Pregnant and Parenting Teens: Keeping Them in School. A Resource Packet.
Kolb, Frances Arick
This resource packet provides an overview of the wide variety of approaches used by educators, government officials, minority organizations, and foundations to reduce teenage pregnancy or to help teenagers who are pregnant or are parents stay in school. The first section lists, describes and gives the addresses and possible contact person of national organizations providing advocacy, publicity, and materials on teenage pregnancy. The second section (arranged by state) describes statewide initiatives and programs in New England and New York, outlining legislative proposals, policy recommendations, educational opportunities and other services resulting from these initiatives. The third section describes local programming on teenage pregnancy and parenting in the areas of prevention of teenage pregnancy and services whose goals may be educational or health related. The final section is a three-page bibliography on these topics: research/statistics on teenage pregnancy; resources on services for teenagers who are parents or pregnant; and curriculum and other materials for teenagers.
