Should schools provide daycare to assist teenage moms?

  • Why not they would need it

    Mothers need there education.It would behard for them if they had to drop out.At my school there is so many teen mothers that need help.At least 50% teen mothers drop out of school becuase of pregancy.It is so hard for them to deal with because some teen fathers leave the mother ju

  • Less drop-outs and abortions

    When teenage mothers have their children, they need to take care of them. In doing this, they cannot just take a break from taking care of their babies during school hours. This causes teenagers to drop-out of school in order to take care of their children. The teenagers will then not be able to finish high school, preventing them an education, and less probability of being able to get a job and support their babies in the future. In knowing this could happen, some teenagers get abortions instead. Killing their own child. The child that could find a cure for cancer, or create the space ship that lands on Mars, or becomes president. Daycare in schools, funded by the government is not a lot to ask. In doing this, it saves the life of a mother, possible father, and child.

  • Don't set her up for failure

    If you teach them abstience-only education, if you put restrictions on birth control or make it expensive, if you prevent them from getting an abortion, if you cut welfare so they can't pay for daycare...Then why would you try to further prevent her education and limit her success in life?

  • The moms need their education

    I agree with schools needing to provide daycare to assist teenage moms. Moms are not getting the education they need. Sometimes a couple of moms do go back to school to graduate.The moms won't have a good chance of getting to go to college because they are taking care of their children. Most moms are quitting high school and going back to get their GED. They need to provide daycare for the babies.

  • Cost of the program

    It is way too expensive and cuts out of the school's budget, Affecting a lot of students and teachers pay checks. Also, It affects students because they may not get as many school supplies because the school was too busy trying to get enough money from taxpayers to pay for the problem.

  • Not at all.

    This simply gives teens a good reason to get pregnant. They get day care practically for free. If a school sets up a daycare, the message is to the teens that it's ok to get pregnant because the school will help them take care of their new offspring. It's not right.
