The First World War, Sex Education, and the American Social Hygiene Association's Campaign against Venereal Disease.
Imber, Michael
Journal of Educational Administration and History, v16 n1 p47-56 Jan 1984
Prior to the First World War, the public's attitude toward sex education was apathetic. With venereal disease posing a threat to America's "military efficiency" during the war, however, military programs in sex education were instituted that then gave rise to similar programs in secondary schools in the 1920s.
