ACLU Fights All-Male Charter School In Madison

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin is objecting to a publicly-funded all-male charter school in Madison.

In a letter to school district officials, the ACLU says there’s no proof that separating girls from boys will result in a better education. The union says it doesn’t oppose the public charter school as an alternative to Madison district schools, rather it objects to providing males with different opportunities by separating the genders.

The Urban League aims to improve the academic performance of minority boys with its Madison Preparatory Academy. Urban League president Kaleem Caire tells The Capital Times that an opinion from a state attorney says Wisconsin law allows single-gender public schools when alternatives are also available.

      The ACLU sued the Muslim Charter School as well ( The ACLU stands up for the rights of everyday Americans. If this is your definition of evil, then you live in an awfully strange world.

    One story talks about teen suicide in public schools, and the next is about the ACLU suing a charter school.

    Segregating girls and boys will probably cut down on teen suicide, teen pregnancy rates and many other things, including sex abuse by teachers.

    Forcing children into large centralized schools is a form of child abuse. And this is another example of how public schools are being used as political police or gestapo for liberal activists.
