School just got a little more exciting in Derby, England, where 11 year olds will soon be taught “bra fitting” alongside math and science in their yearly curriculums.
Derby High School will give this essential know-how to its classes of preteen students starting next year. Led by Mrs. Karan Hopkinson, girls will be taught how to properly measure ... Read More
