Forced with few options with no where to turn to, many girls find various ways to get rid of the fetus. In a few cases, some simply disguise their bellies and hide their pregnancy from everyone, and the victim will start to make lost interest at school, absenteeism from school which resulted to low and failure on test and quizzes and finally prefers to stay home. As months move on, a teenage pregnant student will start to disguise their bellies and hide their pregnancy to their schoolmates and to everyone, but everything will not just end that way, the pressure must go on and being pregnant this will effect on their school development, others will decide to quit school for the main time and back to school after pregnancy.
Effects after pregnancy
Common Reasons behind Teenage Pregnancy in the Philippines, Oct 3rd, 2011; “Teenagers could possibly become pregnant as a result of the deficiency of decent educational programs, hindrances from being able to acquire birth control methods, sexual assault or rape, economic reasons, and cultural rituals and that is usually handed from family to another family. Teenage Pregnancy brings about life-changing outcomes and commitments. Their studies and also ambitions will most likely be hampered as they will need to concentrate their attention on parenting their child or supporting their new family.”
The above literature is relevance to the study for after mentioning the possible factors behind, it penetrated to the effects brought about by pregnancy against the school performance of the teenagers which would be temporarily hampered or it could be reason of total separation from school to give priority of rearing and parenting their incoming child.
Economic Status and Teenage pregnancy
(K. Torres, September 2012- National campaign to prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy) Teenage pregnancy is occurring in an adolescent girl between the ages of 13 to 19. Socioeconomic is one factor in which is the social-economic experiences that help mold one’s personality, attitudes and lifestyle. It can also define regions and neighborhoods. Socioeconomic factors also include the ethnicity, and sense of community.
Families with low economic status often have less success in preparing their young children for school because they typically don’t have access to promote, support young children’s development and provide them with everything they needed. Studies have shown that girls raised in poverty, in single-parent homes, and by parents with lower levels of education are more likely to be pregnant and to be teenage mothers.
Teens often feel pressure to make friends and fit in their peers during adolescence. Many times these teens let their friends influence their decision to have sex even though they do not fully understand the consequences associated with it. Teenagers have sex as a way to appear cool and sophisticated, but in some cases it ends up in unplanned teen pregnancy.
The literature of legal bases will help the researcher to understand that the present study is already a long thrust of the Philippine government. Ten years ago, the government thrust about teenage / children rights and protection were relied more through parents look out.
But today government intensifies their thrust of their welfare and that includes protection from teenage pregnancy with the cooperation of parents, teachers,community and an agency assigned by the government for that purpose.
The related literature both foreign and local had also given the researcher ideas and insights useful in carrying out her research process concerning the factors that triggers the teenage pregnancy and effects of teenage pregnancy to the school development of the students.Furthermore, these foreign and local studies provided the researcher an opportunity to compare her work with the existing work related to her study in order to strengthen or back-up of her recent findings and make solid framework of her new discovery related to “teenage pregnancy.”
