It got more intense when religious leaders took part and sides regarding this issue. Most times people think religious leaders should be impartial especially regarding sensitive issues as these.
Well, regardless of all the ongoing debates, everyone is right in their capacity. However, we should look at the future now! Obviously, it was wrong and is wrong to get pregnant especially while still in school as a matter of fact, high school.
Refusing these girls to go school though is more dangerous. There could arise more issues than this if these girls stay home.
It gets easier for most young people to give up on school if they stay away for so long. Already they have been home for two years, another year would really be harmful.
Schools should find a way of accommodating these girls in school. Let their dreams not die just because of that mistake. Especially if she is willing to go to school, allow her study.
Keeping these girls in schools will ensure they don’t decide to get married because of redundancy. Most times if such situations are not clearly handled, such girls end up in early marriages.
Clearly, the negative effects of keeping these girls away out weighs the positives. This should be looked into.
