Report: help low-income students by helping their parents

A new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation says more than half of Georgia families with young children lack economic stability and that parents in half of those families can’t find stable jobs.

The report, Creating Opportunity for Families: A Two-Generation Approach, is available at www.aecf.org. It says more than half of the unstable families are headed by a single parent and that a lack of education is a major problem. It recommends financial and health coaching, broader access to early childhood education, tax credits and other measures to ease the burden of parenting.
