A Historical Overview of the Research on the Effects of Remarriage Following Divorce on the Academic Achievement of Children.
Jeynes, William H.
School Community Journal, v8 n1 p23-30 Spr-Sum 1998
There is growing consensus about the negative effects of parental divorce and remarriage on children's academic achievement. Children of divorce from reconstituted families score the same or lower than those from single-parent families. Educators must not assume that remarriage benefits children or that single-parent homes are problematic. (47 references) (MLH)
