Sex Ed Class Halted At Hillsboro HS 4-21-2010

Efforts by members of a student leadership class to offer sex education at a Nashville public school have been halted and a teacher has been reprimanded.
The controversy arose after staff at Nashville CARES who were training the student leaders used a plastic model and a condom to demonstrate how barrier methods can prevent transmission of disease.
A father of one of the students also complained about the class after he heard about the material discussed at school.
The Tennessean reported Nashville CARES is meeting Wednesday with Hillsboro High School officials to determine whether the peer education program can be resumed, within boundaries of state sex education law.
The student leaders decided their peers might need information about safe sex and abstinence after used pregnancy tests were found in school rest rooms.
