‘Teaching Good Sex’
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.
