Study: Parents' incarceration takes toll on children
from Education Week
Without ever breaking a school rule or getting a low grade, 2.7 million American students are already further along the pipeline to prison than their classmates — simply because they have a parent who is behind bars. Studies show parental incarceration can be more traumatic to students than even a parent's death or divorce, and the damage it can cause to students' education, health and social relationships puts them at higher risk of one day going to prison themselves.
