Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Educators, school administrators, and others interested in providing or improving school services to pregnant teens and teen parents will find this handbook accessible and comprehensive. Topics covered include teen parents' right to an education, their special educational needs, curriculum design, staffing, and program evaluation. The authors are both teachers with a long history of work in the field, and Lindsay has written several books for young adults on relationships, pregnancy, adoption, and parenting. The pair use their own experience and examples of viable programs as the basis for their advice. Separate appendices provide resource guides, a list of organizations concerned with teen pregnancy, a checklist to evaluate your school's programming, sample activities, and examples of continuing education for teachers. This volume is thorough, easy-to-read, and offers sound advice. It is pro-student and stresses the many benefits to society of educating young parents. Those with parenting collections, collections that serve teachers, and young adult collections will want to include this book as part of their resources on teen pregnancy.Melissa Gross, Beverly Hills (CA) Public Library
