Good grades are key to cutting 'risky behaviour', says Gove - Telegraph:
A proper grounding in traditional subjects is the most effective way of preventing children having sex too early, according to the Education Secretary.
Michael Gove said formal sex education lessons may not be needed if schools can raise pupils’ overall grades across the curriculum.
Addressing the Commons education select committee, he said there was a direct link between children doing well academically and their chances of indulging in “risky behaviour”.
