Sex Education in America: A View from Inside the Nation’s Classrooms
A series of new national surveys of students and their parents (1501 pairs), teachers (1001), and principals (313) from the Kaiser Family Foundation on Sex Education in America, was released on Tuesday, September, 26th, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Challenging the convention that Americans are reluctant to have sexual health issues taught in school, the surveys show that most parents, along with educators and students themselves, would expand sex education courses and curriculum. Michel McQueen Martin, Correspondent, ABC News “Nightline” moderated a discussion with students, parents, and teachers about their personal experiences and wishes for the future of sex education. Dr. Ramon Cortines, former Chancellor New York City Public Schools gauged the response from the education community.
