Poverty, Rape, Adult/Teen Sex: Why "Pregnancy Prevention" Programs Don't Work.
Males, Mike
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n5 p407-10 Jan 1994
Stephen Caldas assumes that modern "teenage" sex and pregnancy are deviant, isolatable behaviors. However, teenage and adult sexual behaviors are so intertwined at the personal and societal levels that there is no distinct teenage phenomenon amenable to school intervention. Attempting to preach values contradicting the values adults practice is futile. High youth poverty rates precede high teenage childbearing rates. (MLH)
