Students at abstinence-only high school getting chlamydia

Chlamydia rampant at Texas abstinence-only high school

By Glenn Schroeder

The superintendent of schools in Crane, Texas is rethinking the districts sexual education curriculum, after learning that 20 of the high schools 300 students have tested positive for chlamydia.

Jim Rummage told television station KFOR, “We do have an abstinence curriculum, and that evidently ain’t working. We need to do all we can, although it’s the parents’ responsibility to educate their kids on sexual education.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention isn’t mincing any words, calling the outbreak a health issue of epidemic proportions.

NYdailynews.com reports letters went home to parents last week, alerting them of the outbreak.

Chlamydia can result in permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system, if left untreated.

Crane, population 3,000, is located south of Odessa, in west Texas.


This story has me scratching me head while the students are now scratching their crotches.  These ‘abstinent’ students are obviously bumping uglies with their classmates because the only way to get chlamydia is by having some sort of skin to skin sex (vaginal, anal, or oral).   Obviously one student had to initiate the spread of chlamydia and I bet all 300 of those kids in that school have an pretty accurate idea of which kid it is.  Word to you kids, don’t be that person who gives everyone chlamydia.
But the more concerning part of this story about the spread of chlamydia in a so called ‘abstinent’ high school is the superintendents grammar.  I mean the word ‘ain’t’ is used a lot in the English language but come on, you’re the head of a school district, probably getting paid a 6 digit salary, and I believe that if it is your job to educate kids then when you give public statements you should talk like you’re educated.  It’s not that hard.
