Parental Attitudes toward High School Sex Education Programs

Abstract

This study investigated parental attitudes toward both general and specific aspects of high school sex education programs. The subjects were 125 randomly selected parental couples who were interviewed separately and concurrently. The great majority of parents approved high school sex education integrated throughout the curriculum, as well as requiring a course in family life and sex education. Contradictions are noted. For example, most parents wanted chastity taught as "best" if sex education is to be required, and at the same time wanted contraceptive education, but also wanted sex education taught in a context of God, marriage, and parenthood. Implications are discussed.
