Collie, Rebecca J.; Perry, Nancy E. – Australian Educational Researcher, 2019

At the same time, the Earned Income Tax Credit has offered a monetary incentive for low-income parents to work. Thus, unlike some of the other two-generation mechanisms discussed in this issue of…

Lasseter, Austin – ProQuest LLC, 2013
