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
I will say, though, that it would be a good choice to have. If I was a pregnant teenage girl, I would hate going to school. I would loath it with a passion, but thats because my friend base is so much smaller than the base of people who would call me 'slut'. I don't know where anyone else lives, but where I come from, teenagers are horrible.
Its not segregation in that manner. Its a way of which teenage women get that privacy that they wouldn't rightly get in highschool where teenagers judge and nit-pick and make life horrible. That line will give these girls a safety net so as them not to have to deal with others. You made a mistake, yes, but you shouldn't have to go through the hell that ensues because of it.
Separate schools could also be an opportunity for girls to learn more about what they will need to know for upcoming parenthood. That way they'll be ready instead of scared and confused when it all should happen.
I'm thinking it should be a choice. If you have good friends and a good family base around you whereas you wouldn't have to fear the problems that may arise with teenage prejudice, then go for it. Go to public schools. If anything, its subjecting fellow teenagers to what they should understand and learn from. If you're anything like me, you learn more from observation than you would of your own mistakes. So, it could be good for boths sides.
I really don't get why everyone is so against this idea.
Most of the original contentions are, frankly, offensive so I can see why Kamas and OverEasy were bothered. "Wrongly influences other students"? There are many, many aspects of individuals which can "wrongly influence" other individuals, so segregation on those grounds is unfeasible. And whoever said a pregnant girl can't serve detention for sassing the teacher? There's nothing physically taxing about a detention or any of the other traditional punishments. Sounds like your teachers need to toughen up! If those pregnant girls are using their unborn children as excuses to be lazy, someone needs to give them a cold, hard reality check and there's no reason a teacher can't do that.
Bets (unbiased) argument I've heard all day.

Contention 1: It hinders the progression of class transitioning, and wrongly influences other students.A majority of the time, a good portion the girls( that I've seen) who are pregnant are disrespectful and use their pregnancy as an excuse to sass at the teacher due to the fact that they can't be severely punished.This serves as a distraction to those of us who are in school daily in order to get our education.
Contention 2: Allowing them to attend regular public school would wrongly influence other students.Nowadays, i see how other teens react to finding out that their friend is pregnant.I see it praised and celebrated and announced in hall ways and used as an excuse to gain favor and privileges that the average student did not receive.
Contention 3: Having a separate facility for school would allow and integration of basic knowledge and parenting skills.
SO they can still provide for their child when they enter society as a fully-functional adult.
