Journal of Marriage and the Family, v59 n3 p734-46 Aug 1997
Reviews existing theoretical perspective on how single-parent families and stepfamilies affect student achievement by examining math and reading achievement scores.

These negative effects are countervailed when social relations among parents are strong. (RJM)
