And there already is accommodations. That's the alternative school

The site wont work on my phone so i don't know what it says but my feelings are that a HS shouldn't have to do anything because HS students shouldn't have sex or babies.



Teenagers shouldn't have sex, but they do. Every day. All day. Every year. And some even manage to get pregnant.

If this was a teacher that needed a place to pump for her baby, she would have gotten it. How should that be any different for a teenager that wants to do the same thing for her child?

She would have plenty of time at breaks and lunch to pump and still get to class, especially once a routine is created.

Quoting Kimbyann:

Okay and if she misses those 15mins of class is it still going to be treated as an absent? Is she going to stay after school to make up the work?

I give my cousin who had her son at 16 so many props for BF him! I was so dumb at 21 still, and didn't BF my oldest or my 2nd. So thankful I woke up and BF my 3rd and currently my 4th. Shame on them!!

This post really annoys me. THIS is adding to the negative stigma breastfeeding gets. She is a great example for other young moms and her peers.

Really???? I went to catholic school, so students weren't supposed to have sex yet using birth control was wrong too... So if you got pregnant you couldn't even attend that school anymore.... That makes no sense. Just because its against the norm and best interest of a student to get pregnant, at least she's choosing to feed in the best interest of her child.

Well, if you listened to your school you wouldn't be in that situation

I wasn't...... Actually I knew no one who had to quit school because of pregnancy but ey probably just had abortion.

Us too . Do they not have one

Crazy. Here in my area, we have a school for teen moms that both the child and mother attend for up to two years. So these mothers are accommodated to nurse. Why can't there also be this kind of program everywhere?

I hate the fact that you can't seem to go against the groups opinions on these things or you seem like a bad person. Its my opinion that teens shouldn't have sex. That's that. You don't have to agree. But an alternative school IS an accommodation.
