Single Parents, Working Mothers, and the Educational Achievement of School Children.
Milne, Ann M.; And Others
Sociology of Education, v59 n3 p125-39 Jul 1986
Presents new research which takes advantage of two nationally representative data bases. Results show that mother's employment and living in a one-parent family can have negative effects on school achievement, but that these effects differ by age, race, and family structure. Results also show the importance of mediating variables such as income and time use. (Author/JDH)
