Minister: cut teenage pregnancies with army cadets
In this article from The Telegraph, Matthew Holehouse quotes John Nash (the British government's Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools) as saying "The great thing that the cadet force can bring to schools is men. Of course women forces personnel are extremely good role models, particularly for girls in schools, but sadly a large proportion of young people today are brought up in what we politely call ‘single parent households’, which almost certainly normally means a single mother.”
He claims that teenage girls from single-parent families who had “never experienced the love of a man” could be deterred from forming “unsuitable relationships” if they enrolled in a cadet unit".
