The article reviews seven approaches schools have taken to handle sex education, and concludes that the most successful programs focus on ethical understanding, personal development and human relations. In practice, many curricula are eclectic, employing something from all the ideas. The more effective programs, however, are less restricted to the ideas of silence, sermons, threats, and facts and increasingly focused upon the teaching of ethical understanding, personal development, and human relations. An evaluation of what is emphasized in your curriculum in terms of the ideas stressed in this article should tell you what role your school is playing in the sex education of your pupils.
