That plan of yours is nothing special, i also was pointing about something similar.
What about the ones that receive huge amounts of support? Obviously those young mothers don't get on streets. Its not like they are in filthy 3rd world country, we are talking about civilized nations like USA. I know its bad, but yet people care about them, parents, relatives and such. If they take care of the baby then sure this young mother can educate herself. Don't speak like you know the majority of teen moms out there, of course there are ones who lose everything because of the pregnancy. If people are serious about achieving something in their life, nothing will become an obstacle not even a pregnancy.
Pregnancy when you are not prepared for it can be and many times IS an obstacle but that is not to say there aren't young mothers out there who overcome that obstacle and go on to have successful careers. However, the statistics do show that many young mothers do severely limit themselves in future choices. It's doable but it's much easier without a child being completely dependent on you.

Also. You want to educate girls yet they are exposed to the internet and its dark side capable of destroying ones healthy mind, yet you have stupid lame reality shows like 16 and pregnant which clearly shows that its ok to fall pregnant at such young age, your media is also hugely to blame for this issue, for early sexualisation of teens, the pressure is big. Educate girls? What about educating boys also?
It's very necessary to educate boys as well, I believe Ocean (correct me if I'm wrong Ocean) focuses on girls because they are the ones that have to deal with the physical, emotional and sometimes financial consequences of an unplanned pregnancy, rather than boys, who can simply walk away.
