An Alternative Program for Pregnant Schoolgirls.
Link, Patricia W.
The paper describes the Lafayette Parish Homebound Program (Louisiana) for students in grades K-12, with particular emphasis on the program's services for pregnant girls. Procedures for admitting students into the program, objectives for the pregnant girls (12-18 years old), and program components are considered. It is explained that the special class for pregnant girls operates as an alternative educational program to the regular school program. Accountability studies are noted to reveal that approximately 80% of the program participants completed their educations and were gainfully employed. (SBH)
