Summary:
"When Sex Goes to School is a chronicle of the two decades that sociologist Kristin Luker spent following parents in four American communities engaged in a passionate war of ideas and values. The stakes in the conflict are deceptively simple and painfully personal. For these parents, the question of how their children should be taught about sex cuts far deeper than politics, religion, or even friendship.".
