Robinson, Quintin L.; Werblow, Jacob
Multicultural Perspectives, v15 n4 p202-208 2013
This study examines the ways single Black mothers contribute to the educational success of their 11th-grade sons, despite the fact that their sons are enrolled in "failing schools." Data from five interviews and one focus group reveal common characteristics of how single-Black mothers help their sons beat the odds.
