Using Surveys to Track Student Sexual Behavior and Attitudes in the Public Schools: Current Case Law and Future Implications
Bullis, Ronald K.
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v3 n3 p235-246 Sep 2008
Two recent federal court cases have addressed the constitutionality of using sexual surveys in public schools. This article compares these cases with an earlier case dealing with the same issue but reaching different results. This article also describes the constitutional rights of parents to educate their children and the school's rights to decide what sexual information it will present to its students. This paper also outlines the rights of privacy for both students and parents as applied to sexual surveys. Finally, this article offers lessons and implications from the case law applicable for future sexuality-related surveys.
