Students that lack motivation will fall behind and drop out because it would take too much effort to graduate. Teen pregnancy is a reason why some females drop out of high school. Teen parents struggle to take care of their child, go to school, keep a job, and have social life. They just cut out going to school because cutting friends out would make them bored at home.
Since they already had a job they have no motivation to get a higher education.
