A Discussion of State Laws and State and Local Policies as They Relate to Education of Pregnant School-Age Girls. Information Series #3.
This report discusses the problems with which pregnant students are faced when dealing with State laws and State and local policies regarding their status and treatment. According to the author, key considerations for any State or local policy involve (1) the pregnant student's rights and her relationship to the regular school, (2) alternatives available to pregnant students outside the regular school program, (3) the issues of choice among the above alternatives, and (4) the responsibility of the school to work with community agencies to see that a girl has access to needed social and medical services. Also provided are samples of State legislation, State and local policies, and court cases affecting pregnant students. Related documents are EA 004 728, EA 004 729, EA 004 730, and EA 004 732.
