Principal quits in tiff over 'pact'

August 13, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A high school principal who set off a furor after being quoted as saying that teenage girls had formed a pact to get pregnant has resigned.

Time magazine reported in June that Joseph Sullivan said a pact made by a group of teens to get pregnant and raise their babies together was partly behind an increase in pregnancies at Gloucester High School. Seventeen girls at the school became pregnant this year -- four times the usual number.

Sullivan said he would retire effective Friday.
