Debate: Should pregnant girls be allowed to stay in school? (It's school, not a maternity home)
The debate on whether pregnant teenagers should stay in school raises a lot of issues. But the common English adage 'a rotten apple spoils the barrel' is a good start in this case. A pregnant teenager should stay home until she gives birth so that her presence won't be an encouragement to her peers to also indulge in premarital sex just because they won't be sent away should it happen to them.
