Adolescent Childbearing: Whose Problem? What Can We Do?
Scott-Jones, Diane
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n3 pK1-K12 Nov 1993
Understanding of adolescent child-bearing and efforts to ameliorate attendant problems are diminished by unexamined, emotionally charged beliefs regarding race, poverty, gender. Adolescent birth rates that declined from 1970s to 1980s were sharper for African Americans. However, sexually active adolescents in comparison countries have fewer pregnancies. Comprehensive sex-education programs must be balanced by programs focused on educational and career aspirations. (MLH)
