Education in the Welfare State
A clear connection between the female-headed family to be found in chronic welfare dependency and inadequate educational and school socialisation, inadequate school progress and inadequate preparation of children for necessary purposes of social control has been reported by Dornbusch, et al. (1986). Various researchers have tied welfare dependency to hard-core delinquency and have indicated a connection between such families and psychosocial dependency. There are various reports from police agencies that drug addiction is frequently found in broken families and families without suitable fathers. Reports abound from ghetto schools which indicate that only a small proportion of children of broken families are able to complete their education in a satisfactory manner.
