The high school at Gloucester, MA has an unusually high number of students who are pregnant. This story played on the news today.
What caught my attention is how all the talk is about the problem being the school's. Students are "making a pact" to have babies. They're supposedly sleeping with whomever just to have babies. What's the school going to do about it? What?
Hey. Since when did the school become their parents? Who gave the schools the authority to control the moral choices of the community's youth? Read the article and you'll notice that the responsibility of the girls' parents is virtually a non-issue. In defense of the school system, I think the news people are asking questions of the wrong people.
As Earl Pitts would say, "Wake Up America!". Your children belong to you, not to the schools.
