    Homosexuality became an issue early in my teaching career with the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, which coincided with my return to the classroom from an administrative position in 1979. The outbreak was a major news story and I covered it in the current events portion of my classes. We had only one nurse for six schools in our Fryeburg, Maine district and she asked if she could come into my social studies classes so we could teach sex education together. She believed my presence would make it easier on the boys. She was a conservative, Catholic woman and...

    Newburgh New York school district yanked a ninth grade book considered by teachers to be “pornographic.” An Arizona mother launched an avalanche of protest that forced Arizona schools to pull an eleventh grade book that portrays teens in a sado-masochistic relationship. A Catholic school superintendent admits there were two first grade books about families—that included pictures of homosexual pairs—listed on the Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative website, a resource for Catholic schools nationwide. These “family” books—The Family Book and Who’s in a Family—were removed from the website after parental protest.Across the nation, in public and Catholic schools, parents and teachers...

    CLIFTON PARK — Those wondering why Shenendehowa schools recently discontinued sexual education lessons taught by Planned Parenthood left Tuesday's Board of Education meeting disappointed. More than 200 people piled into the Gowana Middle School to speak or learn about the school district's decision to sever its longtime relationship with Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson. Planned Parenthood educators had for two decades discussed abstinence, sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy and other topics with district middle and high schoolers as part of its health education curriculum. But the district told Planned Parenthood in October to stop sending the guest speakers after it received...

    Animated sex scenes featuring Swedish teens in a new sex education film has led to the film being reported to the police for violating laws against endangering the moral upbringing of young people. The film, "Sex on the map" (Sex pĺ kartan), was co-produced by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU) and the Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company (UR) and broadcast last week on Sveriges Television (SVT). The 30-minute film is the first sex ed film produced for Swedish schools for 25 years. While animated, many of the film's drawings are nevertheless quite detailed. The film also includes scenes featuring...

    Over the past decade, politicians have battled about how to reduce the teen pregnancy rate: safe-sex vs. abstinence-only sex education programs, even as films such as "Juno" and births by famous teens such as Bristol Palin and Jamie Lynn Spears seemed to make adolescent pregnancies more socially acceptable. At the same time, after declining for years, the teen pregnancy rate increased, but the pace at which teens were having babies appeared to stop falling or even inch up. Now, the Obama administration has entered the politically sensitive debate, promising to put scientific evidence before political ideology. A $110 million campaign...

    by Steven EditorOctober 8, 2007Des Moines, IA ( -- Campaigning in Iowa over the weekend, pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama attempted to moderate his views on abortion and abstinence education. However, he made it clear he has no interest in limiting or reducing abortions and his pro-abstinence stance is tempered by his backing of sexual education.Speaking in the northeast town of New Hampton late Friday, Obama responded to a question in a forum from a Denver resident in the first primary state for a family reunion.The questioner asked Obama to reconcile how society gets upset at someone like Michael...

    BOSTON — Theresa Breguet’s 7-year-old son could be exposed to a radical sex education program if Massachusetts lawmakers enact two bills backed by Planned Parenthood.  Under the proposal, 4- to 11-year-olds will be taught the “correct terminology for sexual orientation (such as heterosexual and gay and lesbian) “and be able to “describe different types of families,” according to the Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum Framework. Students from 14-18 will learn about “possible determinants of sexual orientation” and confidentiality laws concerning “reproductive health problems.” Potential requirements like those brought hundreds of people to a legislative hearing in the Massachusetts State House Jan....

    Into Bed, Blindly by Wojciech Kosc 19 September 2005 Compulsory sex education was a prominent issue in the last Polish election campaign. Four years on, it barely features on the political agenda. Years ago, Poles would apparently blush when they came to one tick-box on customs and immigration forms: sex. Embarrassed at these foreigners’ bald intrusion into the darkest sphere of their lives – because how else would you have sex if not with the lights out? – they would leave the box blank, writing instead a plain “no!” This may only have been an urban legend, but it captured...

     A FEDERAL DISTRICT JUDGE IN Maryland has jolted the local liberal establishment in Montgomery County by blocking a pilot program in sex education. The program was designed to sweep away the "myths"--the lingering moral inhibitions and retrograde theological teachings--that apparently feed reservations, still widely held, about homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Judge Alexander Williams Jr. put the kibosh on this plan, and the jolt has had a deeper resonance, not least because Williams happens to be a Clinton appointee. But the lasting tremors come from the fact that the decisive strands in his May 5 judgment are lines of argument that...

    Last week, every Yale undergraduate received an e-mail heralding "Sex Week: A Celebration and Exploration of Sex and Sexuality at Yale University." Imagine a modest student's reaction to "Grandmother of Masturbation" Betty Dodson's impending lecture on the topic, "One Woman's Illustrated Sexual Revolution." Yale sophomore David O'Leary, upon returning from five o'clock mass, found in his inbox the promise of a "Porn Party! sponsored by Wicked Pictures with porn star Devinn Lane." According to event organizer and Yale senior Eric Rubenstein, Sex Week was supposed to open discussion about issues of love, intimacy, and romance, and was timed to coincide...
