The Single-Mom Catastrophe

A Happy Fathers Day to you all.

Now how did this Op-Ed, “The single-mom catastrophe” by Kay S. Hymowitz  make it into the LaTimes on June 3, 2012. Ms. Hymowitz cites a study by Robert Lerman of the Urban Institute.

“Even among the mothers with the least qualifications and highest risks of poverty, marriage effects are consistently large and statistically significant.

Robert Lerman of the Urban Institute.

If Louisiana is to, ahem, ‘move forward’, then the States marriage policies that have led to the massive rise in children ‘born-not-of-the-marriage’ need to be rolled back.  These policies have impoverished a generation of our children.
