It would seem to me that its not just the girl who was impregnated by her Principal that needs crisis counselling. In addition to pre natal therapy & a few educational intiatives about how to raise her child properly, she'll need family supports and such. Now the ex-Principal who is the acknowledged father should set up a trust account for the child, court mandated that is, in addition to any offerings or actual monies he has paid out already.
He may be a monster & he may have violated the student/teacher relationship, but he should have full access to the child, so that she knows who he is. Supervised visits in which he plays with the child need to be arranged. Tell the child that she should be proud of their metis heritage, etc. Since he canot teach anymore, he should find employment that is suitable and take courses in sexual sensitivy for men. Perhaps through a sexual assault centre or hospital. He needs to not just be a man, he needs to own up to his former student that their sexual parlour games were inappropriate.
He also needs to tell his wife & family that he strayed. He has to become a better dad not just to his first family, but out of clear deference & respect to his lover & former student & their child.
