Abstract Objective: To describe the educational profile of adolescents who experienced parenting. Method: It is a descriptive study with quantitative approach developed between 2008 and 2009, with 204 adolescents, of both sexes who experienced parenting. The data collecting took place from a questionnaire referring to social and demographic variables and was organized and tabulated using the software EPI-INFO 6.04. Results: The age average was between 17 and 19 years old, 80% of adolescents did not attend school and 58,3% had not finished primary school, the reasons were due to their jobs and pregnancy. Conclusion: The adolescents have demonstrated low schooling due to conciliation of parenting and studies. It is evident the necessity of new ways of orientating these adolescents to return and/or keep educational activities as an example of human dignity for themselves and their children.
