“Every study shows that a parent’s education level—particularly the mother’s—is the highest determinant of a child’s academic success. The positive effects are virtually lifelong, as one longitudinal study showed. It found that children of high school graduates pursue more education, get better jobs, make more money and are more optimistic than children whose mothers never graduated.” – Sharon Bonney, executive director of the National Coalition on Adult Basic Education.
