Abstract

Several of Benhaven’s students entered adolescence in 1975–1976, and the staff felt a need for some action on sex education.* We were aware that a few of our students were almost the same age as our youngest teaching aides and showed signs of sexual interest in them. We needed to establish policies to guide our own behavior as well as theirs.
