Teen Pregnancy

Featured in Top Stories

In 2008 more than twice as many teenage girls gave birth in Oklahoma as were in the combined fall freshman classes of OU and OSU. So far this year more than 5,000 teens have given birth. For one in five it wasn't her first child. That has the health department and some school districts looking for new ways to prevent teen pregnancies. In both 2010 and 2011 the State Health Department spent just under $430,000 on teen pregnancy prevention education. Since participation is not mandatory, only schools in Ottawa and Pittsburg counties used the programs. In January, schools in Hughes, Choctaw and McCurtain counties will begin offering courses. Schools in Tulsa and Oklahoma counties use the federally funded "prep" program.

No one knows how many of them there are or even where they live. They are children of all ages and descriptions who are the innocent victims of crimes committed by their parents. Most of the help these children receive comes from non-profit groups and churches. Now, a legislative task force is investigating the growing problem.

Homeschool Rules (10:18)

Featured in Top Stories

An estimated 20,000 students are homeschooled statewide each year. In Oklahoma, parents are not required to prove they are homeschooling or how well they are educating their children. Homeschool advocates want to keep it that way but that opens up questions about whether the state is fulfilling its obligation under the law to ensure all children are properly educated.

Sex Offenders (16:38)

Featured in Top Stories

Laws designed to let police and the public know where convicted sex offenders live after leaving prison are about to get fresh scrutiny at the State Capitol. The laws restrict where sex offenders can live and determine how long they must register after serving their sentence. Some in law enforcement say the laws have no teeth because sex offenders who fail to register seldom face stiff penalties. While others claim the laws encourage sex offenders to avoid registering just so they can find a place to live after leaving prison.
