dc.description.abstract This study examined the nature of educators’ experiences in dealing with teenage pregnancy. The study focused on educators in secondary schools in KwaZulu-Natal province of the Republic of South Africa. The researcher looked at teenage pregnancy as a major problem in the education system in South Africa. Educators are dealing with pregnant learners almost every day. More learners, mostly teenagers, fall pregnant while they are still at school. Educators have different experiences of such a problem. The study further examined the influence of educators’ biographical characteristics like age, gender, race, teaching experience, educational level and religious affiliation on their experiences in dealing with teenage pregnancy. The study further looked at the extent to which educators experience stress when dealing with teenage pregnancy in secondary schools. en_US
