Women with children in the U.S. often drop out of high school, and the country has limited opportunities for those women who want to complete their high school diploma requirements. To understand what options might be possible for these young women who have dropped out of traditional high school, this study explored young women's experiences in online schools in the United States in their quest to achieve a high school diploma. This study investigated the online learning experiences for young women with and without children in the United States in order to determine if their experiences helped those young mothers to complete the high school requirements, obtain a diploma, and then go on for further education in college and better opportunities in workplace.
Data for the study were collected through survey questions that were distributed to young women with and without children who are currently enrolled in online high schools. Results of this study provide valuable information about the online learning experiences of young women with and without children that might be applied to improving educational avenues for young mothers in the U.S. and in general.
