Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Personal problems continue to be of overwhelming concern to high school students (Olson, 1979). Every year more students below age 18 run away from home. Millions of students abuse alcohol and other drugs. The Department of Health reports one teen in 20 has a drinking problem. Suicide is the second leading cause of death of people ages 15 to 24. Olson (1979) further states that unwanted pregnancies among teenagers have increased, and that about 25 percent of all babies born today are born to teenagers. Child abuse has become a major social problem.
