    Really? Links please!

    There really isn't much point to attempting a conversation with one whose sole purpose is to stop discourse.

    Every student is to be considered in their aim for achievement.

    You obviously know jack **** about charter schools, and your grammar knowledge doesn't seem much better: students' = possessive.
    Apparently I know more than you, jack, because I wasn't using the plural, but the singular. So, in your face, grammarless!



    Unfortunately, a lot of people like to talk out their ass while totally ignorant of issue they are pontificating on.
    I'm so glad you are admitting to it.

    Charter schools are not public schools, nor are they bound by the same rules public schools are. Attendance of a charter school is neither obligatory nor a right. If this was a run-of-the-mill public school you and all the pants on fie lefties would have a point.But they don't.
    Ha,ha, I love it when a poster declares himself superior in his knowledge about a subject and then proceeds to prove his ignorance on the subject. As usual Republicans/conservatives try to act knowledgeable on every subject but just end up showing their racist ass. And, as far as your snarky remark that lefties don't have a point, FYI, Louisiana has changed their policy about kicking pregnant girls out of class.

    Hope you enjoy wiping the egg of your face!

    Introduction
    A charter school is a public school created through a charter with the state, a school district, or some other public entity. State charter school statutes typically relieve charter schools of state and local regulations so the schools are free to innovate and experiment. In exchange, charter schools agree that renewal of their charters will be contingent on their success in improving student academic achievement. Depending on state law, charter schools may be subject to the control of traditional school boards or granted independence from local school authority.

    What are charter schools?

    Charter schools are public schools. They are tuition-free and open to any student who wishes to attend. Charter schools allow parents, organizations, or community groups to restore, reinvent, and reenergize our public school system. Charter schools are designed, tailored, and governed by each local community, rather than by a central bureaucracy.

    NEW ORLEANS -- A Louisiana charter school is changing a policy that kicked pregnant students out of class and required them to be home-schooled, the school's board chairman said Wednesday.
    No one at Delhi Charter School in rural northeast Louisiana realized there was anything wrong with the policy until the American Civil Liberties Union's state chapter threatened to sue, said chairman Albert Christman. The policy has gotten "everybody up in a roar," he said.

    So pregnant women can't learn? What does a pregnant woman do that disrupts the learning environment?

    Are there any rules that are acceptable to you? Are you so unruly that order and discipline are irrelevant for you?

    You said that this is about "creating a conducive learning enviornment". So again I ask, what does a pregnant woman do that disrupts the learning environment.

    As for rules, when there is a rule that punishes a female for being pregnant, but doesn't punish the male involved that is wrong. PERIOD.

    You want those rules that high five the male and punish the female, that's on you and proves you support sexism. I wouldn't have a problem with it if they also kicked out the male involved.

    She thinks, reads, and writes. Can't have women doing that, especially pregnant women. Because none of that would be good for her baby.

    Re: School policy forces students to take pregnancy tests, bans pregnant teens

    Lets all just look at the reality of the situation....


    They don't want pregnant girls at the high school because they are SLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLUTS! And we don't want everyone at school distracted by a bunch of SLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLUTS. So kicking them out will keep everyone from being distracted as well as keep others from wanting to be SLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLUTS.

    There........ You can now close this thread.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Achievement is not based on "one student". They use things like graduation rates and averages on standardized test scores.

    Charter schools are not public schools. The end. Saying something is a public schoold because of where it gets some of its funding makes every major university in the USA a "public school". So shove the semantic bull**** up someone else's ass.

    Charter schools are not bound by the same rules/regulations public schools are. Which you chose not to bold on your pathetic copy and paste job.


    I like how you respond to **** like days after someone writes on it, like the coward who talks big and tough after the other guy walks out of the room. Grow some balls. Oh, and learn some basic grammar. "dog's" = singular possessive, "dogs'" = plural possessive.


    Most second graders I've seen have easily grasped that, but given a psychotic liberal brain, maybe someone might figure it out by, say, sophomore in high school? I know by the time they are in college they will claim they know everything there is to know about the English language, when they don't know the most basic grammatical concepts. As a side note, when you do something really stupid, you shouldn't keep drawing attention to it. Just a bit of life advice.

    I am reasonably sure I have already answered this.

    You are so strong! May I feel your muscles tough guy?

    ARCHIVED--Applying Federal Civil Rights Laws to Public Charter Schools

    Charter schools are considered public schools. They do have certain exemptions, but they must follow federal civil rights laws including title IX.

    Making students at a charter school take a pregnancy test and kicking them out if they test positive is against the law. Kandahar and I have provided numerous sources including relevant court cases on the subject throughout the thread. If anyone wants to dispute that, they are going to need more evidence than mere personal feelings on the subject.
