Researchers from Ohio and Kentucky looking into sex education in schools have discovered that "teacher-student relationships are key" to making sure that kids achieve a healthy sex life. Eric Anderman, educational-psych prof at Ohio State, and colleagues including Pamela Cupp of Kentucky carried out the research on some 700 …
..."teacher-student relationships are key" to making sure that kids achieve a healthy sex life...
...teachers willing and able to forge closer relationships with their students always came out on top...
...the teachers they selected for their study may have been more able to satisfy teenagers' needs than most...
...pupils learned more about sex when they were getting practical rather than just theoretical instruction...
...[the] thing seems to have gone down very well with the kids...
Disgusting. Have you people no morals?
Wait, don't answer that.
>>This is where the more hands-on approach always sees a better outcome.
....but over here, the teacher that lays hands on a pupil will get put away for a long stretch and will be entered in the Sex-offenders' Register !!
Perhaps Paul Gadd aka Gary Glitter will become a teacher in Ohio after he leaves prison in Vietnam for doing underage girls !!
Er, I don't think the human race has ever needed to be taught to actually _have_ "sexual relations". It's an inevitability that they'll happen. It's called nature. So let's make the best of it, eh?
But the fact that you used the term "sexual relations" makes me think you don't know what you're talking about.
I refer you to the above comments from "Aristotles slow and dimwitted horse" and "Michael Dean".
Won't somebody please think of the parents(' responsiblities)?
So does this mean that your average bible belter church going parent within these states is truly asleep at the wheel all the time with their heads stuck permanently up their A* and relying on other authority figures to teach that which they should have done from first principles , truly sad indictment that "Idiocracy" has arrived and is now a permanent feature within the states in question , shades of "Dumb and Dumber" and the totally blind being led down the garden path by those who never see past their own insanity !
That certain socialite syndrome is now a permanent fixture in the bible belt , how evil is that !
"When it comes to learning life-changing behaviors in high school health classes, the identity of the person teaching may be even more important than the curriculum", says the OSU item.
So these scholars haven't heard of Tupac or Beanie Man. Or of the Media-Infotainment Complex. Or of who owns it.
Or of the UK , where nu labour's schools sex education initiative led to an increase in teenage pregnancy - research having found that it was perceived by our noble yoof, with their still-developing organs and glands, as legitimizing said activity. Clearly these "psychologists" have a long way to go before they find the gists of their psyches.
"Kentuk-e-yans" - is that an attempt at phonetic spelling? No one over here says that... particularly no Kentuckian - even in Appalachia... maybe it's a reference to something I'm not aware of :\
@What about the parents crowd - it's very true that parents increasingly try to shift more and more of their child's upbringing to the schools. However, this could be one case where the little darlings are going to feel more comfortable and open discussing with... well... pretty much any one on the planet other than their parents =D
For those of you across the pond; in Kentucky, getting teachers involved in the sex education process would be a marked improvement.
Being the Heart of Appalachia, many young 'uns there already "get" their sex education from parents (and older siblings). A "Kentucky virgin" is any girl that can run faster than her brother...
Mine's the one with a mason jar in the pocket.
In the ongoing battle royale to see whether Lewis Page will Borg the Reg with his unhealthy fascination with flying instruments of death, or the Reg will Borg Lewis Page with its heroic embrace of writing entire news articles in the form of double entendres, the Reg just landed a vicious right hook, I'd say. But I'm sure Mr. Page isn't out for the count yet. Ding ding, round 11!
Paris...well, make up your own joke.
These days if you're waiting till high school to teach sex ed, you're already a few years late. Of course they were comfortable about it when the teachers taught in a friendly way, that's the proper way to teach anything if there were the time and small class sizes to make it possible. Can't speak for the state of many OH schools but down in most of KY outside of the metropolitan areas the school funding is fairly low, and teacher student ratios have as much to do with number of students in the geographic area as anything else.
