Update 2: Full text of what was shared at the media conference on the revised MOE sexuality program.
Update 1: MOE has replied to this virgin matter on their Facebook page and comments are now closed for this post.
According to this news report, the Ministry of Education (MOE) will revise its sexuality education programme:
"There will be a core of at least 10 specially-selected teachers in each school to teach sexuality education and they must be comfortable teaching the subject and have rapport with students.
More importantly, they must practise mainstream values that are aligned with MOE.
These include the family as a basic unit of society and abstinence as the best option to encourage youths to defer sex until marriage."
So the teachers who teach this course must practise abstinence before marriage too? Would the basic requirement be virginity? Eunuchs or married teachers only?
And how would the hiring manager know if the teacher meets the requirements? How would you check on the teacher's lifestyle? Look at their Facebook to see if they have many dates and if they attend wild parties? Hymen inspections?
@claudia_jng asked, "So do they change teachers after they lose their virginity? And shame them during morning assembly?"
In the light of this new requirement, maybe the other subjects will also need revamping:
1. Science teachers must win Nobel Prize at least once in their lives.
2. PE teachers must be former Olympics champions.
3. History teachers need to have lived
in the past in the ancient past.
4. English teachers MUST be English from England only too.
Maybe there will be a new MOE application form for sex education teachers:
❒ Not sure
(Applicants, please tick where appropriate.)
I can imagine the classroom situation soon:
Student: "Cher! Does sex feel good?"
Sex Education Teacher: "I am told it does. I will let you know when I am married."
Student: "Cher! How to wear condom ah?"
Sex Education Teacher: "Wait, I check the book again."
