Trace the influence of family factors on children's emotional and educational well-being!

The effect of family changes on children's academic success is a new subject for study. Divorce, Family Structure, and the Academic Success of Children is a comprehensive volume that brings research on this hotly debated topic up to date. With clear tables and incisive arguments, it is a single-volume reference on this vexing sociocultural problem.

Divorce, Family Structure, and the Academic Success of Children offers a close look at the historical background and current theory of this field of study. But it is more than a compendium of known facts and completed studies. It examines issues of appropriate methodology and points out concerns for planning future research.

Divorce, Family Structure, and the Academic Success of Children summarizes current knowledge of the effects of various influences on children's emotional and educational well-being, including:

  • divorce and remarriage
  • single-parent families
  • nontraditional family structures
  • race
  • socioeconomic status
  • mobility
Educators, theorists, sociologists, and psychologists will find this volume an essential resource. With hundreds of useful references and clear organization, it presents new ideas in an easy-to-use format that makes it an ideal textbook as well.

From Library Journal:

How does divorce affect a child's performance in school? When a parent remarries, does a child's academic performance improve? These are some of the issues examined in this book. By presenting data from a number of different perspectives, Jeynes (who has written articles for the Journal of Divorce and Remarriage) clarifies the relationship between family make-up and academic success. Divorce, separation, remarriage, living with neither parent, and other domestic relationships are explored in detail. The information presented is important because knowing the effects of family structure on academic performance can help teachers help their students perform to the best of their abilities. Although some parents might find this work of interest, only those able to decipher the data (i.e., professional educators) will find it of any use. While not an essential purchase, this book is suitable for both academic and public libraries. Terry Christner, Hutchinson P.L., KS
