KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind., May 24 (UPI) -- An Indiana high school said a teacher will not be invited back next year after he tried to insert a "pregnant girls" section into the yearbook.

Knightstown High School Principal Scott Ritchie said English teacher K.C. Salter, who attempted to put a section in the yearbook showcasing the pregnant students at the school, will be allowed to finish the school year and will still help with the yearbook, but under close supervision, WISH-TV, Indianapolis, reported Monday.

"There had been a student who had taken offense to being approached by another student wanting to take a picture. That student got upset and we responded firmly and seized the operation that was going on and performed and investigation from that point," Ritchie said.

The school district said Salter will not be returning next year due to "poor performance."
