The Globe and Mail profiles a new program in two Calgary high schools which focuses on straight up talk about sex to Grade 9 boys, with students free to ask about anything and everything they’d like. In an age where internet porn has become ubiquitous, the idea is to teach the young men not just about pregnancy and STI prevention but about fostering and maintaining healthy relationships with women. In effect it’s about teaching the students to be “men” and not “guys.”

It’s the sort of program school districts throughout Canada and the US could learn from, and hopefully one that will be the model for more to come.
