Abstract: The present study examined the role of selected background and psychological variables, namely, religion, age, grade level, attitude of parents towards sex education, and source of information as predictors of the attitude of female students towards sex education. Data pertaining to the above variables were obtained from 296 subjects (148 female students and 148 mothers) in the Amhara region (South Wollo Zone). The background information were collected using a questionnaires, and psychological variables were assessed by employing scales. Analysis involving multiple regression and partial correlation suggested that the age and grade level of female students do not independently contribute to the variation in attitude towards sex education. However, attitude of parents, source of information, and religion were found to be the most powerful predictors of the attitude to female students towards sex education. Like wise, educational level of parents, knowledge and discussion on contraception and sex education were found to be strong predictors of attitude of female students. Finally the importance of the result, particularly in relation to the influence of background and psychological variables in determining the attitude of female students towards sex education, and implications of the findings are discussed.
