Abstract

Married and husbandless mothers are compared to assess how certain concomitants of fatherless families may be related to attitudes and behaviors relevant for their children's educational achievement. The findings indicate that husbandless mothers are generally more, rather than less, concerned about the educational achievement of their children, compared to married mothers. Frequently lacking supportive environments, however, the conduct of husbandless mothers is often inappropriate and their aspirations for their children depressed. The analysis focuses particularly upon neighborhood characteristics and also income and employment of the husbandless mothers and their children.
