The KPS Sex-Ed Dilemma
MetadataShow full item record
Sex education has not always been integrated into tl1e American school system. Twenty years ago it would not have been acceptable to the general public to implement such a system. The consensus view was that this subject matter should be taught either at home or by the clergy, but society has changed and social circumstances warrant a reproductive health safety program in our public school system. The real question in this sex-ed dilemma is not whether or not there should be a such a safety program in the public school system, but it is how much and what type of information (i.e. moral values) should be included in this program and at what age should this program start. For Kalamazoo and my project, the questions that will be covered are as follows: 1) Should morals and values be incorporated into the sex-ed program? 2) When should the reproductive education begin? Many believe that the teaching and discussion of morals and values in a sex-ed program may lead to an undermining of home taught ideology. Some believe there is no way to reenforce an individuals' unique beliefs in a public school environment, however I believe that the incorporation of morals and values into this program is not only essential, but it should be obligatory.
