This Human Rights Watch report provides information on the status of laws, policies, and practices that block or support pregnant or married girls’ access to education. Findings suggest that despite the positive steps made by some African countries to tackle the barriers that lead to teenage pregnancy and school dropout, a significant number still impose laws and policies that directly discriminate against pregnant girls and adolescent mothers in education. The report also provides recommendations for reforms.
