The School Departments new policy on making condoms available to students ages 12 or over will be subject to discussion at a public hearing Wednesday at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
The event, scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., will be held in the Mass Mutual Gallery Room, 1150 West Columbus Ave.
Azell Cavaan, school spokeswoman, said all parents with children in the citys public school system are invited to attend.
The event is being held to get input from people on how the policy will be implemented, Cavaan said.
The event is being co-sponsored by the citys Health and Human Services Department.
The School Committee, by a 4-3 vote, approved a policy in April providing students ages 12 and older with access to condoms as a way to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
School Committee members said it was a very difficult vote, but those in favor said they believe it is in the best interest of the students safety and health, and enhances their opportunity to succeed by avoiding pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases from unprotected sex.

I’ve been to Springfield.I’ve also been to Detroit.I cannot see one bit of difference between the two cities.
Never been to Detroit, but live near Springfield. From pictures are news reports if I had to choose a “better” place, it would be Springfield.
