All San Francisco middle school students now have easy access to condoms, whether or not their parents want them to have them.They're going to encourage what any thinking adult knows is unwise (what junior high kid is emotionally ready for sex?) because 5% already do it? 5%?
The San Francisco Unified School District became the third in California – after Oakland and Los Angeles – to give away condoms to middle schoolers when board members unanimously approved the decision at a meeting Tuesday night, NBC Bay Area reports.
SFUSD safety and wellness director Kevon Gogin said the decision is based on a survey of sixth through eighth grade students that showed about 5 percent are sexually active and 3 percent use condoms.
How can we as a society hold parents responsible for anything their children do when the government (the school system) undermines parental authority and responsibility?
