In reading the article on student involvement at Kennebunk High School ["Vocal Arrangement,” August/September], I was astonished to discover high school classes discussing how to have safe oral sex using Saran Wrap. Surely we can muster sufficient judgment to determine that parents are not sending their children to school so we can encourage already-rampant promiscuity by conducting “how-to” sessions on sexual issues.

It is especially disturbing to consider how these lessons break down the very natural and protective modesty that should exist between male and female teenagers. When more than 30 percent of all births in America are out of wedlock, I don’t think this kind of classroom discussion is the answer. Instead, how about a lesson on morality?
