David Brody of CBNNews has a post up describing on possible point of contention between religious conservatives and President-elect Barack Obama's pick for the Department of Education, Arne Duncan: his support for Pride Campus, a proposal for a Chicago public school that would be "deliberately welcoming of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens." Pride Campus, which was a concept designed by the faculty of Chicago's Social Justice High School, was intended to address the shortfall in performance among LGBT teens by offering an environment that would not be...you know, hostile to their existence.

CHICAGO -- Chicago Public Schools has delayed a vote on a proposal to open a “gay-friendly” high school that will weave gay and lesbian “heroes” into its curriculum.

Chicago Public Schools CEO Arne Duncan said Friday that the school board would see the plan Nov. 19.
The proposal was originally supposed to be considered Wednesday.

Duncan gave preliminary approval for the the Pride Campus of Social Justice High school earlier this month.

The high school be open to all students citywide but would provide a safe, “gay-friendly” atmosphere. It is hoped the school would be a way to combat the high bullying, dropout and depression rate many gay and lesbian students experience nationwide.
