Unwed, Pregnant Teacher Fired By Catholic School Is Unsuccessful In Her Appeal

A unwed, pregnant teacher who was fired from a Catholic school in Northumberland County will not get her job back. The Bishop of the Diocese of Harrisburg has denied Naiad Reich's appeal. Reich was let go from Lourdes Regional School near Shamokin after telling the principal she was expecting. A member of the school board retained a lawyer from Philadelphia to help Reich get reinstated, but the Diocese of Harrisburg says the firing stands.
