Resolving problems for students with imprisoned parents
from District Administration Magazine
More than 5 million American children face a rarely discussed educational challenge that has profound impact: seeing a parent spend time in prison. One in four black children in 2014 had a parent behind bars by the time they were 14 years old — more than double the rate for black children born in 1978, according to the book Children of the Prison Boom: Mass Incarceration and the Future of American Inequality (Oxford University Press, 2013). Black students are 7.5 times more likely than are white students to have a parent in prison.
