Elementary school provides condoms to students

The controversial topic of schools giving out condoms to students is nothing new. However- one town in Massachusetts is taking that to a whole new level. Provincetown, Mass. elementary schools just approved a new condom distribution policy that sets no age limit for students to obtain condoms. On top of that, no parental consent is necessary. The policy says that students must speak to a school nurse or counselor before the condoms are given out. Although the policy clearly states the schools do not approve of sexual activity, they want all of their students to be prepared, even ones as young as first grade.

So do you think this new school policy goes too far? We’ll share some of your comments during the 10 o’clock hour of CNN Newsroom with Kyra Phillips.
