Teenage mothers' school

Teenage mothers' school

Seventeen-year-old Rebecca Duffy holds her five-month-old daughter Charlotte at Eden Campus school for teenage mothers in Mt Eden, Auckland, in March 2007. Teen parent units operate under the governance of an existing school. They offer young, school-age pregnant women and mothers an opportunity to continue their studies in an environment where their children are also cared for.
