History of school-based sexuality education and its effects in Japan

A/Professor Chie Nakazawa

The purpose of this study is to overview school-based sexuality education in Japan and figure out its characteristics and examine the effects of sexuality education in terms of contraception and the gender-related attitudes among adolescents.
1) A Nationwide questionnaire survey conducted every six years since 1974.
2) Complementary surveys, which are the classroom observations and interviews to teachers and practitioners in 2005 and a questionnaire survey to university students in 2008
Results:
1) School-based sexuality education in Japan has been expanding during three decades in terms of the educational contents. It is mostly in the context of Health education, STI prevention and/or moral education. It means there is little gender perspective.
