Case Study
In Florida 125 students, ages 15, 16, and 17, were given a timed a essay on whether they thought teen pregnancy was a problem in their community. The essays were submitted anonymously, giving only their gender and age.

“Everywhere I look in high school, either someone is pregnant or has had a kid”

- Both females (34) and males (7) wrote that pregnancy could “mess up” or “ruin” teens lives.

- “A child being raised by another child is never a good thing.”
