Groundbreaking Report Proposes Solutions to Teen Parenthood and Dropout

The Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy released its report Expecting Success: How Policymakers and Educators Can Help Teen Parents Stay in School. The report presents findings and policy recommendations based on data collected from teen parents, teen parent service providers and educators. The research presented in this report reveals that many teens who were headed toward dropping out become re-committed to school once they become parents, but that these youth need family, schools, and teen parent programs that both support them and set high expectations for their success.
