In a case where one of your students told you she was pregnant, what would you do?
In this situation, there are various issues to consider before dealing with them. Firstly,it is essential to know what the state laws are around this topic (age of consent, pregnancy decision-making, and such) in addition to my school board policies regarding this issue and the community norms.
I’ll start by asking her how she has confirmed her pregnancy. Then I would go on to other issues like whether the sex was consensual and the age difference between both of them. But most important is the legal understanding of parental rights and student rights to complete privacy and confidentiality before proceeding with this matter.
