OF MORE SCHOOL NOSINESS
This chart is a sad commentary on something that, unfortunately, is easily observed in many public schools today. Single parents -- chiefly single mothers -- are more likely than married parents to have their kids get in trouble for behavior problems in school, and they and their children come under scrutiny and even attack by educators more often than traditional households.
This is from the Family Research Council:
As we work through the current Nebraska truancy law issue, it's important to keep this in mind. Let's make sure that we aren't using a bureaucratic, micromanaging rule as a club against single moms, who need all the support they can get to keep on doing the best they can for their kids.
