High school students' experience of sexeducation : An interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

En god sex- och samlevnadsundervisning i skolan är central för att ha möjlighet att utveckla en god hälsa, vilken dock enligt tidigare forskning har visats vara av bristande kvalitet. Syftet med studien är att undersöka högstadieelevers upplevelse av sex- och samlevnadsundervisningen på deras skola, med fokus på pedagog ledda lektioner. Studiens metod var en kvalitativ intervjustudie, där sex högstadieelever intervjuades individuellt. Resultatet visade att eleverna upplevde att undervisningens innehåll inte tillgodosåg deras behov fullt ut, då det lades för stort fokus på risker och faktabaserad kunskap. Det som eleverna ville veta mer om var sådant som kunde kopplas till samlevnad samt gjorde eleverna mer delaktiga i undervisningen, vilket de i stort upplevde att de inte var. Eleverna värdesatte undervisning som relaterade till deras vardag och verklighet. Internet framkom vara den främsta informationskällan för att skaffa kunskaper om sex och samlevnad och beskrevs som den källa som i första hand användes. Eleverna menade även att relationer var betydelsefullt i lärande om sex och samlevnad. Studiens slutsatser tryckte på att eleverna ska vara centrerade och i fokus i undervisningen, för att tillgodose deras behov av kunskaper samt delaktighet. Då internet visades vara den främsta kunskapskällan av sex och samlevnad, bör skolan använda sig av elevernas vana av internet i undervisningen. Det finns även anledning för skolan att ha relationer i åtanke, mellan såväl pedagoger och elever som eleverna i klassen.

Abstract [en]

A good sex-education in school is crucial for having the possibility to develop a good health, which though has been shown to be lacking in quality. The aim of the study is to examine high school students’ experiences of sex-education in their school with a focus on teacher led lectures. The study method was a qualitative interview study, where six high school students were interviewed individually. The result showed that the students experienced that the content of the sex-education did not meet their needs to the fullest, because there was too much focus on risks and fact-based knowledge. What the students wanted to know more about was topics related to coexistence and also made them more participant, which in generally they felt like they were not. The students valued education that related to their daily life and reality. Internet showed to be the primary source of information to get knowledge about sex and coexistence and was described as the firstly used source. The students also meant that relations with others was crucial when learning about sex and coexistence. Conclusions of the study pressures the students to be centered and the actual focus of the education, to meet their needs of knowledge and participation. Internet showed to be the primary used source of information of sex and coexistence content the school therefore should make use of it and integrate use of Internet in the education process. There are also reasons for the school to have relations in mind, between educators and students as well as students in classes.
