Life in "Progress" City - Memphis edition

  • Approximately 90 students at Frayser High School are pregnant or have recently given birth
  • The startling numbers fall in line with high teen pregnancy rates in the entire Frayser community
  • A new initiative to help combat the problem will soon be introduced

(Memphis 1/13/2011) About 90 students at a Memphis High School are either pregnant, or have been recently.

The startling news was confirmed by a high ranking city official and comes as the community plans to roll out a new initiative to help combat the problem.

However, one Frayser High School graduate says teen pregnancy is not a new problem for the school.

It's no problem as long as you don't mind living a life of poverty.
