SEX HYGIENE LECTURES TO BE
PART OF HIGH SCHOOL WORK.
The Board of Education adopted,
by a vote of 11 to 2, the suggestion
of Mrs. Ella Flagg Young, superin-.
tendent of schools, to make sex hy
giene lectures a part of the high
school curriculum in the Chicago
public schools when the fall termJ
opens, though the course will be call
ed "Personal Purity Lectures."
Children whose parents object to
sex teaching will be expused from at
tendance at these lectures and sep
arate classes will be provided for
boys and girls, who will be instructed
by physicians and medical college
Many letters expressing approval
of this action have been received.
"I believe such a course will be of
great value to Chicago school chil
dren," wrote Miss Jane Addams. "It
is not that the children are innocent
or ignorant, but that they are full of
corrupt and misleading knowledge."
Jacob M. Loeb, who led the fight
for sanction of Mrs. Young's sug
gestion in the board, declared that
the move by the Chicago Board of
Education would be followed by sim
ilar action by school boards through
out the country.
"An enlightened age recognizes
the necessity for instruction in sex
hygiene," said Loeb. "This is a great
step forward and I firmly believe that
we will never regret our action."
It was voted to appropriate $10,000
for salaries for instructors.
