The Challenges, Needs, and Success of Single Mother College Students
The single mother population is steady growing every day in post-secondary education. As of 2016, nearly 42% of single parents are community college students and 58% of the single parent students are attending a 4-year institute (public and private). The single mother population has doubled since then. In this paper, we will discuss how there are several available support systems that can assist in advancing to the road of achievement and personal growth. Furthermore, while trying to advance their education, the writer will give details of the challenges that single mothers face when pursuing a degree and the benefits of getting a college degree. Theoretical foundations are used to support rational questions, which are then presented within the broader problems that higher education institutions face.
