The Status of Sex Education Programs in the Schools of the York County Board of Education.
A sample of teachers and principals was asked to respond to a survey regarding the status of sex education (SE) programs in the schools of York County, Ontario, to determine how students might be better served. Opinions on philosophy, scope, methodology, and outcomes of sex education as well as observations and recommendations were also elicited. Elementary teacher responses do not indicate how well or how much SE is taught, but they do indicate that SE is taught separately and differently to boys and girls. Secondary teachers/principals indicate that SE is offerred in all secondary schools, at most grades. Tables of specific survey responses, as well as appendices which include a recommended book list, film list, and filmstrips for the teaching of Family Life and Sex Education are attached. (BEF)
