And I oppose them receiving federal funding, too.That aside, there are still some schools who discriminate that are HIGH quality institutions that could produce adverse effects if denied enrollment. Notre Dame, BYU, and any service academy comes to mind.

Myself, I think that the government should get out of the student loan business entirely. The only schools that should be under the control of the feds are those they fund. That would be the military academies.
"Desirable" is up to the individual. If they consider a school to be desirable, then it shouldn't matter for **** to them if they have to get a private loan or a government one.

As someone who once worked for a similar para-church organization I understand the importance to the organization's mission for its staff to lead Christian lives. At the same time I've seen what I consider to be unreasonable abuses and a lack of compassion when dealing with such cases. I wouldn't have publicly shamed the lady nor would I have kicked a vulnerable pregnant lady on the streets who needed to support herself and have health insurance especially at a time in her life when she needed it most. I also think in such cases its important to not automatically assume she was having her sexual fun and got pregnant as rape does happen. I have a friend who was raped as a teenager, never explained to her dad the circumstances of her pregnancy and essentially treated her like dirt, bad enough if she got pregnant the usual way and insulting to injury considering her was sexually assaulted.
Its a difficult situation because her job involved working with kids who's parents were likely told their kid's education would be in a manner supportive of their Christian values and a Biblical world view; in this case reinforcing family values that encourages their children to refrain from sex until marriage. I think under the circumstance I would have preferred seeing her reassigned to a role that didn't involve contact with kids for a the rest of the school year with no change in pay or healthcare benefits. Depending on the age on the kids, willingness of parents and willingness of the teacher, if she did get pregnant as a result of rape I might even support having gender segregated classes where the kids (teens) could be told what happened using it as an opportunity to educate the kids on the dangers of the world, personal safety precautions, Q&A and how to show compassion for rape victims maybe with help from law enforcement and the medical community. Again, only if everyone is agreeable. I certainly wouldn't want to 'make' a rape victim go public unless she wanted to and if not just give her an office job for a year.
