Public exhibition of controversial and explicit sex and drugs classroom resources recommended for use by the Scottish Executive
Councillors, headteachers and members of the public in Stirling and Clackmannanshire will be able to see the controversial sex and drugs education materials banned from schools by three Councils including North Lanarkshire but still recommended by the Scottish Executive.
The controversial materials feature lessons and role playing exercises which are sexually explicit, dealing with topics such as group sex, bondage and anal sex. For homework children are asked to buy condoms from a chemist.
The drugs lessons tell teachers not to adopt an anti-drugs approach and include games where children pretend to be drug dealers. Children are told that a few goes on crack is not necessarily addictive and that ‘Most young people who use drugs come to little harm’. They are also reminded that inhaling solvents is perfectly legal.
Three local councils have banned all or some of the Executive-backed resources after listening to concerns from parents and others.
