Lynn Classical High School is considering providing free condoms and birth control to students. Parents and teachers voiced their concerns at Monday night’s school committee meeting.
“The fact that our teen pregnancy rates are disproportionately high relative to the rest of the state means that’s something we really need to take a look at,” Lynn School Committee member Jared Nicholson said.
“Last school year they said that there were 57 pregnancies of those seven or eight of them were a student’s second pregnancy under the age of eighteen,” Lynn School Committee member Michael Satterwhite said.
The vote will be held on November 14th.
