12 February Sex Education, Past and Present: When CHE and GLF started their campaigns in the early 70s to get the subject of homosexuality into schools, little did they know the minefield they were stepping into. For nearly 150 years 'sex education' had been a battleground in the war between the permissive progressives and the prohibiting reactionaries. Peter Scott-Presland charts the story of the great battles around the issues of sex education - battles for which at least one person paid with her life.
