Should Pregnant Teens be schooled In Separate Facilities?
Why don't we then continue this elitist manner of thinking and school people of different ethnicities in different institutions?A different form of segregation, equally as humiliating.
For one, you have grouped every pergnant girl together, saying they act the same way, they're disrespectful, etc. However I feel this is a large generalization, and it's not fair to all of them. I am sure, some people behave this way even when they AREN'T pregnant. And I am certain that every pregnant girl doesn't sass teachers and use their pregnancy as an excuse to act badly.
A majority of the time, a good portion the girls( that I've seen)...
For another, these girls have made bad choices, but how to deal with those choices is a family issue. They have a right to public school like everyone else. I am curious as to how this separate school would work, as I really don't see the government funding it, and I doubt people want to pay for it. Meaning the girls would probably have to have tuition or some such thing to fund the school they're being forced to go to. This idea alone bothers me.
Not to mention, They are probably terrified, hormonal, and everything else that pregnancy brings, separating them from everything they know, they're friends and teachers and comfort zone... to me it seems unneccessarily cruel. I know girls that made the choice to go to a different school after getting pregnant, but it was their choice. Stripping the decision from them and forcing them away doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me

Sure, but not if that would hinder others from schooling, also.
As to my opinion- I'm all for it. I go to a public high school, and see many pregnant girls.I have a few( like, four) in my athletics period( don't ask why, because i don't know) and it serves as a constant setback because we are forced to modified a few of our drills to accommodate the 'growth' within them.
The way you phrased it certainly made it seem as though you wanted them to be forced to go to the other school, so that was how I read the situation. I didn't see anything about this being an option for them.
As for them hindering your schooling, other than the gym class, I fail to see how they are affecting you at all. Or anyone else for that matter.
-Lessons interrupted in order for them to use the facilities/ or asking around for food( for nutrition, of course).
-Late arrivals to class- and having to repeat instructions as a result.
-A select few that are boisterous and refuse to work or even show up- and the teacher has to spend the whole class getting security to escort them out.
As OverEasy said, the boys are just at fault, a point you've ignored. Should a separate program be made for their stupidity that teaches them to parenting skills they need to help support the child that is equally theirs as the girl who bears it?

I think if there's really many pregnant girls at your school Jojo,*( I guessing around ten?) then it could be different from my school. It could definitely be a possibility, but a whole new school system could be expensive and not the best way to deal with the situation.
Do you hear yourself?
I didn't say or imply they they suddenly grew "stupid" as you like to call it but the whole educational experience would be harder.So- is it affect- I.Think.So.The environment can't give them the individual attention they and their unborn baby need- so why would they bother trying?You seem to completely ignoring the fact THEY. ARE. PREGNANT.It affects them emotionally AND physically.So- yeah. it would affect EVERY aspect of their life- especially education.
Umm. no.There is no way to tell just *who* the father could be especially in cases where-a.) the family would rather that it be kept secretb.) the male sin question refuse to take a DNA testc.) cases where the girl leads a very promiscuous lifestyle.So, as said before. Society has double standards.I guy "lays" a girl- and gets praised.a girl "gets laid" and is called a slut.
We can't always ensure that the male in question takes responsibility. Heck- some adults still haven' acquired that skill.
but we need to do what we can to ensure that the child has a fair opportunity and the female is able to finish her education in the most accommodating way possible.It's not the prison sentence you make it out to be.It's not forced- but it should be readily available if necessary.
Which is really weird because my school is very high up....
Unless you've been pregnant, and have lived out their life, I don't think it's your place to judge what's best for them
