Not Assessment, But It Is Still a Hot Topic

When it comes to the well-being of children the people who will probably be the most outspoken about any new policy will be the parents.  That seems to be the case with a clinic at a middle school offering birth control pills to girls.  The school fills as though it is protecting the small group that is sexually active in the school and the administration wishes to protect those students.  They are not advocating for students to be sexually active.

Many parents want to believe that their children asre innocent and will not engage in such behavior, but the fact of the matter is that they are as early as elementary school.  Students at this age are already dealing with soul searching to find themselves and are capable of making some decisions they didn’t quite think through.  I am not saying they should go around engaging in all kinds of questionable behavior, but we should take some initiative to protect them.
