Do you think that it is okay for high schools to build a day care in there schools for young teens who are pregnant?

Report as

my high school had a day care in it, and all us girls did not think that it was okay to go off and get pregnant, I think that it was to assist the young mothers by giving them a chance to still get an education but they had to work in the day care in order to get free day care for their baby's, I thought it was awesome because more mothers were going to school and learning more about what it was going to take to be a working single mom who is in college or something like that I believe it gives them hope back

My high school had an early childhood education class, which also was a full functioning day care - though it was more for the general public, rather than student mothers. Personally I think it's a good idea though, if it will help keep them in school, so they can get their diploma, rather than dropping out.

Umm. I'm sympathetic. Incredibly sympathetic. I hate government interference with anything but National Defense so I'm gonna say no, but i DO think that a daycare for teens w/ children would be an awesome non-profit. If you want to start one in San Diego or Boise I will volunteer. Also, I think more emphasis on NOT having sex until you're an adult is necessary in our culture. There is no contraceptive that is 100% fool proof.

I have to disagree with Girlhascurls here, when a school teaches you nothing but abstinence it creates fools who do not know consequences. My school had turned the old highschool into an alternative ed for kids who couldn't do a full course load, were failing and could get more help and teen moms because they had a day care there. I don't think it's wrong because they are getting an education so they may give a better life to their child. If I were in that situation I would have done daycare too so that I could get a diploma.
