Практики работы школьных учителей с темами, касающимися сексуального образования

Крайнова П. О., Обухов А. С.

The necessity and acceptability of sex education has remained a controversial issue for many years and does not have a unified solution and a right standard even in  those countries, where sex education is  a  part of  the  compulsory school curriculum. Even in the absence of special training and fixed standards teachers of  some school subjects face issues related to  sex education in their professional practice almost every day. This study examines current discussion strategies on topics related to sexual education at school lessons in Russia, as well as tactics used when answering questions related to such topics, in case teachers witness situations with such implications. The paper has a  high-quality design and is  based on  data from in-depth interviews with 23 teachers from 7 regions of the European part of Russia. The sample includes teachers of Biology, Literature, Social Studies and Physical Education who frequently encounter issues of sex education in their subject area.
