Romo, Laura F.; Segura, Denise A.
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v15 n1-2 p173-185 2010
Within the last decade, births to unmarried women in the United States have risen dramatically, presenting challenges for young women to complete high school and attend college. This article presents a review of programs and services designed to support single mothers in completing high school and accessing postsecondary education. We highlight both problematic and effective aspects of these programs with particular attention to whether they support the educational access of Latinas and African American single mothers. (Contains 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
