School Sexuality Education and Adolescent Risk-Taking Behavior.
Jacobs, Cecilia Dine; Wolf, Eve M.
Journal of School Health, v65 n3 p91-95 Mar 1995
Examines and critiques research that measures the effects of school sexuality education programs on adolescent sexual risk-taking behavior. Discusses common methodological problems and examines studies measuring program effectiveness. Research suggests participation in school sexuality education does not promote increased or earlier sexual activity. Not all programs effectively reduce sexual risk behavior. (SM)
