Pregnant 11 year old to sit Common Entrance

A pregnant eleven year old from the community of Micoud will have an opportunity to sit the Common Entrance examination, Education Minister, Doctor Robert Lewis has disclosed.

“We must not terminate the child’s education in any way,” Lewis told reporters.

He said while his Ministry would leave the issues pertaining to the pregnancy to the Department of Human Services and the police, it is supportive of the child.

“We want the child and the parents to know that we as a ministry discussed it,” Lewis said.

He explained that he could not say what the exact arrangements will be, but asserted that he was almost certain that there will be a special arrangement for her.

The grade six student allegedly admitted to having sex with a seventeen year old.
