    It was a trap?

    65 Girls At Area School Pregnant
    School To Unveil Three-Prong Program

    POSTED: 12:30 pm EDT August 23, 2005

    CANTON, Ohio -- There are 490 female students at Timken High School, and 65 are pregnant, according to a recent report in the Canton Repository.

    The article reported that some would say that movies, TV, videogames, lazy parents and lax discipline may all be to blame.

    School officials are not sure they what has caused so many pregnancies, but in response to them, the school is launching a three-prong educational program to address pregnancy, prevention and parenting.

    The newspaper also reported that students will face mounting tensions created by unplanned child-rearing responsibilities, causing students to quit school and plan for a GED. This will make it difficult for the Canton City School District to shake its academic watch designation by the state.

    According to the Canton Health Department, statistics through July show that 104 of the 586 babies born to Canton residents in Aultman Hospital and Mercy Medical Center had mothers between 11 and 19.

    The newspaper reports that the non-Canton rate was 7 percent. Canton was 15 percent.

          In the late 80's (86-88) I can think of about 4 or 5 girls in all of my highschool (approx 1,200 students) that became pregnant during my junior and senior years.

            they're not sure what's causing the pregnancies?

            it really says that?

              I'd say unprotected sex is probably to blame.

                Same here but I think there were only 2 or 3 and they usually left school before they got too far along.

                  Abstinence works!!

                  a three-prong educational program to address pregnancy, prevention and parenting
                  I am thinking that would have been a good idea BEFORE they got pregnant.

                    There's a town near me that's always been known to have a ridiculously high pregnancy rate in its high school. It was considered a jackpot if you were dating a girl from there because it was all but guaranteed you'd be getitng laid.

                      Gotta stay focused on those short term goals.

                        I went to the Canton Repository website and cannot find the original article. Did anyone else?

                        I also went to the school district site and didn't find any mention of this.

                          Probably because teen promiscuity isn't a good selling point for school districts.
