Skip to comments.Parent twist at Bronx HS (25% of students are pregnant or teen parents...)
Posted on 12/27/2011 8:06:03 AM PST by jimbo123
A shocking one in four students at a Bronx high school slated for closure is a teen parent or pregnant, The Post has learned.
That startling statistic is buried in thousands of pages of documents the city Department of Education submitted to the state earlier this year when it initially sought funds to fix the long-struggling Grace Dodge HS in Belmont.
It has since proposed shuttering the school with, critics charge, no regard to the parenting teens.

when there is a financial incentive to pop out babies the babies will pop out.
The responsible people of the world once again paying for the irresponsible people.
Just another day in Obamaland. :(
This crap is why non-government job white libs (excluding a few psychopaths who love to race bait) have taken to enviromental concerns and other such less depressing topics.
“A shocking one in four students at a Bronx high school slated for closure is a teen parent or pregnant,”
This cannot possibly be the fault of society or of America in general. This HAS to be about the personal responsibility and it sounds to me like the school is struggling because the students are not trying and they are futureless, so they believe.
“It has since proposed shuttering the school with, critics charge, no regard to the parenting teens.”
This is a school, not a daycare center for children. Really, these kids have ahd it bad enough, but they are just making things worse for themselves via getting pregnant in their teens.
I wonder how many more citizenry will have to put off having kids they desperately want in order to pay for the kids that teenagers pop out with merry glee.
There are incentives to being a “single mom” in our society today,
so, therefore, there will be more single moms.
the problem is that the system was designed to hlep people who accidently got pregnant out of wedlock and now it’s being used as an ATM machine.
a good start on the next generation of government dependents
Unless this trend is reversed, eventually the system will collapse in on itself and it will be quite ugly for those who live in the cities.
My bet is some of them got pregnant right on site at the school.
“critics charge, no regard to the parenting teens.”
They had plenty of “regard” when they argued that teens are “going to do it anyway” and that sex is a natural consequence of being a teen.
They’ve reaped what they’ve sewn in my opinion.
I’m not paying for it. After I get schooling and some funds, I am bailing to a country that does NOT support endless litters of illegitimate children. I want kids of my own and I am not putting having them off because I have to pay for Tamiqua’s spud or TaChinta’s brats who were created from the loins of a variety of gangster thugs.
Do people like these create the need for cradle to grave government programs?
Or do cradle to grave government programs create people like these?
These are kids being raised by two working parents (a male daddy and a female mama) with Christian values, right?
No, but the left would go find the ONE that was and hold them up as the example that “Christian values don’t stop this behavior”.

‘Cause the vast majority of formerly brilliant and ascendant Western Civilization, has weakened into thieving, destructive Socialism.
Maybe we need to go Biblical on unwed mothers.
Better test the water in the school swimming pool.
