A Continuing Education Program for School Age Pregnant Girls.
Harford-Cecil Supplementary Education Center, Havre de Grace, MD.
Developed by two county school systems in a semirural area to serve pregnant girls, the program provided small class instruction and individual tutoring in one county and telephonic teaching in the other. Staff included academic, remedial, and business teachers and medical, psychological, and social personnel; a director coordinated the various services. Girls served had a mean age of 16, were predominately white, and did not come from broken, large, or welfare families. Nearly half were married; all had received regular prenatal care. Cooperation on the part of students, parents, and schools was judged outstanding; the home schools reported no deficiencies in the teaching of returning girls. Statistical and subjective data are supplied; counseling is discussed. (JD)
