Continuing Education and Supportive Comprehensive Services to School Age Mothers, 1970--1972. Final Evaluation Report.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI. Dept. of Educational Research and Program Assessment.
This project provides educational services to school-age mothers not attending a regular school to allow them to continue their education without interruption and to reduce their tendency to drop out. In close communication with school counselors and social workers, the program facilitates academic progress toward graduation and return to the regular school program by promoting the following goals: (1) to encourage the pregnant student to continue her education during pregnancy, to return to school, and to complete requirements for a high school diploma; (2) to educate the student and her family regarding the physical and emotional phenomena of pregnancy, health care of self and infant, and available health services; (3) to educate student and family regarding social agency services; and (4) to secure community support for a continued and expanded program. The report concludes with recommendations concerning programs for school-age mothers. (Author/LAA)
