What an amazingly stupid idea. High school’s a valuable training ground for real life, but this one would just isolate gay students from experience in a society where they are the minority. Also, I thought that segregation was being phased out. Guess it’s been too long since I was in the states.
I’ll bet the school will do well and then hetero kids will start wanting to attend. It’s happened at some of the other experimental schools in NYC. For example, there’s a Chinese bilingual experimental school that non-Chinese parents with zero interest in the language are trying to get their kids into, simply because the parents think the students are getting a better education compared to other public schools.
New York? I would of that it would be better to set up a special school for straight kids.
