And this is what shows like 16 & Pregnant bring you.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) – As Memphis City Schools leaders discuss the best way to deal with the crisis at Frayser High School, one young student is dealing with parenthood.

The Action News 5 Investigators recently discovered 90 girls who attend Frayser High School are now pregnant or have already had a baby this school year.

Frayser is in Memphis City School Board member Stephanie Gatewood’s district. She said a former principal of the school first sounded the alarm about the issue about a year ago.

Sources told Action News 5 there is a massive initiative in the works dedicated to preventing teen pregnancy in the Frayser community. The initiative will include after-school and in-school programs funded with grant money and run by a local nonprofit that already does some work for city schools.

Gatewood said there are programs right now to help students.

“Noting that our young ladies absolutely did not get pregnant in the hallways of our schools,” said Gatewood. “So while everything that happens in our communities, it just spills over into our schools. Now we as a community have to deal with them.”
