That said, I am forced to roll my eyes about the fact that parents can sign a form to opt-out of the program - and by doing so theoretically prevent their kids from accessing condoms in the schools. I know that such opt-out options help make condom distribution programs more palatable to school boards and administrators, but they always seem both futile and counterproductive to me. Preventing kids from easily accessing condoms isn't going to stop them from having sex. All it's going to do is make it slightly more difficult for them to do so safely. It can also, depending on how such opt-out lists are implemented, make accessing condoms slightly more difficult for everyone, since their existence means that nurses will presumably have to check whether a kid is allowed to have a condom rather than simply giving condoms to anyone who asks.
