides with the Roman Catholic Church's stand that sex education at the early formative years of pupils might pose more harm than good and promote the impression that sex is acceptable if it is practiced right.
On the other hand, Yap
insists that values formation not sex education should be given priority in the elementary curriculum.
believes that sex education should begin in the high school level and must include the parents of the students so they would know how to handle such delicate a topic.
deplores the prevalence of teenage pregnancy in the hinterland barangays of his
municipality and believes that sex education taught in the proper context, method and time will be the key to end this unpleasant phenomenon.
