Abstract:

How do future expectations interact with achievement to influence adolescent girls’ likelihood of engaging in unprotected first sex? Recent scholarship has considered the role high schools play as a key institutional setting for adolescent development and the transition to adulthood, yet little is known about how schools relate to risk-taking in sexual activity. Prior scholarship demonstrates that high educational expectations, achievement, and school experiences can lower adolescent girls’ likelihood of engaging in risky sexual behaviors. However, the joint influence of these related factors is unknown. Further, adolescent future expectations can be inflated or deflated in relation to high school academic experiences and college preparation, which might influence probabilities of unprotected first sex. Using National Educational Longitudinal Study (NELS:88) data, I find that academic coursework serves as a buffer from engaging in unprotected first sex. Future expectations interact with achievement: those with inflated or deflated expectations (based on their achievement) and those with low expectations generally, are especially likely to engage in unprotected sex.
