Gay-Friendly School On The Ropes?

Progress Illinois seems to disagree with the Mayor decision to pull the plug on the "gay-friendly" school:
The Pride Campus student body would include a half-and-half mix of gay and straight teenagers, so it's unclear how Daley could suggest it would "isolate and segregate" students. Daley's complaint is also undermined by his previous support for schools that similarly separate students with certain backgrounds or interests. Military academies and single-gender academies have boomed under his administration. And magnet campuses -- which tend to attract more privileged students -- have also spread.
