University Sex Research keeps parents of minors in the dark

The “Safe Schools” Program just got a lot worse.  Worse than you can imagine.

Parents of children as young as 14 years old were kept in the dark about Latrobe University researchers contacting these children and questioning them about their sexuality.

The Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and ­Society, run out of La Trobe Univer­sity, went to significant lengths to ensure its interviews with underage participants took place without parental consent when researching its report, From Blues to Rainbows.

From Catallaxy  Files:

So we have the rather fascinating situation where a university ethics committee believes that it is entirely appropriate for its researchers to go online and speak to minors – without their parents consent – about their sexuality? I’m just wondering how that is “low risk”? I’m especially interested in what they did with information that some minors may have had suicidal thoughts? Is doing research into teen suicide low risk?
