Suggestions for Defense Against Extremist Attack: Sex Education in the Public Schools.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Commission on Professional Rights and Responsibilities.
The results of a June 1969 Gallup Poll indicated that 71 percent of the adults questioned favored sex education in the schools. However, public schools now are faced with intensive efforts by extremist groups to discredit family life and sex education programs. Charges aimed at eliminating these programs are seriously affecting many localities. This pamphlet cites extremist strategies in suppressing sex education programs, and contains counterstrategies and guidelines for education associations and school systems that desire to establish or continue such programs.
