Sierra Leone: Separate classes for pregnant girls raise questions

Pregnant students in Sierra Leone are not allowed to sit in the same class as their peers because they're seen as a bad influence.

In 2015, the government gave them the option of attending alternative schools with a reduced curriculum.

Amnesty International says denying pregnant girls mainstream education is a violation of their human rights.
