dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to explore the past and present school experiences of pregnant and parenting female students to determine if these experiences influenced their decision to become pregnant and raise a child. Most research studies on the role of education for pregnant and parenting teens focus on program evaluation or critical analysis of the social "problem" of teenage pregnancy. Very little research exists on the self-perception of pregnant and parenting teens as students, including their academic history, successes, challenges and stmggles. This study was not to evaluate a particular system or program for educating pregnant and parenting adolescents, but rather to "give voice" to a unique and diverse population of female school students who are underrepresented in educational research.
