This is an amalgam of contemporary debates about sexuality within the context of schooling, posing controversial question, such as: how far is schooling influenced by wider public debates and scandals about sexuality?; what part does schooling play in the production of sexual and other identities?; how can we understand the role and limits of moral traditionalism?; what has the impact the feminism and the lesbian and gay movement been?; how have these radical influences been recuperated?; why is sex education in schools so "impossible"?; and what are the strategies for improving it? This accessible study aims to examine and answer these questions, and provide a key text for teachers and policymakers.
