Supporting Teen Mothers In School Completion and Academic Engagement


  • Rebecca Mohr, Graduate Student, University of Washington


The goal of this literature review was to gather and synthesize practices for supporting teenage mothers in accessing education and high school completion. Historically, school supports for adolescent moms have included voluntary placement in alternative schools, modified expectations, and case management. Schools can begin helping teen moms by providing social and emotional support through teachers, case managers, peer groups, and by creating a culture free of stigma and shame. Making connections with community partners who can offer resources to pregnant or parenting girls is another way schools can aid this population of students.
