Controversial proposal to reduce absenteeism in High Schools.
In his latest book, “Sex, Lies and Negotiation Techniques”, Toronto based author and speaker Tim Paulsen, has proposed a radical method to dramatically reduce absenteeism in High Schools.
“As important as these three topics are in life, none are taught in school.” He goes on to say, “O.K., a bit of negotiations at the university level, but that’s about it. A few years back, the American philosopher Meatloaf sang ‘two out of three ain’t bad’. He didn’t sing two out of three is excellent, or even good – just ‘not bad’. One out of three doesn’t’ even get an honorable mention.“
Paulsen says that some people say there is sex education but he says no – at least not the good stuff. They cover a bit of biology, most of it useless and practically all of it boring. If you’re teaching people how to drive a car, you don’t teach them about the combustible engine. You get ‘em behind the wheel and teach them how to drive right.
What we need, claims Paulsen, is R.U.S.E. which stands for Really Useful Sex Education.
He admits he is in the shallow end of the pool. “I’ve got the idea and I’ve got the logo. It will take some smarter people than me to figure out the details: who is going to teach, the homework and testing. What I do have is this: a great logo and a guarantee that RUSE will have a positive effect on absenteeism and dropout rates for high school.
