DEBATE MOUNTS OVER THE LAW OF ALLOWING PREGNANT PUPILS TO CONTINUE ATTENDING SCHOOL

Written by on May 9, 2019

Great Dyke residents  have expressed mixed opinions  over the ministry of primary and secondary education’s elaboration on putting to practice the policy on allowing pupils who fall pregnant to continue attending lessons in formal schools.
.

The policy stipulates that children may be suspended , excluded or expelled from school for misconduct , but an exception can be made in the case of girls who became pregnant.
  Some residents who had a chat with our reporter Tariro Warara  however were for the policy saying pupils should be allowed a chance so that they pursue careers so that they  become  independent in future  while others challenged its validity saying the development promotes indiscipline among children.
 Shurugwi District Schools Inspector, Mr Jameson Machimbire defended the law in a telephone interview with the same reporter saying  as schools they support such children through the process as in most cases  girls are victims of  manipulations rape.
