Make Sexual Health Education Happen in Your School: A Guide for Advocates and Administrators

This guide (PDF) is based on the work of a coalition called the Minneapolis Urban Initiative (MUI), which formed with the goal of making sexual health education available to middle and high school students in Minneapolis, MN. Coalition members decided to document the coalition's work so that it could serve as a model for making sexual health education part of the educational agenda in other school districts. To that end, this guide is developed to assist educators, advocates, administrators and parents who hope to make sexual health education available in their schools.
