Second condom meeting held at Buffalo Public Schools

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo Public Schools are debating giving out condoms to students at their schools, and they’re taking public comment.

The school system held its second of three total public meetings Thursday.

STORY | In the first of three meetings, some parents were outraged. 

According to a survey of students — which was presented at the meeting — students say 33 percent have had sex in the past three months, 11 percent have experimented with sex, 16 percent had sex with more than four people in their lifetime, and surprisingly, 35 percent didn’t use a condom during their last sexual encounter.

The goal of the initiative is to curb teenage pregnancy and prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases in schools.

The last public meeting will be held on March 12 at 5:30 at the Merriweather Library. The opinions taken at the meetings will be given to the board of education. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
