School Of Hard Knocked Up

Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal's disastrous experiment with turning the state's education system into a for-profit charter school nightmare funneling taxpayer education dollars to religious schools while destroying the state's remaining public schools  and destroying public libraries continues unabated, and the latest revelation in this monstrous mess is the fact that one of these public charter schools taking taxpayer money is in clear violation of the Constitution and Title IX with a policy that expels female students for being pregnant.

If an administrator or teacher suspects a student is pregnant, a parent conference will be held. The school reserves the right to require any female student to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not the suspected student is in fact pregnant. The school further reserves the right to refer the suspected student to a physician of its choice. If the test indicates that the student is pregnant, the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter school.
Any student who is suspected of being pregnant and who refuse to submit to a pregnancy test shall be treated as a pregnant student and will be offered home study opportunities. If home study opportunities are not acceptable, the student will be counseled to seek other educational opportunities.

In other words, get with child, get thee hence.  No section of the rulebook about Baby Daddies however, apparently that behavior is too difficult to stop enforcing, even though teenagers magically get pregnant through osmosis or something.

Needless to say, now that these assholes are taking state taxpayer money, they are subject to federal laws, including the Constitution and Title IX, which expressly forbids expelling a student for being pregnant.

The ACLU is giving these guys time to completely rewrite their rulebook before they drop the hammer on them in what could be the shortest federal case in national history.  Me, I'd still pay to be in the courtroom for the whole 7 minutes it took to decide this case.

PS, Jindal's plan is coming to a country near you should Romney and the GOP gain control of Washington and then use tax dollars for religious charter schools to teach complete nonsense.
