More on sexual education in our schools

From Afternoons, 1:18 pm on 8 August 2018

Yesterday we discussed the concern from teachers and researchers about a sexual health education programme, Mates and Dates, being rolled out across the country, costing $18 million. 

Since then we've heard from an organisation called Korowai Tumanako. It's a sexual violence prevention service that has worked with programmes like Mates and Dates over the last decade. Its directors believe there is value to specialist services and external educators. 

To tell us more about what they provide for students, and the reaction they've had from young people, is co-director of Korowai Tumanako, Russell Smith.
