Reduction of Teenage Pregnancy as a Rationale for Sex Education: A Position Paper.
Dunn, Patricia
Journal of School Health, v52 n10 p611-613 Dec 1982
Regarding sex education in the schools primarily as a means of preventing teenage pregnancy creates misunderstanding about the subject and about human sexuality. This approach is likely to: (1) concentrate on junior/senior high students; (2) focus primarily on females; (3) stress biological rather than emotional development; and (4) cause public confusion about the purpose of sex education.
