It’s difficult to juggle homework and parenthood. More than 6,000 Wisconsin teens gave birth in 2006. Nationally, about half of teenagers who get pregnant will drop out of school.
Teen moms in Madison have another option.
The School Age Parent Program or SAPAR was founded almost four decades ago to help teen moms stay in school.
The full-day program allows teen moms to successfully juggle class, doctor’s appointments and motherhood.
