Educators in Montgomery County, Md., schools are now permitted to give condom demonstrations in high school health classes following a 4-1 school board vote on Tuesday, The Washington Post reports. The board had deferred voting on the issue in March. Since then, school officials learned that four of the eight school systems in the region already provide demonstrations on proper condom use.
The board voted to permit all teachers in the region to demonstrate to students how to properly unroll condoms and to provide students with information on using condoms to prevent HIV and sexually transmitted diseases. Condom demonstrations also will include a video presentation. Only students who have parental permission will be allowed to view the demonstration, which the board determined can take up no more than 10 minutes of class time.
