Mostly because when you're seventeen you aren't financially able to care for you child on your own. You finished high school, great. But you can't go to college because you have a baby to look after, which lowers your chances of a well paying career significantly.
This is thankfully becoming less and less true though. A lot of colleges are opening day cares for moms in college. As a mom you can usually get more from financial aid to cover day care costs. And most people can get on well with an Associates degree. A couple years at a community college is what most businesses are satisfied with. It's cheaper than university anyways.
There are also tons of online programs or online classes (especially for AA) at a traditional college. One of my good friends had her first at 16 and her second at 19. She is 22 now and has one more semester left for her BSBA degree and is also getting married (to the baby daddy) this spring. People just don't want to see a teenager being more successful and mature than themselves, in my opinion.
