"There is not one book in this bookstore that addresses that issue (Helping Teen Moms Graduate)"

--- Manager, Barnes & Noble

Until now. . . 

Helping Teen Moms Graduate is a much-needed resource for schools, families, and community organizations that support pregnant and parenting students as they strive to complete their education.

The U.S. high school graduation rate is surpassing 84% and hitting record highs, year after year, but this same progress does not ring true for a certain student population: teen mothers or pregnant and parenting students. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports only about 50% of teen mothers receive a high school diploma by age 22.

It's tempting to overlook this group because teen pregnancy rates are at a historic low; but the problem is hardly solved. The CDC reported in 2021, the number of live births to mothers aged 15-19 was 146,973.

We must support pregnant and parenting students as they strive to complete their education, and with less access to abortion, this teen birth rate among mothers 15-19 could potentially increase, creating a greater need for Helping Teen Moms Graduate: Strategies for Families, Schools, and Community Organizations.
