Description

Written for educators, researchers, and others who are concerned about the school and family needs of children of single parents, this book reviews demographic information and research findings published through the late 1980s, based on a research project conducted by Women's Action Alliance on a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. A comprehensive statistical profile of single-parent families reveals significant differences along different types of such families: never married, separated, divorced, and widowed. The author summarizes the home life and school life for one-parent children and presents a variety of types of assistance.
