If you are pregnant and thinking of dropping out of high school because of your pregnancy, please read this article. It may help. (It’s short, but I think very helpful.)
Are you pregnant? Is your high school offering you help?
The ACLU believes there is teen pregnancy discrimination. You definitely need to read http://www.aclu-wa.org/blog/teen-pregnancy-discrimination-and-dropout-rate . If your high school is not extending you services because you are pregnant, they may be guilty of discrimination under Title IX, a federal law.
Ever hear of Title IX and discrimination?
It’s the law of the land. Read about Title IX on Wikipedia.
Most people know about Title IX because it meant females were entitled to monies for sports just like their male counterparts. So basically all sports were funded in high schools and colleges, not just sports for men.
But apparently, Title IX also covers discrimination based on someone’s gender (pregnancy) in an educational institution.
