A non-biased look at the controversy of sex education. Each topic is looked at, and considered with their side being argued equally. The conclusions: Children are becoming more overwhelmed by sexuality from the earliest grades; the sexual corruption of children reflects an adult sexual culture. Any sexuality education program created for today's children needs to contain and stress self-control and apply ethical values. It is obvious, just by reading headlines out of any given newspaper, that the new generations of adolescents are much different from their parents' generations; the curricula of the schools need to reflect these obvious changes. What worked twenty, thirty years ago apparently is not working any longer.

From the Paper:

"Have school curriculum kept up with the changing times? Are the children of today getting an education to fit today's world? Is there anything that can be done to be sure these children will be ready for important decisions they will soon be making? These are some especially important questions both parents and policy makers should be asking themselves. These questions are most important when relating to the sexuality education children are receiving, or going to receive, in schools across America. Parents should be alarmed to find out that most adolescents learn more about sex from their peers than from parents or school. These adolescents who cited peers as their principal source of information on sex had more permissive standards about sexuality than those whose sources were more reliable (Fromme & Emihovich, 1998)."
