Parents arent to blame100%. A lot of moms do promote their teen girls looking older with hilites , pushup padded bras, fake nails, high heels, and fake nails however the parents arent to blame for teens being teens. Most everyone had sex at some point in high school but most of us were lucky enough know enough and use protection or not get anyone pregnant , dont be fooled by all of the people that say its what she was wearing cause girls had sex when knee knockers and turtle necks were in style.
If you wanna blame somebody blame the democratic media for promoting sex to youth

You have to be one of the most idiotic posters on this site! I would recommend consulting someone before you post such stupid responses! Democratic Media? Get a life!

Glad my kids are gone. I support West still and always will yet the way young girls are brought up today, its a wonder they all are not pregnant. Glad I don't have to deal with that.
One thing that makes things seem worse at West High is our location. True we are in the heart of the projects. I have heard it said west high is the projects school, public housing surrounds the school. Is that an issue, yes. We have all the under privileged kids,girls and that to makes a difference. Bad location, public housing kids and bad mothers that push their kids through puberty. Hate it but the truth is the truth.

There is no more teen pregnancy now than there ever was. It's just that it used to be handled with a shotgun wedding and then telling everybody that the baby came early.

The last I had heard, there was very little sex education at school - it is said to be the parent's job, but unfortunately parents aren't teaching it to their kids as much as they should. As for what little is taught in the school system, it is abstinence only. I would really like to see the system hire a person jsut to go around and teach sex ed, even if it is abstinence only. It may not be on a "t-cap" or "ACT" test, but we need to worry more about these kids and their future, not jsut test scores.

School will never take the place of parenting. You could teach and preach abstinence all day long, but as soon as the parents leave the teens home alone while they work or party or whatever, then kids are going to be kids. Lack of supervision is the biggest problem. Even then, once teenagers are able to drive, there's plenty of opportunity for them to have sex. At that point, they have to rely on their personal values. And guess where the values (or lack thereof) come from? It certainly isn't the school system.

there was zero "sex education in schools" back when the pregnancy rate was 90% less than it is now. It was all about values and fear then. Like my dad said to my boyfriends "if you value your life you will not touch my daughter inappropriately".

Bad news today my daughter came home and told me that there is a really key girls basketball player that just found out she was pregnant and hasn't even told her parents. Were counting on a good season, instead we will be going to baby showers. This girl had everything going for her, her father will die when he finds out. What are these kids thinking.

Again I tell you, west high is the towns project school. We are in the center of public housing district. Most of Our kids act like project kids. I hate it! To bad. Glad mine have graduated.
