University of Chicago Press

This chapter reviews current research on sex education in the United States, and describes the settings and methodology of the present study. This book is informed by two-and-a-half years of ethnographic research conducted between 2004 and 2009 in five states: California, Florida, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and, very briefly until politics closed the door, Maryland. These states represent a breadth of state policy responses to sex education and to federal Abstinence Only Until Marriage education (AOUME) funding and policies.

Keywords:   sex education, policy structures, research settings, research methodology, ethnographic research, AOUME
