PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (CBS/AP) — How young is too young?
That’s the question a Massachusetts public school is facing as they have come under fire for making condoms available to all students, even those in elementary school.
Children start first grade between 5 and 7 years old.
Kris Mineau, president of the conservative Massachusetts Family Institute, calls the idea absurd.
But Provincetown School Board Chairman Peter Grosso defended the policy, saying there is no set age when sexual activity starts.
Under the policy, any student requesting a condom from a school nurse must first receive counseling, which includes information on abstinence. The policy does not require the school to contact parents.
The policy was approved by Provincetown’s school committee June 10. It takes effect in the fall.
