‘Teaching Good Sex’
Catholic World News - November 23, 2011
The New York Times offers an explicit and deeply disturbing look at sex education at a Philadelphia school. The Times also reviews the history of sex education in American schools:
Sex education in America was invented by Progressive Era reformers like Sears, Roebuck’s president, Julius Rosenwald, and Charles Eliot, the president of Harvard University …[Eliot] concluded that sex education was so important that he turned down Woodrow Wilson’s offer of the ambassadorship to Britain to join the first national group devoted to promoting the subject.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
