CREATIVE AND LATERAL THINKING

LACK OF SEX
EDUCTAION IN
SCHOOLS ( RURAL
AREAS)
ASSIGNMENT 2

M
MEETA KHANNA
 The issue that I have taken is the lack of sex
education in schools specially the rural class
and how as creative thinkers we can over come
this situation.
 Here are a few stats , that made me consider
to work on the above problems as this one of
the major links to many other charted
problems

If this was the entire Indian population than only


about 10% of the population had access to sex
education , through various environmental factors
like , school , peers , parents etc
If we were to look at the stats , these are the stats for
unprotected sex or kids aged between 15-18 have their
first sexual intercourse without any basic sexual
education which leads to various other issues like being
unaware of molestation , rape without even knowing
about it etc.
So to Over come this , The two Later and creative skills
that I have taken are ;

SIX THINKING HATS


Sex ed can be awkward. You’re discussing uncomfortable
topics, looking at scary, anatomical photos, all while at
your peek hormonal/ awkward high school age. It’s a
recipe for immature and inappropriate jokes. For tuning
out your teacher. For disaster.
 So the Idea proposed is that rather than having the
awkward sex ed , class based talks we turn the
tables around and make it a self learning through
playing games just like how a kid learns gaming
faster than their math formulas
 Developing Apps for the privileged class that are
game based or reward based to inculcate sexual
knowledge not just about intercourse but also about
their bodies
Etc.

WHITE HAT
The White Hat calls for information known or needed.
"The facts, just the facts."
 So when we put the white hat , we are bound to look
at the facts
The importance of delivery of sex education in a timely
fashion to this significant demographic is emphasized by
current statistics that show that almost one in every fifth
person on the globe is an adolescent.
[1] They comprise 18% (1.2 billion) of world's population
in 2009, with 88% living in developing countries. India
has the largest adolescent population (243 million with
more than 50% of the adolescent population living in
urban areas). These figures indicate the importance of
specifically addressing the healthcare needs of this
considerable demographic, particularly for the developing
countries such as India.
[2] Recent literature suggests that at this time they are
highly likely to experiment and engage in the types of
risky behaviors that have the potential to influence the
quality of health and probability of survival in both
short- and long-term over their lifetime. Therefore,
meeting the needs of such a vulnerable group and
overcoming existing shortcomings in the delivery of
tailored primary preventative measures would
significantly improve the survival and general health
conditions, nutritional status, and sexual and
reproductive health of the future Indian adult
population.
[3] This encompasses issues such as early pregnancy,
unsafe abortions, STIs including HIV, and sexual abuse
and violence.
[4] The sexual and reproductive health needs of
adolescents[7,8,9,10] in India are currently overlooked or
are not understood by the Indian healthcare system. This
could be owing to the lack of knowledge of scientific
evidence along with the gross unpreparedness of the
public health system. Healthcare professionals often lack
the knowledge themselves that impacts upon imparting
information to the adolescent population who seek it.
Often comprehensive sexual histories are not taken, and
sexual health is not openly discussed due to cultural and
traditional norms in society. Incorrect information has
the potential to create misunderstanding in the youth
making them less likely to adopt healthy practices and
attitudes toward sex enabling them to maintain lifelong
sexual health.
Now we get to know the basic factual and how the issue
is categorized into a social , mental and health issue
YELLOW HAT ;
The Yellow Hat symbolizes brightness and optimism.
Under this hat you explore the positives and probe for
value and benefit.
 Now we put Our Yellow Hat on and think about all
the positive outcomes that can come out of this , So
if we are able to put everything in order , we as a
country can reduce cases of unprotected sex ,
population issues , unwanted pregnancy ,
HIV/STD’s etc.

BLACK HAT :
The Black Hat is judgment - the devil's advocate or why
something may not work. Spot the difficulties and
dangers; where things might go wrong. Probably the most
powerful and useful of the Hats but a problem if
overused.
Now when we look at the problems that can arise and
how it will not cover up the entire aspect that we are
trying to work on we see that :
 Public discussion of topics of a sexual nature are
widely considered as taboo in the Indian society,
therefore acting as a barrier to delivery of adequate
and effective sexual education to Indian adolescents.
Sex education at school level has attracted strong
objections and apprehension from all areas of the
society, including parents, teachers, and politicians,
with its provision banned in six states which include
Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh,
Chhattisgarh, and Karnataka. Legislators contend
that it corrupts the youth and offends “Indian
values,” leading to promiscuity, experimentation,
and irresponsible sexual behavior. Some opponents
argue that sex education has no place in a country
such as India with its rich cultural traditions and
ethos. These views lie at the heart of the traditional
Indian psyche and will need to be approached
tentatively with psychological insight when
challenged only then
 Sex being such a taboo also makes the kids
uncomfortable , they refuse to get serious about it
and keep on laughing about anything and everything
that has the word sex in it , playing games and
making apps may just turn the tables around and
create more stupid perceptions about the issue itself
 The app may not be able to reach the rural areas as
it will require the use of phones and internet so we
need to focus on something that will help us to
reach the rural sections of the society

red hat
The Red Hat signifies feelings, hunches and intuition.
When using this hat you can express emotions and
feelings and share fears, likes, dislikes, loves, and hates.
 So now when we put on the red hat , we can focus
on how we feel about the issue , the solutions , so
when I think about lack of sex ed. I feel very sad for
us a society , as we are

green hat
The Green Hat focuses on creativity; the possibilities,
alternatives, and new ideas. It's an opportunity to
express new concepts and new perceptions.

blue hat
The Blue Hat is used to manage the thinking process. It's
the control mechanism that ensures the Six Thinking
Hats guidelines are observed.
