"I Never Imagined that the Time Would Come:" Martin Cole, the Growing up Controversy and the Limits of School Sex Education in 1970's England
Limond, David
History of Education, v37 n3 p409-429 May 2008
This piece concerns the controversy engendered by Martin Cole's 1971 film Growing Up, an attempt to start a revolution in school sex education practices by showing explicit scenes of unsimulated sexual acts. Although Cole's film was never widely shown it marked a turning point in English school sex education by defining the limits of the 'tasteful' and the acceptable.
