Father Absence, Educational Preparedness, and Academic Achievement: A Test of the Confluence Model.
Fowler, Patrick C.; Richards, Herbert C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v70 n4 p595-601 Aug 1978
Father-present and father-absent lower class Black kindergarteners were tested in school readiness, and two years later in academic achievement. Predictions of academic deficits due to early and continuing parental absence, as derived from Zajonc's and Markus's confluence model, were only partially supported. (Author/GDC)
