    And yet...they have been...since the formation of the school. But...no...its not possible that they might know something you dont know.

    But hey...why bother having a school system actually WORKING to make positive changes in the students and communities lives. Lets just shut them down, make them like all the other public schools. **** the students they are actually helping...you by damn demands the RIGHTS...that...apparently no one else is fighting for.

    What do you think they know that I don't, that gives them the authority to violate Title IX?

    Who said anything about shutting them down? All they need to do is cease and desist with this discriminatory, misogynistic, and illegal policy.

    I can't. This is important.

    I think everyone can untie the knot in their panties, because this isn't going to become any kind of real policy.

    And, if it does, the state will cut off public funds and the independenty operated school will probably close it's door, permanently.

    Its likely that they had lawyers review their policies in advance...even had them accepted at a school board. And heres the funny part. The people of Richland Parish arent even the ones upset. Oh...I dont know...maybe its because Richland Parish suffers in comparison to Louisiana at large in all demographic areas and they figure a charter school that has higher standards and greater expectations might actually be a GOOD thing for students and their community...but what do they know. The ACLU will swoop in and save them.

    It is a public school and it IS policy and has been for several years. Parents fight to get their kids in the school to actually give them a better opportunity at life. Not to worry...the ACLU will rescue them from themselves. In no time they can be back to having teen moms roaming the hallways. They can stop the 3 strike and you are expelled policy next. They can turn the charter school into just another failed public school in the name of 'equality'.

    What you're basically saying is "I'm sure the government wouldn't violate our rights, so we should just trust them to police themselves." That is NOT how our justice system operates. Public schools have no authority to violate Title IX, and so far you have given no credible explanation how this isn't a Title IX violation and/or why Title IX wouldn't apply to them.

    And heres the funny part. The people of Richland Parish arent even the ones upset. Oh...I dont know...maybe its because Richland Parish suffers in comparison to Louisiana at large in all demographic areas and they figure a charter school that has higher standards and greater expectations might actually be a GOOD thing for students and their community...but what do they know.

    Just because you (or the people of Richland Parish, or anyone else) might think that mistreating pregnant girls produces "higher standards and greater expectations" does not give the school the authority to violate federal civil rights laws.

    Your posts practically drip with misogyny. Where is your similar outrage over fathers being allowed to stay in school? At most, you give lip service to kicking them out too when specifically asked about it, but I don't see you bitching about "teen dads roaming the hallways," as though their mere presence in school is somehow harmful.

    There's no doubt that this policy won't fly and that's the point I'm making.

    The fuax outrage over this is just another chance for the hand-wringers to beat up on fill in your favorite politically incorrect group here

    The school doesn't actually have a problem, de jure, with being a parent, only the pregnancy itself. The women/girls can return to the attending normal classes after they have the child. So the whole "father's aren't being punished" thing is not only idiotic, it's completely baseless. But don't let reality get in the way of a "good" talking points, and in liberal cant any kind of sex/race based bull**** is a "good talking a point" .

    They arent BEING kicked out...they are being given a home study course while they are pregnant. Is reading not your strong suit? As for the ****ing HILARIOUS misogyny comment...this isnt ABOUT attacking women, it is about a SCHOOL actually...now...hang on...trying to HELP a community of people CHANGE from well below the poverty line and below average levels of academic achievement to ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING about bringing about change. Shocking...right? Not a bunch of worthless POS lawyers running around bleating about 'rights'..people in the trenches actually DOING something about it. **** that...cant have that. We should let people like you drive them back to mediocrity all in the name of fairness and their 'rights'...rights which...shockingly...NONE OF THEM actually seem to be bothered by. Hmmm...must be the actual STUDENTS and community members WANT higher standards and positive changes for their kids.
