Yet, sex and health education remains an explosive issue for our public schools. Tensions flare regarding how frank and open discussions of human sexuality should be and what kinds of health information students needs. Sex, Kids, and Politics: Health Services in Schools examines the practical, cultural, and political implications of placing health service programs in public schools. Catherine Emihovich and Carolyn D. Herrington cut through the often divisive rhetoric on the topic as they detail three cases of schools districts whose responses to children's health needs are diverse, and whose effects on teens' lives are compelling. These districts are all in Florida, where a highly controversial, state-wide initiative for health services in schools recently went into effect."@en ;
