Condoms Given To Middle-Schoolers At School Health Fair
Some Wisconsin middle-school students got to take home souvenirs from a health fair — condoms.
An AIDS education group was handing out the prophylactics at the health fair organized by North Central Health Care in Wausau. The idea was to educate the middle-schoolers on the dangers of alcohol and drugs.
School district official Roger Rindo said administrators didn’t know about the condom giveaway in advance. Organizers and teachers stopped the handouts once they realized what was happening.
District officials have sent a letter home to parents about the incident, and the AIDS education center has apologized.
The primary problem was admitted by the school district – THEY DIDN’T KNOW about the condom giveaway in advance. Why didn’t they know? Who was responsible for inviting the AIDS education group into the health fair? Why wasn’t the question asked, “what will you be handing out to attendees?”
This isn’t ignorance, it’s stupidity.
