Teen Pregnancy: Impact on the Scools. First Edition.
Weiner, Roberta, Ed.
This special report on the impact of teenage pregnancy on the schools is designed to help school administrators set up or revise teenage pregnancy or parenting programs in their schools. The first chapter analyzes a survey of over 700 school administrators on their attitudes toward the teenage pregnancy problem as pregnant teenagers move into the mainstream of society. The second chapter discusses the school's role in pregnancy prevention, including sex education, life planning, and school-based clinics. The third chapter discusses helping pregnant and parenting teenagers in the schools. Over one-third of the report is devoted to five case studies of successful school-based programs. These programs include a sex education and counseling program, a mini school and continuing education program for pregnant teenagers, an adolescent parenting program, a junior high decision making curriculum program, and a teenage theater program designed to help high school students make responsible decisions about sexuality and other issues. Each case study includes a program summary and list of contact persons. Appendices include a bibliography and a list of organizations which provide information to school districts. (ABL)
