Pallam Raju Recommends Sex Education To be Introduced in School CurriculumCiting one of the recommendations of Verma Committee’s report, HRD Minister M M Pallam Raju, has said that the centre has already initialised discussion with states to introduce sex education in the school curriculum.

Raju was replying to a query on Justice J S Verma Panel’s recommendation for gender sensitisation through education. “We will work on it. States have own curriculum bodies. We will talk. Everybody realizes the importance of it,” he said.

With a juvenile named as accused in the recent sensational Delhi gang rape case, the Minister feels that sex education should be made an integral part of the school curriculum.

Justice Verma committee was set up to suggest ways to make rape laws stronger in the country after the incidence. The committee has also explicitly recommended that formal curriculum in schools must be drastically revamped and sex education be made an integral part of the curriculum.

Raju also said the consultations will be made with NCERT about the scope of the implementation of the subject. There are many sides to the proposal, like how community reacts to such a move and what age the students are ready have also to be looked into to implement the Verma panel recommendation.

He also said that the government has decided to set up on a pilot basis 200 community colleges within the existing colleges and polytechnics from the coming academic session.

He said these colleges will act as a potent tool for implementation of the National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF) notified last year.
