"Modernism Gone Mad": Sex Education Comes to Chicago, 1913.
Moran, Jeffrey P.
Journal of American History, v83 n2 p481-513 Sep 1996
Recounts the battle over the first attempt in U.S. history to implement sex education in a citywide system of public schools. Frames this conflict as part of an ongoing collision between progressive, social science-oriented reformers and a traditionalist populace. Discusses the reform movement's shift from moral to scientific authority. (MJP)
