Abstract

Over the past three decades, there have been dramatic demographic changes in the number of African American children being raised by a single parent During the years of this demographic change, discussions around the "pathologies" of African American families have intensified around questions regarding the impact of having African American males raised by their mothers without their fathers present Using the National Educational Longitudinal Study (NELS), this research examines the relative effects of being in a single parent mother-only versus father-only family (in 8th grade in 1988) on the educational achievement (in 1992 and 1994) of African American males
