Pregnant learners should be allowed to remain in school – Briones

To give them a chance to complete their studies, learners, who will find themselves pregnant while still in school, should never be turned away, Education Secretary Leonor Briones urged schools – both public and private.

“There are autonomous private schools so they have their own regulations but in general, we do not encourage expelling these learners,” she added.During the summit, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia described teenage pregnancy as a “national social emergency” because of its implications not just on the economy, but in dimensions of education and health – among others.

“The President, during a Cabinet meeting, has instructed us to organize this summit,” she said.This, she noted, greatly affects employment because when a child drops out of school, there are lesser career opportunities available to them.Briones also underscored the importance of “proper education” to help address teen pregnancy in the country.
