on behalf of the Centre for Research & Education on Gender, Institute of Education, University of London; Professor, Nottingham Trent University. In Schooling Sexualities, Debbie Epstein & Richard Johnson bring together contemporary debates about sexuality with the study of schooling. They pose controversial questions. How far is schooling influenced by wider public debates & scandals about sexuality? How can we understand the role & limits of moral traditionalism? What has the impact of feminism & the lesbian & gay movement been? How have these radical influences been recuperated? What part does schooling play in the production of sexual & other identities? Why is sex education in schools so 'impossible'? What are the strategies for improving it? They have written the first sustained study of these questions - accessible, engaging & argumentative. This will be a key text for teachers & policy makers, for those concerned with sexual & educational politics & for students of sexuality, gender, cultural studies & the history & sociology of education.
