Boring subject

Tes Editorial

The research findings, reported in your front page story on August 11, that school sex education does not encourage teenagers to experiment irresponsibly are to be welcomed.

A success story, putting teachers in a good light, is a rare event.

There is, however, a slightly more cynical explanation.

Having successfully bored pupils, particularly the academically less able, with history, physics and the rest, teachers have now managed to make sex boring as well!
