Fifty-four percent of parents with kids in public schools say they favor Chancellor Joseph Fernandez's condom distribution plan, and 39 percent disapprove, according to a Gallup poll published Monday by New York Newsday.

Overall, 60 percent of 1,010 adult city residents surveyed Dec. 7-9 approved, 35 percent disapproved and 5 percent said they did not know. Fernandez's proposal, designed to be an AIDS prevention measure, would make condoms available on demand at all 120 public city high schools. It will be the subject of a public hearing Jan. 16.
