THE TIMES OF INDIA
MUMBAI: After much stormy debate on the introduction of sex education in schools, the state government has decided to make the subject compulsory in schools from Standard IX.

Education minister Vasant Purke, announcing this in the legislative council on Tuesday, said sex education would be introduced from the coming academic year.

Purke has other several plans up his sleeve. A few years ago, the Democratic Front government had invited tremendous flak for announcing board exams for Standard Four children and had to drop the idea.

However, Purke on Tuesday announced that board exams were being planned for Standard Seven. The minister also said that the government had plans to bring in a Right to Education bill. This means that every child will have a right to education, and parents who do not send their wards to school could face punishment under the law.

During the debate in the council, the government also admitted that the quality of education was low in rural areas.

Purke announced the introduction of an education audit, saying this would check the quality of education. He also said that agricultural science would be introduced in the school syllabus.
