Catholic School Teacher Fired Over Pregnancy

Catholic School Teacher Fired Over Pregnancy

Source: abc NEWS

An unmarried teacher at a Roman Catholic middle school in Montana has been fired after getting pregnant. 

Patrick Haggarty, the superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Helena, says Butte Central teacher Shaela Evenson "made a willful decision to violate the terms of her contract." He says the agreement requires that Evenson respect the moral and religious teachings of the Catholic Church in both her professional and personal life. 

Butte Central elementary and middle school principal Kerrie Hellyer tells The Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/1enCcQ0 ) that Haggarty dismissed Evenson on Jan. 10. 

Evenson taught sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade literature and physical education for just over eight years. A phone message left for her Tuesday wasn't immediately returned.

holy cow, I want you to be my lawyer!

Quoting Billiejeens:

 She signed a contract stating she would do certain things - she lied about that.

She willfully continued to accept money after she knew that she was in violation of her contract - she accepted this money under false pretenses, therefore constituting theft  - criminal behavior.

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

What info did she not give them that they needed?

Thief?

Quoting Billiejeens:

 Other than being a liar and a thief?

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

Like her? What's wrong with her?

Quoting Billiejeens:

 After seeing the economy devasted by Obama it does make me wonder why anyone would ever hire a person like her.

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

After seeing this happen now more and more it does make one wonder why anyone would even work for people like this.

Well, she violated her contract.  She should have kept her legs shut.

It does violate her contract. But you would think they would maybe let her work behind the scenes until she has the baby. I don't think they want to encourage her to have an abortion. 

They do have a contractual agreement. But it seems that compassion could find some other route.
