Nationally, pregnancy is the number one reason teen girls drop out of high school. Only 50% of teen moms have a high school diploma by age 22 compared with 90% of girls who did not have a teen pregnancy. In addition, only 38% of girls having a child before 18 will earn their high school diploma and fewer than 2% earn a college degree.
