La. Schools Ends Harsh Pregnancy Policy

It was a story that kicked up a firestorm of national attention, and, just as quickly, it’s over. The Louisiana public charter school revealed by the ACLU to have a policy of testing all female students suspected of being pregnant and kicking out those who turned out to be, or who refused to be tested, has reversed its policy. The chairman of the rural Delhi Charter School claimed that no one at the school realized there was anything wrong with the policy until the ACLU (and everyone in the entire country) pointed it out.
