This article reports on a Children's Defense Fund study of the relationship between academic education and teenage pregnancy. Using NLSY data, the study finds that "young women with poor or fair basic skills are three to four times as likely as those with average skills to have more than one child while in their teens -- a pattern that remains consistent for black, white and Hispanic teen-agers."
