Poverty, dropouts, pregnancy, suicide: What the numbers say about fatherless kids
The growing number of fatherless children in this country poses one of the the most serious problems in education today, according to best-selling author Alan Blankstein. He has spent most of his life advocating for kids who struggle in school. He wrote Failure is Not an Option, a guide to creating high-performing schools for all students. So, just how many kids are fatherless? NPR Ed put that question to Blankstein, who told us that 24.7 million kids in the U.S. don't live with a biological father.
