Sex education: The teacher's discourses about the childhood, the sexuality and the relation between the children and the media.
This study focuses on the teacher’s discourses about the relation between the children and the media, concerning sex education and widely the childhood. The teachers’ input reflect the anxieties and the dominant discourses that exist around these issues. The study begins with the critical discussion of the available literature concerning the potential impact of media and the “moral panics”, their role in sex education and the children’s use of sexual material. Moreover, the study analyses the social construction of childhood and sexuality. Given the lack of explicit and official protocol for the sex education in Greece and due the fact that the young people are familiar with all the material provided by the New Media and their part as an informal education, this project aims to point out the factors that reinforce these gaps. In addition, considering that there is an absence of adequate number of research studies focused on reflections of teachers about this topic, the project concludes through Thematic Analysis and Discourse Analysis of 12 semi-structured interviews with teachers. This study focuses on the way the adults and specifically teachers contextualize the children’s relation with media, their sexuality, the sex education, the use of sexual material and the childhood. Through the data analysis, the research study aims to invoke the social, cultural and moral discourses of teachers’ inputs.
