Decent Essays
Jessie Detherage, my sister, had a kid before she got out of high school. She is still having a hard time getting her diploma. With the stress of being a mother and high school many teenage mothers drop out. Having a school daycare would help mothers focus on school work and their diploma. Schools should provide daycare to assist teenage mothers. It helps mothers get their diploma.The national campaign said that only half of teenage mothers get their diploma. What is good about this program is that the mothers can come to school drop off their kid(or kids),and head off to class. According to the national campaign to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy nearly 33.3% of teenage girls who dropped out of school said it was because of pregnancy.
