Daily outrage, "treating young people as chattel" edition

http://www.aclu.org/blog/womens-rights-lgbt-rights-religion-belief-reproductive-freedom/get-tested-or-get-out-school

The ACLU is demanding that the Delhi Charter School in Delhi, Louisiana, end its policy of forcing students to get pregnancy tests (and kicking them out if they refuse).

After perusing the school policy manual, I also disapprove of the school's policy allowing corporal punishment of students, and I'm glad that "public display of affection" including "holding hands, hugging, kissing, leaning against each other" wasn't consider a "major infraction" at my school.

Edited to add: The school is changing its policy.
