Mulkey, Lynn M.; And Others
Sociology of Education, v65 n1 p48-65 Jan 1992
Analyzes the separate effects of father absence and mother absence on the grades and standardized test scores of high school students.

Concludes that students from single-parent homes are less willing or able to meet academic demands. (DK)
