Chicago, IL—To combat bullying Chicago plans to create a high school for the Gay, Lesbian and Transgender students. The goal is legitimize the long held unlawful “separate but equal” segregation inside a public school system.
I applaud the idea of a place where they kids can focus on their education without fear. Unfortunately what this really says is Chicago has surrendered to the fact that they can’t control violence in their schools.
That tells me that other kids will continue to be targets for juvenile criminals Chicago refuses to deal with. I can imagine the Gay school will also attract a number of straight students pretending to be gay just to escape extortion and sexual predators in problem schools.
This is another example of an ineffective government band aid being used to fix a hemorrhage.
