CANTON, Ohio -- There are 490 female students at Timken High School, and 65 are pregnant, according to a recent report in the Canton Repository.
School officials are not sure what has caused so many pregnancies, but in response to them, the school is launching a three-prong educational program to address pregnancy, prevention and parenting.
Well that ought to help. Three prongs are better than two! But here's the real punch line of the article:
The newspaper also reported that students will face mounting tensions created by unplanned child-rearing responsibilities, causing students to quit school and plan for a GED. This will make it difficult for the Canton City School District to shake its academic watch designation by the state.
Uh, ya think?
The article reported that some would say that movies, TV, videogames, lazy parents and lax discipline may all be to blame.
movies/tv - possibly
lazy parents and lax discipline - most likely
videogame - ferfucksake what videogame contributes to teenage pregnancy? i can atleast see why people argue video games increase teenage violence and poor school performance.. but pregnancy???
Rush Limbaught just did a hilarious rant on this topic. In keeping with his constant effort to improve the common weal he decided to tell the school officials that what caused the pregnancies was...sex. You can play video games and watch movies all you want but only sex will actually cause pregnancy.
Even when I disagree with "El Rushbo" I can't help but laugh.
I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.
It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about mens male enhancement reviews) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about mens male enhancement reviews related articles and subjects.
