If they succeed in keeping out the gay students, the overall average on the intelligence tests will probably drop by 20% or more.

If the Charter schools get ANY Federal or State funding......this would be discriminatory and AGAINST the law.......lawsuits will follow and the State could lose MILLIONS of Federal Dollars!!!

Has anyone noticed the amount of laws trying to be passed that directly affect gay youth lately?

This has The Family written all over it. They're doing one Hell of a job with their plan. What's not making sense is how well its working via Uganda spreading to Russia and now it seems they're starting it on their home turf.

Do you Daniel P? Have you ever heard of an OPINION?

Actually, it would be illegal to EXCLUDE a child based on their sexual orientation.....a Charter school is NOT the same thing as a Religious School!!!

For those not acquainted with "The Family", here's the links to a four-part series of interviews on the subject:

How would it be illegal? Certainly wrong but not illegal. Sexual orientation is not protected by Federal or LA state law.

Regardless of the law, few if any educators will find it necessary to not admit a student based on sexual preference.

There is also part of the bill that allows the school to not allow students who do not speak english well enough...Now that's funny. Louisiana is going to dicriminate against people who don't speak English????
English isn't really spoken in most of Louisiana, and they better watch out, a gay coon ass who gets denied an educastion could be a dangerous individual
That Bobby Jindal is a freakin' genious. Maybe he should run for the republican nomination....

I love New Orleans, which is Democratic. Is there any way someone can nuke the remainder of this state without harming it?

Not "fascism", per se.

Rather, authoritarian totalitarianism.
