Public school students in upper grades will get sex education

The Consejo Superior de Educación has approved a series of units on sexuality for all students in seventh, eighth and ninth grade.

The program will begin in the 2013 school year. The units
cover interpersonal relations, culture, power, reproductive health, human rights and other fundamentals.

The units will take up an hour a week during class time, said Leonardo Garnier, the minister of Educación Pública. He said the units were set up because members of the public have been demanding them.
