Turns out that kids who don't like school end up turning to sex and drugs.
A study of British adolescents, ages 11-14, found that kids who disliked going to school were nearly twice as likely to have early sexual relationships and abuse alcohol.
The study, involving 3500 11-14 year old kids for 15 British high schools, too into account the responses the children gave to questions involving their feelings about school, their relationship to their parents, and whether or not they had engaged in sex or the use of alcohol.
"Our study identifies that the children who drink and are sexually active are also more likely to be unhappy with their school and home lives," said Mark Bellis, one of the members of the research group, in a released statement.
"Such children can become disengaged from both family and educational support and risk progressing to sexually transmitted infections, teenage pregnancies or becoming an alcohol related casualty at an accident and emergency unit."
The study, published in the journal Substance Abuse, Treatment, Prevention, and Policy, found that for adolescents as young as 13 years old, children who drank alcohol were much more likely to have had sex and more alcohol they drank the higher the risk of early sexual behavior.
Countless hours wasted by people who could have been figuring out something of tremendous value to the fate of humanity in order to figure out that kids who don't like school probably like to drink and fuck and that the more they like to drink the more they fuck???
We needed a study to figure this one out???
A five year investigation on the direct correlation between the enjoyments one gets out of their job and their level of pay?
A profile of thousands of women all over the world in order to try and figure out why fat girls try harder in bed???
No wonder those limeys had their panties all in a wad last week about the skyrocketing price of tuition in England...Look where their money is going...
