Disestablishing Sex: The Case for Released-Time Sex Education
Glanzer, Perry L.
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n1 p59-61 Sep 2011
Allowing nonschool organizations to provide sex education in a released-time format would disestablish state-funded sex education and give families a choice in the sex education that would be provided for their children. Released-time programs, as originally conceived and currently practiced, allow students to be released for a period of time during the school day to study the religion of their family's choosing. That concept could be expanded to include sex education.
