Summary/Abstract: For modern liberal democracies, it is characterized by disputes about the ways in which educational practices relating to sexuality are implemented. In the context of the subject matter of this article, it is possible to consider the appropriateness of the term “sex” as a relevant term, and what are the meanings given to the terminology adopted for the practice of knowledge transfer, skills development and attitudes relating to sexuality. As an excuse for these analyzes, the new curriculum of the subject “Education for the Family” for students and pupils of grades 4–8 in the new textbook: [student] can exchange the differences between education and sexual education and [the student] Characterize and evaluate various references to sexuality: permissive, relative, and normative. I have accepted that the need to familiarize students and pupils with the meanings of sexual education and sexual education is a result of the desire to set clear boundaries between certain valued educational practices related to sexuality. Such an approach allows for the initial distinction of two different perspectives. In this text, they will be confronted with a discursive approach to sexual education, and with it the multiplicity and diversity of approaches constructed in different cultural contexts.
