A case study of Utah's sex education debate of the late 1980s and early 1990s is the vehicle used to study the education and social policy process of Utah. Interest group influence is tested, and Utah history and Mormon sexual culture are discussed. The influence of historical and cultural forces on policy, through the medium of interest groups, is explored. Strong indications of group influence are revealed and groups are found to be representative of dissimilar, competing cultures in Utah. Migration is found to play a key role in social conflict in Utah.
