Brooklyn High School Giving Away Condoms at Student Prom

| by Michael Allen

Bedford-Stuyvesant Preparatory High School, in Brooklyn, New York, will be providing hundreds of condoms at the school prom on June 7, reports the New York Daily News.

Bedford-Stuyvesant Preparatory High School has been giving away condoms for three years, but this is the first time the offering will be at the prom; as a party favor, no less.

School principal Darryl Rascoe told the New York Daily News: “This is necessary. It’s practical and it’s the right thing to do. There are several kids in our school who already have children. We’re fooling ourselves if we think we can leave this up to teens to be proactive.”

Bedford-Stuyvesant Preparatory High School will also have a safe-sex assembly before giving away the condoms.
