The Government has told faith schools to follow new sex education guidelines.

Principles of Islam go against the teaching of sex education making it a controversial topic for some of the Preston’s Muslims.

Traditionally Islamic teachings in the mosque conflict with the teaching of sex education in schools. But there is pressure on young Muslims in today’s society that increasingly exposes them to sex and the issues surrounding it.

The question is should sex education play a more prominent role within their education and culture?

In the following three blogs I will look at the issues surrounding this subject.

In my first post the history of faith schools will be looked at as well as what people involved in these schools in Preston think about sex education. https://swyllie87.wordpress.com/?p=16&preview=true

In the next blog I will cover Muslim life and focus on Preston’s Islamic community. Follow this link to find out more about their culture.


In the third section I will look at sex education in Lancashire. Click on the link to find out about different opinions on young Muslims receiving sex education in school.<https://swyllie87.wordpress.com/2009/01/22/elyas-desai-video-2/?preview=true&preview_id=43&preview_nonce=ec2f4935e8
