SOCIETY AND SEXUAL EDUCATION: INFLUENCES OF POLITICAL-RELIGIOUS CONSERVATISM IN THE GUIDING DOCUMENTS OF BASIC EDUCATION IN BRAZIL.
Keywords:sexuality, PCN, BNCC, PNE, diversity
This work aimed to investigate the influence of conservatism on sexual education for children and adolescents in basic education schools in Brazil. It is noteworthy that there is no legislation that regulates the inclusion of sexual education in Brazilian schools, but there are guiding documents that govern teaching practices on this topic. However, these documents were affected by the conservative wave that hit the country in 2015, promoted by right-wing and evangelical conservative groups, which gained strength with the election of former President Jair Bolsonaro. The research identified the influence of conservatism on the topics of sexual freedom, sexually transmitted infections, and teenage pregnancy. A bibliographic analysis was carried out on official education documents, such as the National Common Curricular Base (BNCC), the National Education Plan (PNE), and the National Curriculum Parameters (PNC). The study allowed conclusions to be drawn from the moral perspectives highlighted in these documents, based on literature and documentary facts, and analyses that highlighted a setback in the national curriculum parameters, which deals with such an urgent and inherent issue to humanity, sexuality.
