Yikes! Money is the only reason I can think of why this district would want to drop their sex-ed classes. What do you think?

DA Threatens Arrest for Local Sex-Ed Teachers

(April 7) -- A Wisconsin district attorney is urging schools to drop their sex-education programs, warning that the teachers involved could be arrested if they follow a new state law requiring them to instruct students on how to use condoms and other contraceptives.

In light of a letter from Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth, leaders at the five school districts in the county are evaluating what to do now, New Lisbon School District Superintendent Tom Andres told AOL News today.

"I don't intend to put our teachers in harm's way," he said. "We were just about to meet to discuss how to comply with the new law. Then this letter came, and this is another piece of the puzzle that we'll have to consider as we figure out how to move forward."

Wow! Just another example of how narrow minded we've become and how politicians can create chaos by turning personal opinions into crusades. If he disagrees with the law shouldn't that be an issue with the legislators and/or the state supreme court?

I'm not a parent at all, but this has to be the STUPIDEST thing I've heard of in a LONG time.

I'm also a male.
