Teens in foster care are more likely to become pregnant than other Texas youth, report finds



2018-04-16T14:34:33+0000

In fiscal year 2017, the Texas foster care system served 50,293 youth. The pregnancy rate for teens in foster care is almost 5 times as high as the rate for other Texas girls ages 13-17, according to a report from an advocacy group.

The pregnant foster youth are also less likely to receive prenatal or postnatal care, and their babies are more likely to be of low birth weight.

That game led to one of hell of a night.

Best game ever 💪🏻💪🏻

Marcela Galvan

Remember the sounds exiting the Jones! Fireworks Honking all up and down university Ave and 4th St Chanting raider power! Legendary

Kyle Walsdorf

what about Dave Parks???? Overall Number One pick by The 49ers

Armando Garcia III

Crab and graham and that team were legendary like the 2018 tech b-ball team that made it to the elite 8. Those were the days man. Football raider relevancy. The New Yorker actually wrote an article about the team and we were a consistent top 25 team. People outside of Texas actually knew about our fun offenses and crazy games. at least we have basketball and baseball.

Steve Perez, Nava hated this pick

My favorite game ever!

I've always been curious about the amount of crashes caused by mechanical failure. Any numbers on that?

It should read "Keep your Head up and Live " You Text/Talk while driving you might DIE! We all know that no one is enforcing the law when it comes to texting and talking on the cell phone so why not be real and tell them what could happen!!! The lady driving this car admitted to reading a text.... The crash happened in front of my home!

What about crashes that are caused because you TX DOT have not properly striped roads that are under construction and you can't figure out which lane you are supposed to be in? I am referring specifically to Highway 290, outbound, between Senate and West/Eldridge exits.

I bet that was a mess!!!

Houston’s infrastructure is horrible I’ve lived here my whole entire life my whole families from here all the way back to my great great great grandma

If you think Houston is bad, try LA, NYC, or the Windy City. Never lived in either, but I know Houston like the back of my hand and been alllllll over the others. When I come back home from those places I appreciate Houson traffic soooooo much

How many more decades until I-35W in FT. Worth is finished between I-30 & N. Tarrant Pkwy?

you broke it, so now you fix it! Like the crane running into one of our bridges here in El Paso and now it will be closed for awhile!

...and then bridge repair to last into the fall. js

So this is why we took 59 instead

Man

You've got this!

What about the family with husband and wife both working to help put 3 kids thru college at the same time ?

All this while tuition rates go up for everyone else.

Great Job UT ! The Repubs in Mississippi just raised College tuitions again for the coming year . Every year they do this , making it harder for young Mississippians who come from poor Families to attend College . The pay is last in America in Mississippi .

Oh that’s why tuition is going up 😒

I’m 30yrs old single with a son. I lost my husband a year ago in a car accident. Seen I lost my husband I lost everything in me??? Looking for a serious relationships with trust lead to married. Thanks😊

What do the current students receive who were told a month or so ago that their tuition is increasing by 2% starting this Fall?

Price discrimination. A wonderful way to maximize revenue. 😢

How about when I went on staff as a clinical specialist mentor, received 3 hours of graduate classes for every two semesters I taught as compensation. After four semesters I went to use my earnings and signed up for 6 hours only to be told I could only use 3 per semester. I had signed up for the classes. I had to figure out had to come up with the 4 figures to cover the other 3 hours. That was the start to the nightmare that was grad school. None of these stipulations were in the original agreement.

There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Where was this my freshman year?? XD Taylor Reed

Jennifer O'Neil. Hope this keeps up.

Awesome

Juany Guera Lopez jaja nombre hubiera ido aquí

Veronica V V Davis I could have gotten free tuition if I didn’t work. Look at 15 seconds

No that was that mentally unstable woman Hannah Rose Bainter, she was in the Bill Archer Fellowship and now she’s working on the east coast which how is that even possible when she physically assaulted her mom. You are right anyone that meets her knows somethings off
