Upper secondary school  girls experience of sex education in schools : a qualitative study (English)
Abstract [en]

Sex education in school has a large responsibility of giving the younger generation a nuanced and contemporary education. Sex education has changed through the years and is governed by the Education Act and the curriculum. The purpose of this study was to examine how high school girls describe their experience of the sex education given in school. A qualitative method was used and interviews with year 3 students from upper secondary school were done in order to collect data. A qualitative content analysis was used for the analysis. The results show that the students considered their sex education often as inadequate and culminated in four categories: (1) confusion, (2) the girls’ experience of the sex education in school, (3) how they want the education to be like and (4) information sources about sex and cohabitation. The theme that emerged from the analysis was ”the school does not take responsibility”.
