One of the needs of all young people is education. Becoming involved in the added responsibilities of marriage and/or pregnancy magnifies the necessity of acquiring adequate education or training. High school student marriage or pregnancy is still not looked upon with public favor, but education and training are highly approved goals for all teen-agers. As a result the public high school, by nature of its position, is being forced to deal with matters both approved of and disapproved of by society. The problem thus becomes, how can the school deal with this situation and make adjustments that will best accomplish the goal of providing for continuing education or training?
