Teen Couple Expelled from Catholic School over Pregnancy
A pair of classmates has been expelled from Bishop Martin High School in Orange Walk, following the discovery that the fourteen-year-old female student is several weeks pregnant. It is believed that a male teenager of the same age may have impregnated the second form girl. In the wake of the school’s decision to dismiss both students, controversy has been brewing surrounding the issue. News Five understands that the Department of Human Services has been contacted, but the response from the development officer has been called to question by the mother of the young boy. There have also been concerns that his right to an education is being flouted.
