Dr. Kerri Raissian, Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Policy, published “Why Low Income Working Parents Need More Than Jobs” on the Scholars Strategy Network.  Dr. Raissian addressed how employment can raise the self-esteem of parents and enable them to be positive role-models, but it also has its negative ramifications.  Certain kinds of employment can be harmful to the parent’s mental health, and single-parent households need extra support.  Dr. Raissian described policy solutions for working parents that would help parents be financially independent, while mitigating children suffering in the process.  Read Kerri’s article below on the Scholars Strategy Network:
