| Open Player in New Window

Panelists:
*Nancy Johnson, 4J School District Curriculum Specialist for Sex Education and Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA).

*Jed Johnson, Director, Stop and Think (Abstinence-Only Organization).

*Brother John-Marie Bingham, Dominican Resident Seminarian, St. Thomas More Newman Center.

*Sara Wee, UO Undergraduate and Peer Health Educator.

*Mary Gossart, Vice President, Education & Training, Planned Parenthood Health Services of Southwestern Oregon (PPHSSO).

*Rev. Melanie Oommen, First Congregation Church.

*Jessica Bogli, private health education consultant.

Our panelists explore and debate contrasting pedagogical approaches to sex education in middle and high schools; the assessment methods and empirical research evaluating the efficacy of these approaches; and finally the moral and ethical perspectives informing such education and mentoring. Our panelists also share their personal experiences working with students and young people both inside and outside the classroom as counselors, teachers, and presenters.
