Defying the odds or reaffirming the statistics?

The 16 & Pregnant franchise was originally conceived with the intention of informing teenage girls about the harsh realities of becoming a mother before you had reached adulthood. The incentive to do so is clear: an increase in the average age women give birth means an increase in the likelihood that those same women will go on to be successful. According to StayTeen, “less than 2% of teen moms earn a college degree by age 30.” The odds are undoubtedly stacked against young mothers. With that in mind, how did the stars of MTV’s 16 & Pregnant fare?
