Madrid schools teaching 13 year-olds how to use condoms

.- The Spanish organization Professionals for Ethics has slammed the president of the Community of Madrid, Esperanza Aguirre, who despite her promises to the contrary, has allowed schools to teach 13 year-olds how to use condoms.

The organization pointed to reports in an educational magazine that confirmed that students in some cities in the Madrid community are being taught how to use condoms.

According to Fabian Fernandez de Alarcon, general secretary of Professionals for Ethics, Aguirre is going against her own policy of opposing the indoctrination found in the course Education for the Citizenry.

“What is clear is that in the Community of Madrid, words are one thing and actions are another. We are tired of seeing parents who object to Education for the Citizenry pressured to have a certain kind of emotional-sexual education imposed on their children at school,” the general secretary said.

Fernandez noted as well that the government has yet to provide schools and teachers with guidelines on how to apply a Supreme Court ruling from February of 2009 that prohibits schools from imposing “opinions on certain controversial moral issues” on students.
