UPDATE: Bed-Stuy School Principal Will Not Offer Condoms at Prom But Still Thinks Teens Need 'Em
Yesterday, the Voice reported on an interesting story coming out of Brooklyn, in which a principal of a high school there offered to hand out condoms (rubbers, jimmy-hats, whatever they're calling them these days) at the school's prom, presumably in a bucket, presumably near the door. Darryl Roscoe argued that the measure was "necessary" and "the right thing to do," especially on a night that can get as rambunctious as Silvio Berlusconi's bunga bunga parties in Milan.
Now, Roscoe has backed down from the plan that sparked controversy in the blogosphere (probably just because of the headline) because he has no intention of breaking the DOE rules. Also, who wants to sign a condom contract before prom?
