  • Keeping teen moms in school

    Boston Globe - 05/31/2016

    Last year, roughly 700 teenage moms across the Commonwealth left high school. The consequence of not ensuring they make it to graduation day is far-reaching for them, for their new babies, and for Massachusetts.

    Without a high school diploma or equivalency exams, young mothers are locked out of high-paying, skilled jobs. Compared to peers who graduate, dropouts make about $9,000 less a year, according to Northeastern University.
