    Proof for the bolded? I'm assuming you made grammatical error and meant "students'"

    Why the hell are we debating sex ed? Sex ed is not the issue. The latest salvo in the War on Women is the issue.

    Any misogynist students who are offended by pregnant classmates (and yes, that includes other females) are more than welcome to drop out and become deadbeats.

    No, I'm a person stating my opinion. Problem?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No, I didn't mean students, although there will probably be more than one student that will be affected. The Charter Schools are supposed to improve Student Achievement. Each pregnant girl that the school expels, the school will have failed in improving that girl's achievement, thus the possessive use of the word student, because each pregnant girl that is being expelled is a student.

    No, everyone has an opinion, but that doesn't mean they are right. And in your case, you may not see anything wrong with their law, but the Constitution, which is what laws are based on, says different. Problem?

    I think the school was wise to change the school policy even though I think there is nothing unconstitutional about the policy. It would have cost millions to defend their position and the benefits of such a policy certainly can’t be that advantageous.
