The quality of sex education in Swedish elementary schools is poor. It is unclear how sex education is presented in elementary schools with a special education profile. The purpose of this study is to examine the reasoning concerning the sex education content and methods of one group of educators, employed in a special education elementary school in Northern Sweden. The empirical data for the study was collected by separate qualitative interviews. Two of the four educators interviewed believe that sex education is conducted while the other two believe it is not. The most common method for conducting sex education in this particular school is by spontaneous dialogs from questions posed by students. Therefore the content of sex education is based on students’ questions. The two educators who believe that sex education is conducted justify their reasoning by the existing government regulation documents for elementary schools with special education profile. Meanwhile, the two educators who argued that sex education is not conducted, state that it is not possible to justify by any government regulation document.
