A report of a school not allowing a girl to enrol because she is pregnant has come to light.

"We do not take single young girls who are mothers. This is not a suitable school for such "

"This school is NOT a haven for young pregnant people or for young mothers"

This is a STATE funded school , all be it run by what seems to be a very single minded person.

IMO , such a person should not be running a school , really this has no place in a modern country , if we read about this in the Daily Fail in Afghanistan we would all be tutting over our cappucinos wouldn't we !!

They don't like it - they don't take her. It's freedom and democracy.
Whoever likes taking single mothers - open your own school and go ahead.

Wasn't there a legal case a while back concerning a gay teacher who couldn't get a job in a catholic school because homosexuality didn't tie in with the ethos of the school. Teacher sued and lost afaik.

The school could probably argue the same point here.

If the other kids see her pregnant then they might want that too and then they guys would get some

You spelled 'discrimination' wrong.

So guys , what should we do with this girl , send her off to the laundry ?

Great idea !!

The thing here , this is not a privately funded school , this is funded by US the tax payer.

Was reported yesterday in the Journal.ie.
I didn't post it because I thought someone else might have already: http://www.thejournal.ie/not-a-dumping-ground-pregnant-girl-turned-away-from-school-433812-Apr2012/

THE OMBUDSMAN FOR Children Emily Logan has recommended that a school which refused entry to a pregnant girl apologise for the way she was treated.
The mixed Catholic ethos school in Munster was subject to an investigation by Emily Logan, after the girl and her mother filed a complaint to the ombudsman’s office, reports the Sunday Times....

Agreed. But they still need to be educated.
