Homosexuality: An Educational Confrontation.
Mathews, Walter M.
The school's reaction to homosexuality, in particular as related to the teacher, is discussed, and studies relating to the homosexual are referenced. What the educator can do to prevent homosexual behavior is, according to Hooker (1961): (1) create a climate that allows homosexuality to be openly and sensibly discussed and objectively handled; (2) provide for adequate sex education of both parents and children, so that the homosexual can understand himself better and the community can free itself of its punitive attitudes toward all sexuality; and (3) increase efforts to provide family counsel and child guidance services designed not only to promote healthy family life but also to provide specific help for parents whose children show early signs of developmental difficulties before these become fixed.
