Condoms for fourth graders!

According to WorldNewDaily: "A campaign has been launched by concerned parents and others in Florida where a school board has adopted an explicit sex ed curriculum that includes various how-to lessons for students as young as fourth grade, and in one incarnation proposed field trips for children to purchase condoms and then talk about their experience."

This is not the only case of public school irresponsiblity in sex education (for example, here and here, and here, and here, and here).

My parent's generation was hesitant to talk about sex, so sex education may have been needed back then. For better or for worse, those times are long, long gone. I think the time has come for state governments to take sex education out of of the public schools completely and place the responsibility back on the parents where it belongs.
