Some parents in Massachusetts will be getting a phone call soon telling them their 12-year-old students can now get condoms -- from the school nurse.
The controversial move is part of a "comprehensive reproductive health policy" by the Springfield schools to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, according to foxnews.com .
Administrators are emphasizing to parents and guardians they have the right to opt out if they don't want their children to get condoms.
The letters and opt-out forms are targeting families of middle and high school students ages 12 and older.
What do you think? Would you like to see Valley schools try a similar condom policy?
