Sex Education in the Public Schools.
Thornburg, Hershel D.
The articles contained in this pamphlet are presented to give educators and interested parents a frame of reference toward an important new curriculum area, family life and sex education. Sex education must be looked at from a multi-dimensional approach. Chapter One centers on the building of objectives for a program in sex education. These objectives are formulated partially by student need. Chapter Two discusses the sources from which youth typically obtain their information about sex. Chapter Three is concerned with the various administrative problems in considering and implementing a program in family life and sex education. Chapter Four revolves around evaluating school programs in family life and sex education. The final chapter pleads that new emphasis be placed on vital, life problems among youth and calls for cooperative interactions between school and community. (Author)
