MPS School Board Committee Votes Unanimously To Advance Free Condoms for Children

The public attending the School Board meeting last night waited until 11:25pm for the Board to take up the Administrator’s recommendation to provide free condoms to youth attending Milwaukee Public Schools.  After hearing from the public and deliberating amongst themselves, the School Board voted around 1:05am this morning to advance the proposal of providing free condoms to children in MPS.  The five committee members voting in favor of the measure include Directors Larry Miller, Terry Falk, Bruce Thompson, David Voeltner and Tim Petersons. 

It’s interesting to note that the front page of today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel read “Doyle calls session to alter MPS” .  The subtitle reads, “Spurred by poor math scores, he seeks action on mayoral takeover”.  Another subtitle on page 4A of the paper today regarding MPS reads, “Assessment puts students near bottom in nation”. While MPS continues to fail in teaching academic basics, they are front runners to promoting promiscuity among youth. 

The free condom distribution to children issue now goes before the full school board. The full board next meets on December 17th.  Milwaukee residents and taxpayers may contact the Office of the Board of Governance at (414) 475-8284 and the Superintendent’s office at (414) 475-8001.
