Helping Students Understand and Accept Sexual Diversity.

Sears, James T.

Abstract: Although educators seem reluctant to integrate sex into the curriculum, covert sexual instruction comprises a large part of the hidden curriculum and ambience of any junior or high school. When presenting heterosexual mechanics, most health classes bypass homosexuality, safer sex practices, abortion ethics, and birth control methods. Honest dialogue is needed. (21 references) (MLH)
