Test Prep Puts Male Teachers Fertility at Risk

News you will read nowhere else.


United Press Inc. - In a study of 361 male teachers seen at their infertility clinic, researchers at the Florida United Clinic of Fundamentals (FUCF found an association between the hours males spend leading students in test prep activities and their sperm quality. On average, the more hours the men spent on test prep each day, the lower their sperm count and the greater their percentage of abnormal sperm.

Asked to comment on the study, a spokesperson for the Florida Education Association, affiliated with NEA, AFT AFL-CIO, and other entities that go boing in the night, said that further study is needed.
