Overview

In Schooling Sexualities, Debbie Epstein and Richard Johnson bring together contemporary debates about sexuality with the study of schooling. They pose controversial questions. How far is schooling influenced by wider public debates and scandals about sexuality? How can we understand the role and limits of moral traditionalism? What has the impact of feminism and the lesbian and gay movement been? How have these radical influences been recuperated? What part does schooling play in the production of sexual and other identities? Why is sex education in schools so 'impossible'? What are the strategies for improving it? They have written the first sustained study of these questions - accessible, engaging and argumentative. This will be a key text for teachers and policy makers, for those concerned with sexual and educational politics and for students of sexuality, gender, cultural studies and the history and sociology of education.
