The Modes of Delivery of Sex Education Curriculum in Rural Secondary Schools in Makueni County

Eric Mutua Muli


Abstract: This study investigated the modes of delivery of sex education in rural secondary schools in Kisau division of Makueni County. A critique of the related review of literature was done in which gaps were developed which this study has attempted to fill. The objectives of this study were to examine the attitudes of students, teachers and parents towards sex education, the preparedness of the teachers and institutions in delivery of sex education and to assess the methods used in the delivery of the sex education. A descriptive survey design was used for the study and a sample of 72 student respondents, (10) ten teachers, (5) five head teachers, (10) parents from the selected schools and key informants in the division who included N. G. O Official, Education Officer and Health Official took part in the study. Data was collected using questionnaires for the students, interview guides for teachers, head teachers, parents and key informants and observation guides. Reviews of existing records and reports on sex education in secondary schools were also done. Schools offered sex education to the students in the area of study. The observations revealed that sex education is taught by the teachers but inclusive in some subjects at secondary schools. Students indicated that they were free to discuss about sex with their teachers. Parents felt uneasy with issues on sex education but admitted that they at times discussed with their children about sex education. Teachers on the other hand also admitted that some topics are sensitive when discussed in class and times have discretion whether or not to teach life skills which may not be examinable. Not all schools have enough materials on sex education. Various methods were used in sex education and the least used method is lecture method. The study recommended that teacher training institutions be focused on latest information when training teachers. There is need for school administration to outsource for funds to manage sex education. More time needs to be created and more literature should be provided on sex education so as to keep students informed.
