Sex Education. Kaleidoscope.
Boderick, Carlfred; And Others
This publication attempts to keep a portion of the educational community in touch with current topics and trends. The present focus is on sex education, a topic of growing concern in educational circles. The texts of three addresses are presented, with audience questions and speaker responses. Dr. Carlfred Broderick gives an overview of sex education: the role sex education plays in children's development; the meaning and implications for understanding emotions, social roles, and skills; and sex education's definition within the sphere of education. Dr. Ernest Van Den Haag asks if sex education in the schools is the solution, and gives may reasons why this is not an ultimate answer. Dr. Esther Schulz presents some practical aspects of introducing sex education into school programs, and sex education's relationships to community and student attitudes and conventional curriculum. This publication was transcribed, published and disseminated through funds from a Title III Elementary and Secondary Education Act grant. (BP)
