Single Moms in College Spend Nine Hours a Day on Housework
Adam Harris, The Atlantic
For 2.1 million single mothers attending college, the joyful moments of motherhood are compounded with competing time demands of coursework, parenthood, and employment.
Several colleges have launched programs aimed at students with children. Bard Microcollege Holyoke is a first-of-its-kind college created specifically for low-income women whose educations were interrupted by pregnancy and parenting. And Endicott College, also in Massachusetts, is home to a “Keys to Degrees” program that provides assistance to young parents—both men and women—and their children.
