Schools, Society, and "Teen" Pregnancy.
Males, Mike
Phi Delta Kappan, v74 n7 p566-68 Mar 1993
Reality of widespread adult/teen sex--as revealed through age-specific pregnancy, birth, and sexually transmitted disease (STD) statistics--has profound implications for public school sex education and efforts to reduce incidence of teen pregnancy and STDs. Many public school "prevention" measures have failed because male half of "teen" pregnancy population are adults. Schools are responsible for helping pregnant girls continue their education. (MLH)
