Abstract: Development is not only an economic phenomenon, but a multidimensional process that combines economic and social aspects of society. Firstly, pregnancy of schoolchildren is a social problem and can therefore constitute an obstacle to development. Secondly, in this article, we try to assess the prevalence of school-related pregnancies, their consequences, and to profile these adolescents and young people who are victims of the phenomenon, in order to facilitate the implementation of schooling policies. Our data come from the survey conducted by the National School of Statistics, Planification and Demography in april-may 2016. Results from our analyzes show that, in total, about 155 pregnancies have been recorded in the last three school years (2013-2014, 2014-2015 and 2015-2016) and that these pregnancies are increasingly distributed over the three school years. The majority of pregnancies occur between the ages of 15 and 17 (54.19%) in seconde and the 5th classes of secondary school. About 70% of women who become pregnant stop going to school, but only 7% of those who stop, return to school after childbirth.
