The purposes of the study were:
1. To analyze and evaluate library resources of written views and opinions for and against sex education.
2. To analyze and evaluate the limitations and potentialities of the four respondents to meet the need for sex education.
The procedure utilized by the writer in this study was the philosophical method of induction and deduction. The analysis was interpreted from the related literature which contained pro and con views, opinions, and studies about sex education and related areas by various individuals.
In this philosophical method of research the writer designed the study which elicited the kinds of facts needed to test the hypothesis. It was a subjective process. The writer chose a descriptive study and assembled the data that fit the purpose of the study.
Results of the study led the writer to conclude from the evidence available at the present time that the schools should be included as one of the major respondents to meet the need for sex education in present day society. There was a consensus of opinion of authorities cited that all respondents must cooperate at the present time if the need was to be met.
