Chicago plans school for gay students
The London Telegraph ^ | October 9, 2008

Posted on 10/09/2008 1:06:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The Pride Campus of Social Justice High School would be open to all students in the city, and would probably end up being "majority straight", said Arne Duncan, the head of Chicago Public Schools.

But it would provide a supportive atmosphere for gay pupils, using prominent gays and lesbians - including James Baldwin and Gertrude Stein - in its curriculum.

Bill Greaves, the city's liason officer on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues, said the school would "make sure these people are not invisible in history".

He said it was important that gay and lesbian historical figures were highlighted to give young gay people positive, successful role models.

The proposals were supported by most of the 50 Chicago residents who attended a public meeting on the city's education. They will be voted on by the Chicago board of education on October 22.

If approved, the Pride Campus would be unlikely to open until 2010 and would teach 600 students.

The scheme has already been tried elsewhere, with the Alliance High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which considers itself "gay friendly" and has 125 students.

So the gay kids will be rounded up and put in a special school. Will they have to wear pink triangles, too?

Using public money for a segregated school? I thought that was against the law.

I’m sure the school would have a killer theater program as well as fashion design.

Just when you think the Chicago City Schools can't possibly do anything more stupid, wasteful of tax dollars, or harmful to its students they go and pull something like this.

Keep in mind that this is a school system that graduates barely over 50% of it's high school students, and most of them drop out after their Sophomore year.

By this logic, the city should also open a taxpayer-funded Western Civilization school, which would teach the accomplishments of the Judeo-Christian European-descended “community.”

The name Social Justice High School is enough to send shudders up the spine. Marxism through and through.

Yes because it's far more tolerant to just seperate people and treat them differently than to have everyone equal! This is a joke!! The first two teachers to be hired.....

Yeah, I caught Social Justice High School as well. And this would be the Pride Campus. The country is about to get a dose of education-establishment aggrieved-class urban Marxism that would choke a horse. So to speak.

That would work.

What do you think about Boortz' idea of calling them the Pink Panthers? Just think of how cool the fight song would be. Just right for the cruisers.

Somehow, I expect there to be fences between the sides of the field, though.

I didn’t know liberals had laws to follow; thought laws were just for us Republicans/conservatives. Obey or pay! That’s their great philosophy.

I thought the establishment said that Lawrence v. Texas was about “consenting adults” “in private”. This is minors. In public. On your dollar.
