Parents in one Massachusetts town are expressing outrage over an explicit [s-x] survey being administered to sixth-graders without disclosing the questions to moms and dads. “The school committee in Shrewsbury will not allow parents to view copies of the survey because they feel parents will ‘misinterpret’ the questions. However, parent David Fisher says unbelievably, there is no concern that sixth-graders will misinterpret the questions.” On the other coast, in one northern California school district students as young as 14 can now receive birth control patches, oral and intravenous birth control, the ‘morning after pill’ and condoms, all without the notification of their parents. And in New Zealand, not wanting to be left out, a high school principal closed the school library because she wanted to turn the space into a cyber café for students (a project which never materialized). “The 1200 students at the school have been using home computers and the public library to get information they need.” Wiser heads eventually prevailed, and over the weekend the new refurbished library was opened.
