What Is Being Done?

Gruenberg, Benjamin C.
May 1955
Education Digest;May1955, Vol. 20 Issue 9, p48
The article examines the state of sex education in schools in the United States. One of the most promising recent developments appears in the systematic efforts of various specialized groups to coordinate their experience and thinking. However, schools have ignored the most dynamic educational processes carried on outside. For living side by side in every community, in every neighborhood almost, are patterns of sex behavior and sex attitudes that are so contradictory that no theory or principle of decent human relationships can reconcile them.
