The Single-Parent Child in the Classroom.
Randall, Kay L.
In order to assess the needs of single-parent children and how schools should meet these needs, the author examined and individually annotated numerous research studies. The introduction includes a statement of the problem, the purpose and organization of the study, and definitions of terms. The bulk of the paper consists of the collection of annotated research studies which are divided into four areas: problems encountered by single parents; effects of divorce and behaviors of single-parent children in the classroom; implications of the increasing number of children from single-parent homes for schools and teachers; and types of counseling available to single-parent children. A summary of the results of the research studies is provided and conclusions and recommendations are drawn. Appendices include suggestions on how schools and teachers can meet the special needs of single-parent children and an annotated bibliography of selected literature for children, teens, and parents.
