The Real Costs of Teen Motherhood

  • 23 Oct 2008
  • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
  • The University of Chicago Gleacher Center

Join Chapin Hall and Urban Institute  in examining the many costs and varied policy implications of teen motherhood. Panelists will discuss the effects teen childbearing has on the life trajectories of the mother and child, the costs to government agencies aiding teens' children, and the increased risks these children face, including maltreatment, being placed into foster care, and incarceration. Private and public programs that reduce teen pregnancy, help teen mothers avoid bearing a second child, and change teen behavior will be explored.
