The study investigated the influence of parents, teachers and government attitudes towards sexuality education on inappropriate sexual behaviours of secondary school students. One hundred and twenty-five senior secondary school students were used for the study. Related literatures that discussed issues of Sexuality education, sexual behaviours among students were used as theoretical basis for the study. Three research questions and hypotheses were developed for the study. A research instrument titled “Sexuality Education for Inappropriate Sexual Behaviour. (SEISB) was used to collect data for the study. The instrument had 14 items which was validated with a reliability coefficient of 0.82 which shows that it was reliable for the study. Linear correlation and regression analysis was used as a statistical tool to test for relationship between the independent and dependent variables. From the findings, it was discovered that there is no significant relationship between parents’ and teachers ’ attitude and government activities towards inappropriate sexual behaviour among secondary school students. Recommendations were also made. This study will be significant to counsellors and the general public in sensitizing parents on issues regarding sexuality education so as to guide in order to curb inappropriate sexual behaviours among secondary school students.
