This important book is a unique analysis of sex education in schools. It includes a survey of the history and content of sex education programmes. A psychiatric assessment demonstrates the threat these programmes pose to normal sexual development. It reviews the law and local authority policies, the validity of health education and the impact of AIDS on the subject. Evidence is given of ineffective sex education and the success of more recent programmes with clear aims and objectives. There are also useful guidelines for parents.
