CPS to expand free condom program at 24 high schools
The Chicago Public Schools system is expanding a free condom program to 24 high schools.
Condoms have previously been available at two schools Collins and Foreman.
A CPS spokesman says principals will decide whether they want to make condoms available.
A staff member trained in sexual health education would hand them out.
According to a recent city report, Chicago’s teen birth rate has gone down 33 percent, but it’s still nearly two times higher than the national average.
