RACINE — Emilee Lockhart was voted the “most changed” person in Park High School’s class of 2013.
And it wasn’t only because she was seven months pregnant at graduation.
In that, she was among hundreds of students in the Racine Unified School District who face the prospect of becoming parents before senior prom.
While the reported number of pregnant or parenting Unified students has gone down in recent years, leaders of local organizations say teen pregnancy is a continuing issue with no simple solution.
Fewer pregnant students
The total number of Unified students who are parents has been dropping slowly, from 210 in 2010-11 to 177 in 2014-15.
