Organization and Administration of Sex Education Programs.
Whiteside, Patricia W.
This monograph discusses trends, principles, methods, and techniques for curriculum development in sex education. While sex education in the school curriculum is a controversial issue, many professionals in the field agree that it is important in meeting student's social, psychological, and emotional needs. Recent trends in sex education include changing the title "sex" to such other terms as family planning or health education, and greater use of the student-centered approach to learning. The dominant trend for the future is toward greater inclusion of such courses into the education of school age youth at all levels. The organization and administration of a sex education program should follow certain essential principles among which are a psychologically healthful teaching environment, current and accurate teaching materials, and community involvement.
