Mixed reaction from some members of the public on the statement by Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs, Shamfa Cudjoe that sex education should be taught in schools.

President of the Trinidad and Tobago Council of Evangelical Churches, Reverend Desmond Austin, says because of the sensitive nature of the issue, it should be left in the hands of parents.

However, during the State of the Nation Programme on Power 102.1FM on Thursday afternoon one caller said students are already exposed to information on sex but the concept is to get them to know that there are consequences to their actions.

Another caller focused on the importance of getting sex education into the school system in an organized way due to the seriousness of the time that we live in.

And one caller claimed that some parents themselves are in need of sex education, thus imparting it to their children can be challenge.
