Educationists oppose proposal to introduce condoms to sexually active students

By Ritah Kemigisa.

Educationists have poked holes in the proposal by youth activists to have condoms introduced to students who are sexually active in secondary schools.

Youth under the “Reach A hand Uganda” convened a meeting in Kampala a meeting where they endorsed the need to have condoms in schools to address reproductive health issues among adolescents.

Now thesecretary of the Federation of Non-State Education Institutions Patrick Kaboyohas labelled the proposal as an act of madness.

Kaboyo says more emphasis should be put on teaching the youth about the dangers of early exposure to sexual related activities.

He meanwhile recommends the need to strictly stick to the country’s syllabus and appreciate the science subjects like Biology which introduce Young people to reproductive health.
