Organizers behind a plan to develop Chicago's first public high school catering to gay and lesbian students have changed the name and broadened the focus of the school to include all disenfranchised groups of students, according to officials.
The revised plan is expected to be voted on Wednesday by the Chicago Board of Education. It comes after religious leaders, some gay rights activists and Mayor Richard Daley expressed concerns that developing the proposed School for Social Justice's Pride Campus would segregate gay youths. If the school is approved, it will be named the Social Justice Solidarity High School when it opens in 2010.
Michael Vaughn, a district spokesman said, "They wanted to try and make sure that the scope was broadened so that kids who are isolated for other issues, whether that be religion, obesity or other things that kids get teased about . . . have a spot at that school too."
Rev. Wilfredo DeJesus, pastor of the New Life Covenant Church in Humboldt Park said he and other ministers were against the initial proposal because it segregated students. "I'm happy with the end result. All of the kids will win. We want to be sensitive to every child," DeJesus said.

GREAT! Now the gays can indoctrinate the other kids who are stuggling, they will be told that they have gay tendencies and be lead along like sheep to the slaughter.
I'm SURE that the fat ones won't tease the gays, and the gays won't tease the religious ones.
So the problem is solved!
Kum ba yaaaa, my lord.... kum ba yaaaaaaaaaaaa..
Notice that the focus here is definitely NOT on education.
I’m sure their main focus will be on how to put a banana in various tailpipes.
To be called ‘School for Victimhood’.
Or Dating Service for the low self esteem crowd.
Geez, the liberals are just full of great ideas! How are “special” people supposed to deal with life after their school years are over, if they were sheltered from life while in school? The outside world doesn’t give a rip if they feel special. Regular old schools were the best way for everyone to gain the social skills necessary to prepare us for life outside school. How is it not segregation to segregate kids by their differences from others? Furthermore, everyone has something about themselves that makes them significantly different from others. ARG. Liberals screw up everything.
