Biology Students? Perception of Sexuality Education in Secondary Schools

Martha Ijok Adibe Njoku, Appollus Ebenezer Josiah

The study of biology has a vital role to play in the understanding of sexuality education in schools. Despite its importance in shaping the opinion of youths and adolescents, sexuality education has not received commensurate attention in our homes and schools. Thus, the study was aimed at identifying the perspectives of the adolescent students in the senior secondary schools about sexuality education and issues that affect their perspectives. It also sought to identify in the opinion of the adolescent senior secondary students, where it is best to have sexuality education. It was aimed at establishing the mean perception of secondary school biology students towards sexuality education and the influence of gender on their perception. Stratified random sampling was used in selecting the schools while purposive and proportional sampling were used in selecting a total number of 165 respondents. A well-structured questionnaire was administered on the respondents using their classroom teachers. Data collected were analyzed using sample means, standard deviation, percentages and Analysis of variance tests (ANOVA). Most of the students, agreed with most of the issues raised about their perception towards sexuality education. Although a slightly higher number of females had sexuality education than the males, the difference was not statistically significant (p<0.05). Most of the students, 43.6 % believed that school, rather than home and other places, was the best place to imbibe sexuality education. A few recommendations were suggested.
