The study is a rather bold initiative on the part of Fr. Albert Alejo and his team, considering that it comes in the wake of divisive debates even among Catholic schools on the appropriateness and morality of teaching sexuality education in schools. They went to the parents, teachers and staff of the participating Catholic schools and facilitated an open and healthy discussion on various issues regarding reproductive health and sexuality education. And more importantly, the study team listened to what they were saying and reflected them in their recommendations.
