Risky Lessons brings readers inside three North Carolina middle schools to show how students and teachers support and subvert the official sex education curriculum through their questions, choices, viewpoints, and reactions. Most important, the book highlights how sex educationâ¿¿s formal and informal lessons reflect and reinforce gender, race, and class inequalities. Ultimately critical of both conservative and liberal approaches, Jessica Fields argues for curricula that promote social and sexual justice. Sex educationâ¿¿s aim need not be limited to reducing the risks of adolescent pregnancies, disease, and sexual activity. Rather, its lessons should help young people to recognize and contend with sexual desires, power, and inequalities.
