Is Tonsillitis contagious?

Is Tonsillitis contagious?

I have heard from several parents that it is and it just doesn't make sense.

Please could you clarify this for me.

Thanks.

Dear Wcoetzee
It is caused by a bacteria so technically yes, it is contagious - but more between young ( pre-school ) children.
