In this era of scarce education resources, expenditures need to be scrutinized carefully. Redundancy should be minimized, if two program one has in school have a potential to be taught together at a cut cost for no cut in benefit, they really should be combined.

For example, there is a great deal of pressure to expand both physical education and sexual education. One thing that would help without taking resources from other programs is combining them. A hands-on sexual education course ensures that they can learn the same information, that it will be far more memorable to the student than book learning, and, taught properly, can lead to burning quite a few calories, making students less obese. Whaddya think?

I think you could have been more creative and less cliche than to go with the "physical sex ed course" idea. :P

But you have my support otherwise.

It was the whole point of the post.

The otherwise was just filler tbh.

I know, but its still fairly cliche. Or are you just bored out of your skull?

Be careful using the word "filler" in this sort of thread.

It would also have the benefit of encouraging partisipation in group projects.

I dunno about you, but I prefer to work in pairs, not groups. I'm not crossing... pencils?

Looks like you could use some of that education if you can't solve that equation without using the crossing pencils shortcut.

Hell, the crossing pencils shortcut won't work very often anyway. The margin of error isn't wide enough and it's an inductive method.

I don't even know what to say to that. I can't stop laughing long enough to think.

Super secret private message thread that Panda sets up from time to time between some DDOians.

So that's what the reform party is up to?

Evidently not a partisan effort then. Oh well.

Apparently Panda doesn't think you have the "testicular fortitude."

It was funny, I am sorry that you weren't there, everyone should have been allowed to enjoy it.

Nags, Volkov and OreEle, you know the implications. *Sigh* the gig is up...we're a Miley Cyrus death cult.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Good god that's awesome.

As for the plan itself, if the school has a higher male population than female, I pity the teacher that would have to design that curriculum and implement it. It's hard enough to get boys to dance together in PE :P I don't think many are versed in the horizontal man mambo, nor do I think it'll start catching on anytime soon.

Furthermore, I ponder what the state standards for health education would look like...(insert Kama Sutra here).

If there is an odd number of people in class, do they have 1 group of 3, or does that one person just sit on their hand?

Nah. We'll just make sure the health class is equipped with stools instead of chairs :P
