Sex Ed Comic Controversy
The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) claims that comic books are being used to teach sex education in the Philippines. The DepEd clarified that it is not distributing illustrated comics on sex education in public high schools contrary to the claims.
Education Secretary Mona Valisno said the comic books shown on television by members of the CBCP was never a part of their education modules saying they may have been obtained through other sources.
This controversy among others is forcing the DepEd to be transparent and upload the education modules online allowing the public to judge.
