Handing out educations, not condoms

Marc Carey blogs about a Fox News report about a New England school that has instituted a policy to hand out condoms whether parents want them to or not:
A New England school district has approved a measure that will provide free condoms to elementary school students and direct teachers not to comply with parental wishes to the contrary.
We could, of course, comment on the sheer silliness of these attempts by the educational establishment to direct the sexual lives of their students. I have commented before that if our public educational institutions do the same thing for sex as they have done for reading and writing, the very survival of the race may be in jeopardy.

But perhaps the better comment is the one made by some wag that schools shouldn't be handing out condoms; they should be handing out educations. And until they figure out how to do that, it would probably be a service to everyone else if they just laid off the stupid education tricks.
