The rising mountain of student debt is weighing down America’s young adults in myriad ways. It’s also a burden on their parents, who are quietly acting as economic supports by helping their adult children out with money, according to preliminary findings released Friday at this year’s Population Association of America conference in Boston.
Professor Brand’s research on the effects of single mother’s job loss on their children’s educational achievement and psychological well-being has been picked up by the media, including the LA Times. The study is forthcoming in the American Journal of Sociology.
