Experts oppose ACC sex consent classes

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 7 August 2018

Sexual health education experts are calling ACC's consent classes an $18 million waste of money. 

ACC decided to roll out its controversial Mates and Dates programme nationally, despite huge opposition from teachers, researchers, and experts who say it doesn't align with the New Zealand curriculum 

Critics are particularly unhappy so much is being spent on lessons provided by outsiders, rather than teachers. 

To tell us a bit more about the objections, we're joined by Associate Professor Katie Fitzpatrick from the University of Auckland.
