Chicago schools to offer condoms to fifth graders: ‘Society has changed’:
A new program by Chicago Public Schools involves offering condoms to elementary school students in fifth grade.
Incoming students will have access to 250 condoms per elementary school; high schools are required to have 1,000 on hand.
“I would expect that not everybody is going to be completely on board right from the start, but I do think society has changed,” CPS doctor Kenneth Fox said, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.
The policy, passed by the CPS Board of Education in December, also ensures that students have menstrual products, masks, and other health products. --->READ MORE HERE
Chicago Schools Claim Dishing Out Condoms To 5th Graders Is Needed Because Racism:
Chicago Public Schools, the third-largest school district in the United States, plans to provide condoms to students 10 years and up this fall to enact “anti-racist pedagogy.”
The board of education’s policy passed in December and mandates all institutions serving fifth grade and older to have a “condom availability program.” According to the policy, dishing out contraception to minors who have largely yet to undergo puberty is “medically accurate” and “provides strategies to support all students that are inclusive of gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, sexual behavior, race, and disability.”
Six hundred schools in Chicago will receive thousands of condoms, courtesy of The Chicago Department of Health. Doctor Kenneth Fox, who works for the district, indicated to the Chicago Sun-Times he believes it is a reasonable precaution even though many students being given the prophylactic are just in 5th grade.
“When you don’t have those protections and don’t make those resources available then bad stuff happens to young people,” Fox said. “You have elevated risks of sexually transmitted infections, of unintended pregnancies, and that’s very preventable stuff.” --->READ MORE HERE
