Office for Civil Rights (ED), Washington, DC.
This pamphlet has been prepared for elementary and secondary school administrators, teachers, counselors, parents, and students. It describes school retention problems associated with teenage pregnancy and parenthood and the requirements pertaining to these issues contained in the U.S. Department of Education regulation implementing Title IX. Statistics on births to teenagers, the overall dropout rate, and dropout rate for females because of pregnancy, marriage, or parenthood are provided. The pamphlet also includes information on approaches and programs that schools have developed to address the educational needs of students who become pregnant, get married, or have children while still in school. The approaches are grouped under those applicable for administrators, those for teachers, and those for counselors. Types of programs described include prenatal care programs; parenting skills programs; day care programs; and dropout prevention programs. It is noted that these approaches and programs, however, are not legal requirements under Title IX.
