Description:
The main impetus for the development of school health education came from the grass-roots concern of parents and educators who perceived changes in adolescent behaviours with impact on Society. Given the structure of schools, this concern often led to individual initiatives in those schools who saw themselves as liberal or their pupils as high-risk. Many innovative individuals and schools around the country searched for models of implementation and materials. Some devised and developed their own, but others pleaded overcrowded time-tables, lack of training or a subject area simply too controversial or personal to be included in the school. In these cases it was frequently seen as analogous to 'relationships' or sex education. Individuals and groups around the country began to approach local voluntary, health and other professionals for advice and input to their school programmes.
