Mahaffy, Kimberly A.; Ward, Sally K.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v46 n11-12 p403-17 Jun 2002
Examined the relationship of gender to adolescents' educational and childbearing plans, interdependence of plans, and differential effects of gender and social context. Data from the High School and Beyond Sophomore Cohort Study indicated that girls, but not boys, expected the timing of childbearing to affect educational attainment. Educational plans had a greater positive effect on girls' childbearing plans. Family and school contexts differentially affected girls' and boys' plans. (Contains references.) (SM)
