  • i dont think teens mom should be in public shcools . it looks bad, and is dangerous! they should have a seperate school for those girls. a seperate, safe place that they can get the education and help that they need, why take money from the sports,arts music classes in high schools that 90% of the other kids work hard to be in to pay for the few that made a mistake

  • That sounds awesome. I think that would give young moms an incentive to stay in school, and that is the best thing they can do. If you can get the funds for it, I say go for it. How wonderful that someone is wanting to help these moms make something of themselves AND take care of their children, rather than bashing them and expecting them to go without and ultimately fail.
