Teacher Suspended for Condom Demonstration

Here's an interesting story.

A friend drew my attention to it on CNN, but that story didn't have many details (like what kind of teacher he was). Turns out, he's a health teacher.

Health teacher Colin Nicholas instructed students how to put a condom on a banana and may lose his job.

He was told condoms have no place inside Collier County public schools. He was told he showed poor judgment. He was told he no longer could teach at Gulf Coast High School.

Here's what he did in class:

Nicholas first showed students how to put a condom on a banana the second week of December. Then he picked two volunteers, a boy and a girl, to come up to the front of the classroom. The teacher then dimmed the lights, put on the music at hand Christmas carols and while the boy held the banana, the girl put the condom on it, Nicholas said.

But the students did not have to participate, or even watch.

Students could opt out of his class, he said, or if they felt uncomfortable during the class could have gone to the library.

Now this is just dumb. The guy's a health teacher, teaching high school kids how to properly use contraception.

Really, they should fire him, don't you think? After all, ignorance is preferrable to actually knowing how to prevent teenage pregnancy, right?
