About This Guide

This Research Guide focuses on sex education in the public schools. The demand for sex education programs has increased in recent years due to the AIDS epidemic and concerns about teenage pregnancy. While some believe that information at an early age will result in more responsible choices throughout a student's lifetime, others believe that issues such as contraception and abortion should not receive classroom coverage. Additionally, arguments continue over whether or not to base programs on the idea of abstinence.
